go to bed this is over
this is what pisses me off about people who make transphobic jokes: to them, it was a joke. Even when they’ve been called out for it and told to apologise it’s just a big “hassle”. And when it’s over, to them, it’s over, a the joke is over, and people have finished calling them out.
but the people who are affected by it? It. fucking. lasts. The Trans dude uersace harassed is going to remember this for weeks to come. The trans folk who had to watch him lash out at our community and disregard our validity were hurt, too. And that pain is going to last. As much as we need it to be, we can’t just say “it’s over” and make it stop.
What’s more, the sheer irony of this response is that in simply behaving the way he and many other transphobic jokers have, he has actually *perpetuated* the idea that it’s ok. And that, in itself, is fucking horrendous.
