Local show on June 27th coming up in Riverside, California featuring bands comprised of (at least) 50% trans, genderqueer, non-binary, or trans identified members. We’re still looking for a band or two, some tabling, some zine readers, and some poetry. See what it’s all about!https://www.facebook.com/events/629771507105494/

It’s kind of funny, I see posts and shared links from people I know IRL, here and on FB, about the Trans Day of Visibility yesterday, of how trans people deserve love, support and all that jazz.

And yet only two people messaged me at all yesterday. And one of them messaging for me to pick them up from a bus terminal, not even about any sort of check in or care or all that talk about “love” and “acceptance”.

Happy Trans Day of Visibility indeed. Where everyone links and reblogs happy messages of trans support and just sort of ignores actual trans people in their lives.
At least that certainly seems to be my experience.

Sexualized desexualization is trans women being un-datable and un-fuckable, yet trans women are a mainstream porn genre.

To clarify:

I’m not saying loads of people secretly are attracted in healthy ways to trans women and hide it.

I’m saying that the majority of attraction felt towards us is heavily interwoven with morbid curiosity and disgust.

It’s especially bad from straight men, because they are the most aggressive about defending their sexuality (to others and themself). And virtually everyone sees trans women as being kind of men and kind of women - something that makes straight men and cis lesbians see us as an INHERENT compromise of their identity.

Sexualized desexualization sounds like an inherently contradictory term.

It means trans women are seen as unattractive, yet we are seen as (gross) sex objects and primarily viewed in terms of sex. We can’t even walk into a bathroom without narrative dictating we’re either going to rape someone or be raped.

Even when it comes to people “supporting” us, it is mostly centred around sex. Our current and past partners congratulate themselves on being Good People who’d settle for fucking a trans women. They hold it up as some kind of proof that they aren’t transmisogynistic or transphobic. And I can’t even count the ridiculous number of bi/pan people who have flat-out said to me that girls like me are “the best of both worlds” as an intended compliment, and been offended at my reaction.

That is sexualized desexualization. We are sex objects,  but we are icky, disposable, and shameful sex objects.

Bolded for fucking truth.

May you be showered in violets and roses.

I’m thinking of starting some new blogs and focusing on those rather than this one. Let me know if you’d like some links when I get them created.
