Division In The Trans Community Is Mostly A Class Divide
Sums up basically all the problems.
Rich trans people get surgery and hormones
Whether their doctors prescribe them or not.
Poor trans people struggle for access to
Healthcare at all.
Rich trans people go to college and
Learn about neopronouns and
The multitude of gender identities and
The chromosomal variations of sex—
Not all trans people do that. Rich or poor it matters not
You can also just be rich and
Stupid as fuck or poor and
Read a lot. All of what you learn in college
Is guided readings, discussions and lectures
Many of which are available for free on the internet.
When I started this podcast and blog
My original goal was to educate and provide
The things I learned in my primo education
Problem is —
People don’t want to learn
What they don’t know.
Only people I talk to are
Folks that either
1. Wish they were still in gender studies (like me, hey everybody)
2. Are currently in it and want me to help them on their exams lmfao NOT kidding
Problem is I’m actually making this
About my life as I live it
Which some people have found disappointing lmfao
Tell me about it folks
Anyway I feel bad because like
Upperhand mars and Buck Angel
And all these high school trans angst bullshitters
All the haters are just
People who can’t or won’t or don’t understand
Subtly, nuance, other peoples perspective
Things you learn living with roommates and going to class.
It’s just a fact.
Do I have stupid faggot friends wkrh masters degrees who can’t buy their own pants?
Of course! Goes both ways
But it does feel almost
Supervillain of me
To pick on some hick from Oklahoma
Who’s been angry about neopronouns and
Trans women for the entire time
His poor little brain has tried to wrap around it.
Or hers, depending on
How supervillain we’re going here.
Sucks that class is such a big deal
When it comes to access for basically
Anything in America.
It’s almost like capitalism
Rots everyone’s soul as well as their
Job prospects. Le sigh.
Ta ta for now, later.
