I’m white, so I’m not the best person to explain why it’s racism and appropriation. Here’s a really good post written by someone who’s black that explains why you shouldn’t use AAVE (African American Vernacular English) unless you’re black.
trans people are not responsible for cis people’s transphobia
to expand on this, it is not our job to make it “easier” for cis people to accept us. transphobes are always going to be transphobic, regardless of whether or not we use certain gender identities or pronoun sets.
cis people who do not accept ALL forms of transness instead of more “popular” forms of transness are completely transphobic.
the US is unreal like girls cant wear shorts to school, you can literally lose your job for being gay, and unarmed black children are brutally murdered on the regular but old white ppl r still like “what a beautiful country. i can freely carry a gun for no reason and some of our mountains look like presidents. god bless”
