Trans people shouldn't *have* to be brave.

Trans people shouldn't *have* to be radical.

Making your entire existence a protest is *exhausting* for many, and not tenable for many more.

It should just okay to be trans.

But society is hostile to us, so I have no choice but to be radical about my own identity.

I would rather expend my energy on other problems, like helping others, rather than expending it on something that shouldn't be up for negotiation.

@Elizafox I don't want to be brave. I want to be safe.

@Elizafox Asserting your identity is always going to be radical. Capitalist society doesn't want people to have an identity. Drones don't have names.
But of course throwing gender and/or sex into the thing puts you at the sharp end, even then. That's so unfair.

@Elizafox All people are the same, independend from gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. The constitution of some countries granting that, but reallity still is that, even in this countries, politics and a homophob socitity is determing which gender are acceptable. Wtf. why gender needs definition? Just let the people be like they want, we dont need drawers to sort the people in. We need to get out of boxes and on the next level of humanity..

@Elizafox yes, having to constantly "prove" to others who are different to you (and we are all different) that you indeed have the 'right to exist' is total bullshit.
