"That stereotype about transsexuals being all wild and criminal and bold and outside the norm and, like, engendering in the townsfolk the courage to break free from the smothering constraints of conformity? That stereotype is about drag queens. Maria is transsexual and she is so meek she might disappear." - Imogen Binnie, "Nevada"
Here we have another example of a trans guy being a dick. Ian Harvie with some whorephobia. Some sex workers pulled him up too, apparently this is funny to him. Tweets are all still there. Fuck this guy.
“I’m Buck Angel and I’m a complete and utter bastard, when I’m not justifying violence against trans women I am trying to take what little money they have”
(might not be an actual quote)
this, on the other hand, is an actual quote (warning: transmisogyny, violence)
I’m a huge advocate for disclosure, because I believe a lot of people get themselves in bad situations because they do not disclose. For example, trans women who might hook up with a cis-gendered guy and then he goes home with her and finds out she has a penis and flips out and beats her up or kills her. That’s horrible, and I really believe by not disclosing it’s very disrespectful to the other person because they might not be into it and it makes them feel very freaked out about themselves.
Let me put this a different way: as a bisexual and a rape survivor, i have to be in a completely different mindset for penis versus vagina. Completely aside from the gender presentation, the sex organs actually matter to the activities available and the likelihood of flashbacks. So I absolutely respect the idea that people should be allowed to know what to expect when the clothes come off, because getting something else can be literally frightening. When you go out seeking one thing and getting another, it’s going to freak you out. If it doesn’t, then consider labeling yourself Pansexual. Even then I don’t think anyone has the right to judge someone else for having preferences and expecting to communicate about them.
So yes, i think people should be able to say what they’ve got going on downstairs, and i also think people should be allowed to ask. Not just about the scientific nature of the equipment, but the STI risk, grooming habits, kinks and fetishes, and piercings, too. There are worse things than discovering incompatible piercings or less hair than you prefer, but finding out your potential partner misled, outright lied, or at best has bad communication skills is high on the list of shitty discoveries.
So you respect the idea that trans women wanting to maintain privacy should be fair game for violence?
Uhm, no? Where does it say violence in my writing? I said I think communication could be better, and that I understand why someone might get upset in all sorts of ways for feeling misled, not least because our society doesn’t teach people to be allowed to ask for what they want.
This entire thing is about violence, that is what the quote is justifying, that is what you agreed with
[more warnings for violence, death]
“but finding out your potential partner misled, outright lied, or at best has bad communication skills is high on the list of shitty discoveries.”
this asshole with a cissexist definition of “bisexual” thinks that the gall they or someone else might be attracted to a trans woman without knowing their a trans woman overrides our desire not to be beaten or killed by intimate partners/random strangers.
I just tune out cis people and trans men when they try to talk over trans women about disclosure (and they always advocate mandatory disclosure). They never ever say anything that’s worth repeating.
If this is such a problem for y’all, then fucking ask. Don’t expect us to hold your goddamned hands through this.
Also, since cis people and trans men love to talk so fucking much about trans women tricking them into bed without revealing their genitals, how often does this actually happen? I’m guessing between zero and none.
The cases I know of involving murder and other violence wherein the perpetrator claims that he was tricked into sex and surprised by an unexpected genital, thus goading him into uncontrollable violence, were lies. It’s an attempt to leverage the fragility of male heterosexuality as a defense against violently abusing and even killing people, and in every case I researched, it did not reflect the truth.
So why don’t y’all just shut up about your anxieties about trans women tricking you into bed with the wrong genitals and let us navigate relationships in the real world without your overbearing input? If you find yourself in a position where you feel it necessary to explain to trans women why any of us should follow your instructions on how to navigate relationships in the real world, I strongly suggest you instead find some way to remove your head from your ass and leave us the fuck alone.

I’ve had several fights with Buck over shit like this. He’s very arrogant, does not give a fuck about anyone else and certainly does not give a fuck about the community he claims to represent & exploit but not be a part of.
As a trans guy, I’m getting real sick of seeing trans guys transition into complete dicks. I’ve just had to add Ian Harvie to this list. Fucking sort it out guys, you’re making us all look bad.
THE GUY IN THE BACK JUST NODS AT THE KID
like, ‘yeah you can totally sit there’
New Pope is the best Pope. He doesn’t hate on everyone who doesn’t conform to his faith. He lets tiny children sit in his big official chair. He poses for selfies. He is a good Pope and I hope he is with us for a long time.
this is actually significant because that isn’t just “the official chair.”
that’s the Holy See.
The Holy See is considered the sovereign of Vatican City. No, seriously.
Every other pope has used a throne for the Holy See. Francis replaced the ornate object with THE SAME CHAIR THAT EVERY OTHER LEADER WHO VISITS THE VATICAN USES. This was an action that created a considerable stir, as one might imagine. It was a significant remark, metaphorically, putting the pope at the same level as every other world leader. No greater a man than his peers.
And after all of that, he sees a little kid run past him and lets him sit in the freaking Holy See.
And no one stops him.
Good man. Best pope.
That kid is living the dream and the Pope is just like “Okay” and the guy in the back is like “Ye kid”
Pope Francis is what all Catholics should aspire to be.
