It bears repeating

January 8, 2011 § 1 Comment

To every trans person who thinks that they can hate, misgender, misrepresent and ridicule other trans people to somehow advance our cause, let’s hear it again from Audre Lorde:

 

The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House

 

Addressing our differences with kindness and humility is hard work. Accepting that there are other ways of being trans, or other ways of being a man or a woman can be frightening. But how else are we to move forward?

§ One Response to It bears repeating

  • Noah Tourjee says:

    Sad state when people feel strength in the misguided slap to the face of a common thread. This extends to every corner of humanity, and is a step backward with all the motivation of a frightened child within.
