Trans people shouldn't *have* to be brave.

Trans people shouldn't *have* to be radical.

Making your entire existence a protest is *exhausting* for many, and not tenable for many more.

It should just okay to be trans.

But society is hostile to us, so I have no choice but to be radical about my own identity.

I would rather expend my energy on other problems, like helping others, rather than expending it on something that shouldn't be up for negotiation.


@Elizafox Asserting your identity is always going to be radical. Capitalist society doesn't want people to have an identity. Drones don't have names.
But of course throwing gender and/or sex into the thing puts you at the sharp end, even then. That's so unfair.
