#IfTransTalkedLikeCis

A hashtag I came up with this morning while fucking around on twitter:

  • Stop calling me “trans”. I’m not “trans”, I’m just NORMAL.
  • Oh, you’re cis? Nice to meet you! So, what’s your vagina like?
  • Wow! You look great! I never would have gussed you were cis!
  • But are you SURE you want to remain male? How do you know for sure this is right for you?
  • But “cis” people might regret not transitioning! We need strict criteria for diagnosing cisgenderism to prevent that
  • People with mental health disorders might think they’re cis when they’re really not. We can’t trust their choices
  • It’s not my fault I’m not attracted to cis ppl. I just find your bodies icky. It’s just my sexual orientation!
  • No, but what’s your REAL name? You know, the one you actually chose.
  • Wait, so you think you’re a womon-born-womon? Isn’t that just equating sex with gender and buying into the patriarchy?
  • Look son, I understand you identify as your birth sex, but why can’t you just transition to being a butch lesbian?
  • Isn’t it a bit selfish to go around claiming you’re really your birth sex and expect us all to just go along with it?
  • You may think you’re a woman because you’re XX, but I think of you as male, and you need to respect my beliefs.
  • But if we let cis men use the men’s room, what’s to stop one of them from raping your children!?!?
  • Son, you say that you’re a boy, but I think you’re a bit too young to be making that decision.
  • Honey, I know you think you want to remain male, but are you sure this isn’t just a mid-life crisis?
  • WOW! You’re so SHORT! Wish I was SHORT! Why do you want me to stop mentioning it? It’s a GOOD thing to be that SHORT!
  • You must be SO BRAVE to go through menstruation every month. It must be so hard. I really admire your courage!!!
  • You have gonads? And grow gametes inside your genitals? I’m sorry, but that’s just gross and unnatural.
  • BREAKING NEWS: WOMAN GETS PREGNANT!!! “What’s this world coming to?”
  • …Oh, it was just a CIS woman who got a pregnant. Not a real woman. Pssh. That’s not news
