The Lesbian Community and the Trouble with Trans(men)
We didnt foresee how testosterone would change them internally; we didnt foresee like their breast, their womanness and lesbianness would also be removed and incinerated from their being, we didnt foresee how the acquiring of male privilege would change them so, we didnt foresee how testosterone and male privilege would lead them to sexually objectify us, we didnt foresee they would bring privileged straight women into our mix, we didnt foresee them urging others in our mix onto transition, we didn't foresee them sleeping with men while still demanding access to our community, we didnt foresee a whole lot of things.
Young lesbians everywhere are suffering, lost and without a community because we failed to keep our community safe from men, any man or females calling themselves men. We have been shamed, threatened with violence and rape and screamed at for "transphobia" whenever we spoke up and declared ourselves Lesbians. Lesbian has become a dirty word, and those of us who refuse to "queer" ourselves by standing our lesbian ground, dirty with it.
We have a future to create, what would you like to see change for lesbians/the lesbian community? And what are you prepared to do to make those changes happen?
