Everyday we open up the internet, we get to see how far the world still has to go. The world is full of misplaced hate, guided by conservative views deeply rooted in religion and fear. Fear of what exactly? Conservatives seem to fear everything not to say all of them fear everything. The majority seem to originate from Generation X, Baby Boomers to the Silent Generations. It’s us the Millennials that are blamed for the worlds problems and forward liberal thinking. However the conservatives seem to be afraid of LGBT issues in droves. From gay marriage to transgender people having to use the bathroom.
Social justice and basic human rights are very important to me as a transgender women. I want all of the rights that my cisgender women and men have. When we fight for these rights we are seen as the aggressors, how dare we ask for something as simple as using the toilet. In their eyes we are these perverse monsters that want to rape their women and children. What about the countless thousands of us that have children of our own? I have asked this many times before; not once has a conservative answered me. They so firmly believe that we are perverse mentally ill monsters so we can’t have children right?
Recently Washington state announced changes to its bathroom policies; these policies protect transgender people using public bathrooms. I came across an article saying “Washington state opens all women’s bathrooms to men” Which they are clearly implying transgender women are men. Not biased at all are they? They make it sound like Washington State is just now opening all bathrooms or something. When our state has had protections for transgender people for years. They just now take notice when modifications are made to it? If you would like to read the conservative article it can be found here: WND.com Since I have no way to keep my mouth shut when I see injustice, I had to start expressing my feelings. Guess what some of my views got deleted right quick of their page; bury the truth conservatives. Also not to much surprise any conservatives that openly bashed me and called me mentally ill and what have you kept their comments from being deleted. At one point I even told one man he was a waling personification of white male privilege, yuuuup comment deleted. His comments not so much. So lets get right into it instead of having to dig through the post here are some of the highlights from that discussion. The hate and transphobia of this demographic of people is very real.
