The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist

phoenixhobbit:

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.

TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

Puberty blockers help make trans teens into happier young adults, study finds

gaywrites:

Transgender youth who take puberty-delaying hormone treatments are more likely to be happier when they fully transition, according to a new study.

The study found that starting on hormone replacements around age 14 resulted in better mental health for trans youth, and that they had an easier time transitioning into their lived and true gender identity later on.

“The first thing this study shows is that transgender young people, with appropriate treatment, can function at the same psychological level as the rest of the population,” Jenifer McGuire, co-author of the study, told BuzzFeed News. “They have the same distribution as everyone else when they’re treated properly.”

The Dutch study, which involved 22 transgender men and 33 transgender women, found that because of the early hormone treatment, the participants ultimately had no more emotional distress, anxiety, or issues with body image than their peers in the general population after they had transitioned. They also required less gender reassignment surgery, as physical characteristics that develop during puberty were suppressed.

Studies like this are so, so important because they add another layer of credibility to the work we already know is important. We know one of the ways to help trans youth become their true selves as happily and healthily as possible, and the research clearly shows that we should keep doing it.

Cathy Brennan's self hate

lapetitesirena:

Sometimes I have the impression that Cathy Brennan (the TERF icon) actually in the deepest place of her heart is a frustrated trans guy full of self hate and internalized transphobia.

I guess that probably she has always felt bad about herself, her designated gender and about the gender roles…

Homens e suas mulheres-troféu

lapetitesirena:

Homens cis em sua maioria só namoram mulheres porque dá status.
Eles namoram com a guria X ou Y pra impressionar outros homens e mostrar a guria que ele tá comendo.

Eu percebi isso vendo o comportamento dos homens hetero com as trans. Eles só querem sexo sem compromisso, justamente porque trans…

Uma representa uma mulher trans com transfobia internalizada, ou seja, uma mulher trans transfóbica e outra um homem cis cross dresser transfóbico.
