Trans women over here insisting that
The misogyny they experience has a
Trans-edge to it, a trans-misogynistic web
Of trans-specific misogyny.
What do you call it
When a trans man’s masculinity is
Mocked, belittled, cast away?
What is the term for the phenomenon
Of saying “I’m trans masculine”
And people laughing, saying
“That doesn’t exist”?
What do we call that?
Problem is– the woke left would have to acknowledge
Misandry as a thing, which is
So if we can’t acknowledge misandry, if we can’t
Acknowledge what is happening
To trans masculine people
Who are perceived by society–
What is that called?
Are we back to misogyny again…?
Do we have to acknowledge that
Trans women get their own kind of misogyny
And trans men
Still experience misogyny after transitioning?
That’s what it seems like to me, as I am
Not born a man.
I don’t understand–
Trans women are women and yet
They have their own
Specialized kind of misogyny….
If trans women are women
Why not call it misogyny…!?!
An explanation would be that
This is regular misogyny that
Women, trans and cis alike, experience– and
Trans men experience
Misandry. Alas these concepts are
Not welcome in the brainwashed
Tik-tokked instagram reddit society.
Due to a complete lack of words
Allotted to me, I am left
Just regular-ass fucking misogyny
Trapped in a world where
My masculinity is superficial, and somehow
Trans women are the only trans people
Who experience discrimination.
Globally, no one listens to feminists
Who discredit male experience–
Why is it that in the trans community
You aren’t even allowed to be proud
Of your masculinity
Unless you look like someone
Who defies the expectation of
What others think trans looks like?
Even then, many people
Especially gay men, people who
Hate being called women, and
Hate women’s bodies–
I have to sit here and ignore the fact
That many gay men treat trans men
Like dykes. No one enjoys
The truth, only enjoy
The surprises, the discrepancies
They only want to hear about
Their allyship and positivity.
I don’t think it’s fair
To blame straight people
When the loudest people with
The most influence in the LGBTQAI community
Have always been, and forever will be
The g’s, the people with
The most money.
