Not Feeling This Transphobic Country
But I'm not feeling particularly patriotic on this Fourth of July 2018. I'm not feeling love for a country that gleefully hates on me and my trans community just for unapologetically existing.
It also hates on me for being unapologetically Black and female.
There's also the people who claim they support trans people, but are silent about the injustice being aimed at transgender people.
The worst people are the clueless or self hating trans people whose whiteness was more important than ensuring that our community wouldn't be oppressed, and sold us out by voting for Trump.
FYI, your white skin will not protect you from the trans oppression being visited upon us by the Trump misadministration
So nope, not feeling this transphobic country on this 4th of July.
But this November, we have an opportunity to change that. And we need to seize that opportunity to vote the oppressors out.
