True & Honest Fan
A man is not a woman, a woman is not a man. Sexuality, homo or hetero or whatever, should be between consenting adults and that’s it. For a trans to be ‘valid’, they must have everyone else agree that they are what they say they are. I do not stop being gay if you don’t believe I am, even if you don’t like that, but a TIM isn’t a woman anymore if no one believes they are.Question to those of you here who are pro-LGB but anti-T: why?
It seems like the LGB at large tend to be pro-T, and this makes sense. The philosophical underpinnings of pro-LGB rhetoric and thought are the exact same used to justify "trans validity" and other pro-trans stances. Justification for LGB stems from queer theory and a libertarian-esque individualism when it comes to sex and gender identity. I'm not saying all - or even most - lesbians and gays read Foucault or Anzaldúa, but their line of thinking and structuring of their arguments is either heavily influenced or the exact same (yes this includes those in this thread). I can't even think of a valid anti-trans argument that couldn't also be spun to justify outright homophobia.
Note that I don't support T, I think it's a mental illness and stems from the same places as other mental illnesses, but in general I'd say the same is true with LGB.
Want to dress like a spaz, dye your hair, whatever I don’t give a shit. When you demand that I agree with your nonsense that does affect me and others, I start to care.
