have you ever equated female to having a vagina and/or breasts or being male to having a penis/pecs/testicles? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever said anything about men not being able to have periods? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever laughed at a “man in a dress” joke? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever invaded a space meant for trans people? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever invalidated someone’s gender? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever compared the systematic oppression trans people face every day to a few blogs online that poke fun at cis people and point out what cis people have done to trans people? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

have you ever said or did anything that suggested that being gay was a method of birth control? you’ve contributed to transphobia.

just because you’re not openly hateful towards trans people doesn’t at all mean that you aren’t transphobic or that you don’t contribute to transphobia on a daily basis.

stop being so fucking rude, the point she was trying to make in the first place is obvious and all you had to do was politely point out that she needed to specify that she meant cis-women, not jump to the conclusion she is trans-misogynistic. you just said "how hard is it to say “wow I’m sorry, what I said was transmisogynistic and I will correct my post" well how hard is it for you to simply point out when a person has made an honest mistake rather than accuse her of being somehting she isn't.

HAHAHAHA. If someone fucks up it’s not my responsibility to coddle them. I wasn’t rude. And there was no jumping to conclusions needed. I didn’t accuse of her of being anything. The statement was transmisogynistic. there is no room for interpretation. It doesn’t MATTER if the original poster intended it to be or not. Like I said before, telling someone they are stepping on someone’s foot isn’t being rude, and just because someone doesn’t INTEND to stand on someone’s foot doesn’t mean that they aren’t doing so. To continue the analogy, if the person just keeps standing on that persons foot and explaining that they didn’t see it or mean to step on it while staying on the foot, it doesn’t help anything. Getting off someone’s foot is more pressing than explaining yourself.

Telling someone they are being transmisogynistic isn’t a death sentence, seriously, people need to be able to look at themselves critically and improve when faced with valid criticism. But when people start trying to shuffle responsibility and make excuses (consciously or not) instead of just sincerely apologizing and think they are going to be absolved for their weak ass apology, they are out of order. Plus, once she actually addressed that her statement was transmisogynistic and changed her post, I said alright great. So get the fuck out of my inbox, you’re the rude one.

imagine if women could biologically reproduce with one another

imagine how gorgeous the world would be

Women can. This is just transmisogynistic.

I apologise, I didn’t mean for it to come off that way, I was talking about cis…

Well, like I said, I do apologise. I was just saying that i didn’t mean for what I intended to say to be misconstrued, my point was just worded poorly. I know that trans women are women, but like I said, I was talking about two cis women being able to biologically reproduce since they can’t, I just obviously wasn’t clear. I apologise if I was transmisogynistic anyway but that really wasn’t my intention at all and I think I was just misunderstood

Idk why when people are confronted about transmisogyny they don these linguistic acrobatics to prevent themselves from acknowledging their actions. “If I was transmisogynistic” and going to lengths to explain away without acknowledging any personal responsibility that what you said was (not maybe) transmisogynistic. It’s not about what you meant to or didn’t mean to do. If you step on someone’s foot you don’t just say I’m sorry if I stepped on your foot. You get off their foot and apologize for doing it. How hard is it to say “wow I’m sorry, what I said was transmisogynistic and I will correct my post”

Okay? I apologise that what I said was transmisogynistic, I was just trying to explain that I do see trans women as women and that I wasn’t trying to disregard them in my post, I wasn’t trying to skirt around the issue, I was trying to make myself clear.

Alright great

Well there isn’t really any other way for it to come off as. You should apologize for saying something transmisogynistic. Just saying you didn’t mean for it to come off that way isn’t a sincere apology acknowledging why what you said was wrong. By not specifying cis women you are complicit in transmisogyny and giving the impression that you don’t include trans women in the category of women
