Some person on the Tumblr who apparently has free time wrote this. So, here it is. It does not speak to me. This person misses the point of my activism. We speak different languages. Stop telling me and other gays and lesbians to believe your shit. We don’t, and we don’t have to. That doesn’t mean we don’t think you deserve respect and rights – it does mean we will not substitute our own priorities for yours. We don’t work for you. We can make our own priorities.
I am a dyke. Female matters. Females matter. We exist. Our existence is not transphobic. Our existence does not diminish yours. Our needs do not diminish yours.
Perhaps someday you will realize that you would gain more ground by respecting and acknowledging difference and then identifying what common interests we may have. Perhaps someday you would be an ally to females.
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.
Also, everyone has a story. You are not special.
PS – STOP SHAMING DYKES FOR NOT WANTING TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU.
Sex is not gender. Sheesh.
And I mean it, I am already bored with this conversation.
Discrimination based on so-called “gender identity” is sex discrimination. Thanks EEOC! Here is the decision!
EEOC in Macy Case
Also, for all you stupid recent “trans activists” who think the EEOC decision “upsets” me, a history lesson (also reproduced below – and my thinking has evolved since 2000 some, because, at root, gender identity is sexist).
Now piss off! I was a dyke when you were still a heterosexual married man with 2.5 children and a boring job.
Because this is such crap.
Why Do Lesbians Not See How the Political Transgender Community Does Not Care About Female Reality?
I did this very fast, but the edits are both what Serano is actually saying and my notes (which are in bold and/or italics for the most part)
