you know, it’s funny
I’ll see a post where
OP: I hate trans people they’re annoying omg they’re //oppressing the cisses// blah blah privilege vomit
Informed person: hey you’re being wrong and hurtful and this is why -names multiple incredibly saddening and horrifying and angering statistics that are accurate-
Reblogger: THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE READ ALL WEEK OMG THIS MADE ME SO HAPPY YEAH GIT ‘EM TELL ‘EM WHATS WHAT HELL FUCKDAMN YEAH SHITFIRE
…like you just read statistics about trans suicide rates and trans homelessness rates and trans murder rates and you’re just happy that somebody that was wrong got proven wrong?
Like instead of rejoicing over the wrongness of Illinformed-McHaterson being exposed can you, like, take a couple of minutes to absorb the abysmal reality of the facts that exist that keep us living like mice in the walls of this world, can you not seem so overeager to buddy buddy up when you probably just heard these stats for the first time reading that post and you’ve decided to make these realizations about how good you feel or about how //supportive// you are bc I have never in my life seen a list detailing the injustices against, the erasure of, and the constantly reinforced urge to kill trans people (especially trans women of Color and especially Black trans women) and thought
FUCK YEAH THAT’S AWESOME

-omg South Koreans abandon babies we should save them!
Different age of consent in ~Asia~!
the reason china’s gender imbalance is so big is because they only want boys to carry on the family line!!!! WOW CHINA IS SO SEXIST

There are real Caucasian people who live in the Caucasus region, and they are not white.—
