regarding t slur/ question abt reclamation 

okay so there's something i'm not quite clear on & have seen many differing opinions about:

is it okay for any trans people to reclaim the t slur or is it only for trans women/ transfems to reclaim?

personally the word doesn't resonate with me & i don't have the desire to use it, but i just wondered what folks think about whether:

a) this is a language gatekeeping situation or

b) there are legitimate reasons why only some trans people should use it

At the same time, I just want to exist really. I do not have the energy at any point in my life to be an activist. I just want to be able to exist fairly peacefully. And I just don’t feel like that’s what happening when I am holding off most of my comments just to avoid having to justify myself for one hour, while really, we could have both our opinion on the matter and do whatever we want. But somehow I have to be lectured because RESPECT

I feel almost gaslit in a way, where clearly it’s a lot easier for cishet people to accept right-winged stances because they can ignore whatever conservative takes they have on LGBT people if they want to whilst we queer people do not have a choice.

It annoys me that people paint the capacity to ignore or respect any political stance as emotional maturity whilst this is clearly highly dependant on our individual emotional capacity AND our privilege. It also really annoys me that I keep being painted as if i viewed every person that disagrees with me as a bad nazi.

Like, the conversation was about talking shit about people whose political stances we don’t agree with. My point of view is that if you think someone’s stance is shit and harmful to people, you don’t have to respect that and be friend with that person. The original comment was basically saying that people that can debate and discuss respectfully people with different political opinions = good people.

i… i don’t really know where to stand like anywhere. I feel like I need to watch closely everything I say with most of my pals and it’s exhausting, and the moment where I point out something, I just end up having justify and talk for hours to explain my position and i still won’t get any sort of support, reassurance or agreement. I’m just left being painted like a villain whilst I think my positions are fair

a bit too much thoughts at the moment. I am not sure where my place in the world is.

I had a difficult and annoying conversation with a pal recently and I am still processing it (about politics). I feel like I am too political aware to feel comfortable around most white dyacishet people and I don’t feel sufficiently political aware to hang out with most queer people
