I want to do something for International Down With Cis Day, but ideas fail me. Every year since I started at FtB has gotten materially worse for trans rights and the well-being and safety of trans lives. I hold the shitbird governor of Texas as especially emblematic of the whole situation – blatantly using open bigotry to score political points, bible bashing while using rhetoric generously provided by terfs, pushing for the worst anti-LGBT policies this side of China or Iran.
So I think, meme his ass. Political cartoon like this was 1922. But nothing comes to mind except depictions of him on the receiving end of terrible violence – you know, madame guillotine putting in an appearance, somebody setting him on fire and kicking him off a cliff, etc. Not funny, not a good look.
Not bad, but still feels wildly inadequate to the struggle right now. We’ll see what we’ll see.
