“I honestly couldn’t care less what cis people think about the community. I know how they feel but the cis community is shit so I don’t care about their opinions on our genders.”
You mean the vast majority of the human population?
I hate how this website throws around the word “community”. Communities share something in common, and then interact with one another based on that commonality.
Cis people aren’t a “community”. They’re just living their goddamn lives. They weren’t born in a body that doesn’t match their brain, so it’s not something they even have to think about. How the hell would they be a community over something that isn’t even a part of their lives?
Having some trait that other people might have doesn’t make anyone part of a community. You don’t see people talking about things like “the red hair community”, “the pineapple-loving community”, or “the blue-eyed community”, do you?
There’s more to a community than “LOL WE’RE ALL [X], now what?”
Maybe that’s what I can’t stand the so-called “queer community” and the “trans community” in particular. Sure, I’m bisexual.. doesn’t mean I want to be called “queer” or lumped into a really obnoxious archetype.
Sure, I’m trans… doesn’t mean I agree with the “trans community”s constant gender-politics bullshit.
Simply existing doesn’t make you a community member.
Cis people are just existing.
They aren’t walking around, approaching random-ass strangers and saying “OMG ur cis too? Can I have ur number and we can like be BFFS FOREVER!” like so many trans** people seem to do.
Just because you’re trans, doesn’t mean I’m going to like you or want to be your friend or be a part of your special “community”.
Stop lumping all LGBT people into one stereotype and expect that we all want to be your friends and will feel exactly the same way as you do. There is a diversity of lives, opinions, and personalities in such a large group of people.
I feel that sometimes this “community” bullshit is trying to force people into even more boxes.
