Anonymous asked:tbh Laverne Cox advocates that misgendering is the exact same as violence against trans* people which is sort of a giant insult against trans* folk that have been beaten (sometimes to death). so she's not exactly an angel. of course JG and Bendy aren't amazing either.
wait im confused because that sounds like a rad thing to say. by misgendering someone you’re refusing to respect them as a person which is a really bad thing, how is calling someone out on that disrespectful?
all that aside why did green and cumberbatch even get on the list? what did they do? they’re white men in popular media OOOOHHHHHH QUICK SOMEONE GIVE THEM A MEDAL, WE’RE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE
IN ADDITION if you misgender someone in a public place and no one knew they were trans then it could LEAD TO violence so yes misgendering someone IS IN FACT an act of violence more times than not so like I don’t know where anon thinks that’s a bad thing. A lot of trans people have in fact been beaten BECAUSE They were misgendered and therefore outed as trans. Misgendering leads to violence so misgedering = violence. Disrespectful AND potentially physically harmful.
