there are people who are praising ahs for being ~inclusive~ b/c they hired a trans woman to play the role of a trans woman in a series titled “freak show” when (a) they were only looking for a man to play this role and (b) she had to audition as a dude to get it. they only got a trans woman to play the role of a trans woman by accident and against their best efforts, you can stop lauding them as progressive for calling us freaks now.
It’s actually really scary to me how guys have no problem hitting on/harassing girls when girls are alone but will leave them alone when they see them with their significant other. Because they respect you more as another mans property than they respect you as a human.
taylor can’t post this to her own blog because of safety reasons but if you live in southern NH / northern mass usa and are able to house a trans girl please contact her at http://goldenwebs.tumblr.com/ (OFF ANON) and if you can’t please signal boost this post or pass it on to someone who possibly can
