This is your daily reminder that touching a trans girl's breasts or crotch to "check them" or "see if she's real" is sexual assault. If you have done this, you have sexually assaulted another human being and you're rapist scum.
… this happened to me (I’m a trans* boi that presents pretty femme) when I was bootblacking. Some asshole grabbed my chest and asked if “I had breasts or something”. It was totally gross.
Yet another person who doesn’t face transmisogyny…
What the actual fuck is wrong with some Tumblrites? It’s not sexual assault if you identify as male in any capacity? Good lord what horrible people.
[pre-gifs] “…So, she [Paris Hilton] was a very wealthy woman, [initially] not that well known and then she gets to mega-stardom. How? The sex tape. Which was made by her boyfriend at the time, who was married, and thirteen years her senior. She sued to try and stop it [the tape’s circulation] and she couldn’t and it became the best selling sex tape for two years on the porn market.”
Well, that makes a lot of sense and now I feel kind of mean.
Abuse comes in many forms, from many sources and trickles down in many unexpected ways.
Actively reserving all judgment can be difficult, I find myself being manipulated and encouraged daily by the media or my peers to have opinions about or take exception to things that are none of my business. I feel it’s important to try and actively examine these influences and question their true intent or effect on participants and bystanders alike. A lot of times, mental, emotional and physical abuse are perpetuated by seemingly harmless or insignificant attitudes and opinions.
It is important to remember that when you alienate others, you are alienating parts of yourself.
