Reminder: You’re not immune to other forms of privelege just because you’re in a marginalized community.
I still see anti-bi and anti-trans attitudes, erasure, and worse all the fucking time even in many “good” queer communities.
Seeing these attitudes and behaviors crop up in communities where I’m meant to feel safe has left me hurt and jaded just as much as in non-queer-exclusive communities and it fucking sucks.
@Minalien and i see a hell of a lot of ableism in "good" queer+trans communities >.> and a hell of a lot of queermisia in disability communities <.<
@kit I see similar behaviors frequently too, and it pisses me off so much. “You -know- what it’s like experiencing similar behavior so why the hell are you perpetuating it?” x___x
Also, thank you for introducing the -misia suffix! I’d learned recently that “-phobia” in those contexts was problematic (that’s an area of my own privilege and behavior I’m working to be more conscious of), and wasn’t aware of a suffix it could be replaced with (hence the use of the anti- prefix). ^_^
@Minalien ah yr welcome. i only found out about it a few months ago, for a long time i was feeling like "well maybe it is but also maybe it's necessary?" bc anti-x doesn't always exactly fit (esp in what i would see called whorephobia a lot, since i used to do camgirl stuff regularly) but. yeah now i have a pretty easy drop-in replacement
