i can’t imagine how hard it must have been struggling with gender shit back when physical transition was a total impossibility, even theoretically

we have a history. we have existed in every culture of the world at every moment of human history. cis institutions have tried to suppress this history or claim it as their own but it is not theirs. it is ours, and always will be. we must uncover and reclaim more of our history, and we must make more ourselves
I like to use the metaphor of dropping a brick on someone’s foot. In most cases, it’s going to be clear it’s an accident. If someone is wearing steel toe boots, you might laugh it off, no harm no foul. If they are wearing regular shoes, there’s probably going to be pain, maybe a little maybe a lot, some hoping around on one foot, some cursing. They might know it’s an accident but still be pretty pissed off. If they’re barefoot, that might cause some serious damage, they may need someone to help them and they might be debilitated for the next couple days. No amount of “I’m sorry” or “I didn’t mean to” can make it not have happened, but most people can still recognize an accident and not hold a grudge.
But if you make a habit of dropping bricks on peoples feet, they might begin to wonder what’s up. Perhaps they’ll never take their shoes off around you. Perhaps they’ll start avoiding you altogether because it’s just not worth the risk. Perhaps they’ll think that on some level you’re doing it on purpose. “I mean, wtf, none of my other friends drop bricks on my feet, but this one friend has done it 3 times now - what the hell is going on?”
Good analogy remains good.
