Great minds! I almost posted on insta the same type of message. When you're parents repeatedly tell you you're a danger to the gene pool and you father suggests hanging as the solution, when you lose your entire 1)church, 2) school, 3)other friend circle again and again when you come out, when you go to clubs in a pack for your very safety and when you don't show the rainbow on your car so you aren't hassled by the police, then you've earned the right to ask that question. Christ this pisses me off. At the same time bog standard straight people are invading everything the LGB has, the younger generation's tolerance for us has plummeted. Have you noticed the slurs when someone experiences real transphobia? They are all gay or lesbian slurs. Joe public is an idiot and can't tell the difference, which makes me think that public as been dying for a reason to stomp on us again.

Exactly. I feel like I'm being dragged down with this idiocy by virtue of being GNC. People think GNC people are transgender now and act all weird around me. I'm so tired of this entire thing.

All of this because we won gay marriage? Why are people so irrational over something so completely harmless? Gay people as a group have harmed no one, yet we're continuously hated for existing as we are. There aren't even enough of us to be a real threat to anything.

That sucks. GNC here as well, and just so damn thankful I missed the indoctrination. My fight against "girly" things started very young.

I honestly don't think it was winning marriage rights. I think it's the fucking marketing and the full on use of human suffering as a way to sell goods. It makes my skin crawl. And I was naive at the beginning as well. I thought it was amazing and awesome that Subaru would put lesbians like me in a commercial. Christ, even if Subaru was sincere, the hordes that followed certainly weren't. Once we became a money maker, not from our own wealth, btw, but in getting straight allies to buy things, it was all over. Since we aren't the actual focus (lesbian buying power is among the lowest), the grifters making money off of our suffering are far more interested in keeping their real marks happy. They never had any incentive to support our rights.

Even worse, TIMs are a huge market, so the pandering will continue right up until the major lawsuits hit and win. Then the back pedaling will be epic. And the cries for where were the feminists and where were the lesbians will be thunderous.

When Rand Paul asked that in the Senate (of the US, just in case his name isn't familiar) I was so angry. I know damn well it was probably WoLF that gave him the information. Such BS, crap on the women trying to stop this, but pretend to be protecting their rights, and center yourself as the hero.
What I wouldn't give for some honesty and integrity somewhere in business or politics. (I won't hold my breath)

Unless you fully perform the gender stereotypes of your sex, in trying to appear as an "ally" people will keep asking you if you aren't really trans.
