TransFam, watch this clip cuz this is the kinda shit that will get you DEAD!
Carmen, recently you posted this comment on your personal facebook profile:
Although I do appreciate your invitation to contact your 'guy' to ask for a interview I think I have see quite enough already. Note: There are many transgender and transsexual people who feel you have done our image as a community a disservice They just have had no place to voice there opinion. The gay rags are all about pandering to your gay following and know they would lose most of there readers should they speak about the obvious. And Glaad? They will always JUMP at a opportunity to stroll the limelight on the red carpet and will spare no expense in doing so. Even at the expense of the transgender communities well being.
So no Carmen, I do not think that stunt was activism. It was you allowing yourself to be set up to satisfy your addiction to the spotlight. That behaviour is akin to the situations drug addicted homeless of our community get themselves into with some notable exceptions.
You are not homeless. You are not desperate. To my knowledge you did not need to perform this stunt to maintain your addiction. You are a selfish "tranny" who has no moral misgivings about humiliating and deceiving unsuspecting hyper macho men.
That's the shit that gets us killed.
P.S. I am not some hooty fluty college educated snob. I graduated from street university of hopelessness and majored in drug addiction, homelessness transgender prostitution. So I know the nitty gritty first hand, sweety.
I agree with the blog post: if we want to stop being exploited, if we want to stop the transphobia, we have to stop being complicit in it.
I don't think this is unique to transgender, genderqueer, and gender variant people. Last night my spouse had a rerun of the William Shatner roast on, and about half the jokes were an attempt to defame someone with homosexuality - including from George Takei.
This doesn't in any way reduce the culpability of people who misuse us - responsibility is not a zero-sum game. But we have to stop contributing to our own suffering.
Don't want to be made fun of? don't play the clown.
Don't want to be assaulted? Don't play the victim.
Don't want to be killed "in self defense"? Don't play on "gay panic" or "trans panic".
Thank you Cindi. I couldn't have said it better.
I absolutly agree with you. I spoke up & stated how wrong it was and pointed out that there was no possible "educational" learning & I was completly slammed with insults and had tweets taken out of context to friend that pertained to us watching RuPaul, who happens to be a drag queen that I love like a sister. I might be a straight woman, but I have sat in the hospital with said friend because he was beaten up because a man percieved him as a threat to his hetrosexuality. I don't know too much about the transgender community but those that I have interacted with in the last few have been hateful and makes me want to avoid any issue. I felt that with the stunts & her other stunts have only been about media attention. I think what people don't always understand is that I may not always agree with the choices that people mak, but I will always support the freedom to make that choice. I'm not a bigot, I'm not ignorent but I excersice right to state what I am thinking in a unhateful manner. I can honestly say that those that I've delt with the last view days are the reason why people who don't understand or know about the transgender community have a negative view about them. And the stunt that Carmen pulled only feeds the fear that many people have.
