    “When you’re a trans woman you are made to walk this very fine line, where if you act feminine you are accused of being a parody and if you act masculine, it is seen as a sign of your true male identity. And if you act sweet and demure, you’re accused of reinforcing patriarchal ideas of female passivity, but if you stand up for your own rights and make your voice heard, then you are dismissed as wielding male privilege and entitlement. We trans women are made to teeter on this tightrope, not because we are transsexuals, but because we are women. This is the same double bind that forces teenage girls to negotiate their way between virgin and whore, that forces female politicians and business women to be agressive without being seen as a bitch, and to be feminine enough not to emasculate their alpha male colleagues, without being so girly as to undermine their own authority.”

    #CisWithTheT Trends as Thousands Decide to Denounce Transphobia

    Into reports of the sudden and wonderful blossoming of the #CisWithTheT twitter hashtag in Britain.

    Some say it was a toxic BBC article spreading TERF lies that created the uproar, while others point to the  Dave Chappelle tragedy.

    Regardless, suddenly a lot of cis people had had enough of the transphobia and came out in strong support of trans people. 

    Here are a few of the tweets:

    @SMichaelsonn: Cis lesbian here; I am not threatened by trans women using female spaces (where they belong) or using the term ‘lesbian’. What I /am/ threatened by is people constantly weaponising me against my trans sisters and policing gender non-conformity.

    @SpillerOfTea#CisWithTheT currently trending at Number 4 in the United Kingdom. Because, as nearly every poll shows (except the ones conducted amongst 80 hand-picked transphobes), the majority of cis women support trans inclusivity, but are silenced by a minority of hateful bigots.

    @KateHeywood8I’m a CIS woman and am furious on an almost daily basis by the increasingly absurd actions of the toilet obsessives. Trans women are most definitely welcome to use the same spaces as me. Love to our trans sisters #CisWithTheT

    @hotmessica__I’m a cishet woman and I’m genuinely terrified of the GCs [gender critical feminists]  who try to reduce my womanhood to just my genitals and organs. I’ve been questioned in a toilet once because I’m tall, broad shouldered and dress tomboyish. GC ideology is a threat to all people #CisWithTheT

    Link to open letter here!

    @rhipratchett: Hate can not be allowed to win. Be better humans. Choose kindness, understanding and inclusion. I stand with the trans community today and always.  #CisWithTheT

    @AffleckEmma: I am a cis lesbian and I am so sick of seeing people who normally don’t give a damn about lesbian rights (and who are outright homophobes) tweeting #IStandWithLesbians because they want to claim all trans people are predators. Your bigotry is not progressive. #CisWithTheT

    @23rdspiral: I’m a 40yr old cis woman. Until last year I had an amazing elderly relative who transitioned when I was a teen. It never occurred to me she was anything other than herself. I miss her. Trans women are women. GCs don’t speak for me their ‘feminism’ is not feminism. #CisWithTheT

    It seems good cis people have had enough of the constant barrage of transphobic falsehoods produced by trans-exclusionary radical feminists and  right wing extremists. Good people see and feel the suffering this propaganda is causing among trans people. Many of them also understand that this is a repeat of the homophobic rhetoric of yesterday.

    Keep up the good work, cis allies. This is helping!

    If you’re a UK resident please sign the letter and complain to the BBC! We cannot continue to let the TERF stronghold on British media continue.

    i want to share with you some of my favourite graffiti from Pompeii

  • “Weep, you girls. My penis has given you up. Now it penetrates men’s behinds. Goodbye, wondrous femininity!“ 
  • “Amplicatus, I know that Icarus is buggering you. Salvius wrote this.“ 
  • “We two dear men, friends forever, were here. If you want to know our names, they are Gaius and Aulus.“
  • “Floronius, privileged soldier of the 7th legion, was here. The women did not know of his presence. Only six women came to know, too few for such a stallion.“
  • “On April 19th, I made bread.“
  • “ I have buggered men.“
  • “If anyone does not believe in Venus, they should gaze at my girlfriend.“
  • “It took 640 paces to walk back and forth between here and there ten times.“
  • “Chie, I hope your hemorrhoids rub together so much that they hurt worse than when they every have before!“
  • “Epaphra is not good at ball games.”
  • “Two friends were here.  While they were, they had bad service in every way from a guy named Epaphroditus.  They threw him out and spent 105 and half sestertii most agreeably on whores.“
  • “Secundus likes to screw boys.“
  • barfyscorpion

    I’ve always loved these. Humanity has never fucking changed.
