I’m gonna try and be nice here but I make no promises.
TUMBLR DOES NOT HATE YOU FOR BEING CIS. That’s also not what cis means (comfortable in my skin). Cis simply means that the gender you identify as is the same as the sex you were assigned at birth.
I do not hate cis people. I hate cis privilege. I hate living in a world where my sisters and brothers and siblings are murdered for being who they are. I hate that trans women of color are more likely to be murdered. So much more likely. I hate that I can be fired because of my gender.
And don’t tell me that Tumblr loves trans people. There are transphobic people everywhere on Tumblr. There are TERFs who tell trans women that they are not really women. There are people who tell me that I am just a confused lesbian who wants some male privilege.
Tumblr is not always a safe place for trans people.
You know where else isn’t always a safe place for trans people?
The world outside the internet.
I have been harassed. I have been followed into bathrooms. And that is the bare minimum. My sisters have been beaten, spit on, screamed at, and (far too frequently) murdered.
If your biggest issue as a cis person is that people on tumblr don’t like you for being cis (when they most likely just dislike your cis privilege and how your life is more valued than ours), you should probably rethink and check yourself.
