my ex best friend turned into an abusive PRICK and used this on me whenever i called her out on her transphobia. she didn't want me to grow as a person and didn't understand my gender AT ALL even though it's pretty simple, i'm a boy. apparently it 'confused the fuck out of her' whenever i wore skirts and/or makeup. like REALLY. boys can't wear makeup (EVEN THOUGH i'm considering being a MAKEUP ARTIST AS A CAREER)? boys can't wear cute skirts?
According to her, every trans male should get the surgeries (regardless if he's ok w his boobs and genitals).
and every time i called her out on how much all of that ^ hurt my feelings, she'd turn it around on herself, victimize herself, and get offended even though i was the one being emotionally abused and offended justifiably.
sorry for the rant but my closing sentence is that cis people are garbage.
Not to be off, I mean im a member of at least 4 different minorities and ive had my fair share of offensive material aimed at me and abuse both physical and verbal but whenever someone talks about being offended I always bring up Stephen Frys quote
“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what.” ― Stephen Fry
