there is something grotesque about all the random people saying that marriage ‘equality’ should be on the same level as ensuring the basic survival of trans kids (see this for context)
i wonder how many of them clicked through to see that the tweet was written by a trans woman of color?
literally get the fuck out of my face
if you cannot understand why making sure that trans kids (and adults)
have roofs over their heads, have food in their bellies, and clothes on their backs
needs to be prioritized over and above marriage ‘equality’
Reasons once again to not trust that mentality of, we’ll do the easier, less controversial stuff first and get to you later. Cause everyone who gets pushed lower and lower on the list is always the most marginalized in whatever community.
It makes me even question the emphasis on “rights,” and that’s pretty sad. Rights can be granted and taken away. And these rights are important, but they’re relative luxuries compared to basic survival needs.
Like yeah I understand that you want visitation rights if your partner is in the hospital, but at least in the u.s. access to & safety in a hospital is a fucking LUXURY. Knowing you won’t be deported or assaulted or sterilized. Having access to a real hospital because you aren’t homeless or in prison or uninsured.
The first rights anyone needs to be fighting for are the rights of survival for the most marginalized in your community. Again, it’s pathetic that that’s even a question.
This white gay bourgeoisie agenda needs to step waaay back.
