OMG REBLOG THIS & LOOK AT UR BLOG ITS COMPLETELY DIFERENT
I was expecting porn to show up on my blog but it’s not thank god
Very, very rarely am I infuriated by news articles as much as I am by this one.
So, as I sometimes do when I’m bored, this morning at school I logged onto CNN whilst in Computer class. I saw, and clicked on, a heart-touching story about a young transgender girl from Colorado - six years old - who had been barred access to her school’s girl bathroom, because ‘his (the school referred to her by her physical anatomy) genitalia would make other girls uncomfortable’. Her parents were, and are, fighting a legal battle for her to be allowed access.
I thought it was about the sweetest story I had ever heard, and such a tragedy that she wouldn’t be allowed to use the lavatory she desired. I thought that, because CNN’s commentators are usually quite Liberal, there would be a massive outburst of support in her favor.
Man, was I wrong.
Thousands of comments have been made on the article, such as the one shown in the picture, displaying such offensive, hurtful things about transgendered children, comparing their desire to be a different gender to children pretending to be dogs, superheroes, snobby royalty, or astronauts. Comments saying that all people should follow the genitalia they were given. All of these with dozens, hundreds, thousands, of upvotes. And any comments saying that there was nothing wrong with the girl almost always had 50% or more downvotes for every upvote.
I have three or four trans friends, and to them, there is no question who they are. It’s not pretend, it’s not a call for attention. It’s a simple, “I have a Penis/Vagina, and I am a Girl/Guy (respectively).” It’s a simple fucking concept for me to be used to, and it sickens me that others can’t have the fucking common courtesy to refer to people the way they would prefer.
CNN, step up your moderating game, please. Don’t let these assholes say such hurtful things.
Fandoms of tumblr…I know that this has nothing to do with any of you, but…please. Reblog. Spread the word.
Reblog this like wildfire, guys. No little girl should be subjected to both descrimination in school AND world-wide bullying.
No child, period, should ever have to feel that way or face such things.
Particularly haunting for me, because she looks a lot like me as a child.
And my faith in humanity crumbles a little
Furthermore you also have the right to an opinion Christopher Jones, but within that right comes the same right to be told you are an asshole. There is an immense difference between believing yourself to be astronaut even though you are not and being a girl. An Astronaut must pass extreme tests to measure there capability, they must have a certain stamina for build for lack of gravitational force, and they must be extremely good mathematical as all of these things are necessary requirements. Because of these things, not everyone can be an astronaut in reality because it is an occupation. Key word here Jones. And I think you know that the purpose of an occupation is to benefit society as a whole. That is the very definition of occupation. Being one gender or another or no gender at all is what is known as lifestyle, all people have a lifestyle and no two people have the same lifestyle. Lifestyles are designed to only effect the people who have them and benefit only them because it determines how they chose to live. If a boy decides that he would rather wear makeup or dresses or just become a girl because it makes them happy and comfortable, that is there choice of a lifestyle. Ultimately it comes down to this, you cannot be an astronaut because you think you are a great one because of legitimate lack of benefit to a society, but you can chose to be a girl or a boy or whatever you please because it only effects you and your lifestyle. Telling someone else how to live their lives and who they are just makes you a giant prick, I’d go so far as to say your like a moderate Hitler in that respect, and I hope that you and all of those people who liked your comment get what’s coming to you.
I know that most of my followers, like me, are fandom-related blogs. However, I am asking you, please reblog this. I was once engaged to a transman, so I know the struggles of transgendered people. And for a child, a six year old child, to be the target of such disgusting remarks is unacceptable. Please, please, I am begging you, reblog this.
