i don’t get these new “cisphobic” blogs. why be so loud about something you’d actually never say to someone else’s face once you get off the computer? lol
Preeeetty sure that is the point?
It’s the whole Internet Tough Guy thing.
But in this case it’s not like an angry middle-class white kid who’s maybe gonna shoot people and be an asshole. It’s people who actually are subjected to horrible treatment by the people they dislike and they’re probably just joking or blowing off steam most of the time.
It’s immature and it’s annoying but it’s nothing to really worry about unless they start to get seriously threatening or something. They’re mad at the cis people who’ve hurt them and they’re making fun of the idea that they’re “just as bad” as people who actually try to oppress them.
But they aren’t subjected to horrible treatment, that’s the thing. At least they’re not subjected to horrible treatment because they are trans. If you are a femme-presenting DFAB demigirl, you’re not an oppressed trans person, I’m sorry. People are using “cis” as the new “preps”, that’s why “cisphobia” is so toxic. Like yes it does suck to be at the bottom of the high school food chain but I promise the preps and jocks are not picking on you because they are cis. They’re picking on you because that’s how the high school pecking order works, and that’s how it has always worked. And instead of talking about the toxic teenage social hierarchy for what it is, they’re using cisness as a scapegoat, which in turn hurts actual trans people who need cis allies in order to get on with their transitions and with their lives.
