Gay Peeps Need To 'Evolve Already' As Well
Well, the trans community feels y'all have some evolving of your own to do when it comes to trans civil rights issues.
Gay males need to come clean about and evolve on your issues with transwomen. As much as elements of the community have internalized trans hatred Jim Fouratt would be proud of, being trans is not a threat to your masculinity or your rainbow way of life.
Lesbians, and especially those of the radical lesbian separatist variety need to evolve from your disco era hatred of transwomen and the hateraid elements of you have for transmen that you have carried into the 21st century and to TBLG community activism..
It's so bad now a new generation of radical lesbian separatists has picked up the sword and shield of trans hatred and written anti-trans screeds in their blogosphere that would make Janice Raymond and Germaine Greer proud..
The GL community as a whole needs to stop throwing stones at the African American community and complaining about what the Black community hasn't done for you rights wise.
You're sitting in pink tinted windowed glass houses guilty of the same sin you accuse others of when it comes to the human rights of transpeople.
You need to evolve already and get busy being civil rights allies of transpeople instead of civil rights oppressors like you've been since the 70's and sadly, some of you have continued to be in the second decade of the 21st century.
