Anonymous asked: Oh my God what the fuck is wrong with you, you think you can excuse transphobia with your statistics? It doesn't fucking matter if you're not very likely to encounter a trans person to fuck- cissexism still upholds the idea that it is 'normal' to expect a certain set of genitalia. And it's fucking stupid that people say "I'm attracted to dicks" because lol you can't see them when experiencing primary sexual attraction. And sex IS a social construct it doesn't need to be applied to humans.
*puts head down slowly*
Sex is a thing across a basically every species that reproduces sexually, including humans. Thus, sex is biological fact with biological consequences like certain organs. like the fact that people are biologically one sex might can have different health problems. (endometriosis, prostate cancer, etc).
… you ARE aware that if more than 97% of the population are coming with a certain set genitalia when they present their gender a certain way is exactly what ‘the norm’ means. It means ‘the majority of things with a certain margin of variance’.
And no, telling someone that you don’t want their genitalia on/in/near you is not transphobia. Let us assume a scenario. Let us assume you’re a lesbian woman of whatever physical configuration. You’re going out, you meet a nice chick, you decide to head home and get naked for some consensual horizontal fun times. You’re home, the clothes come off, suddenly there’s dick where you didn’t expect one to be.
The transphobic reaction now would be to freak out and call the other person names. I believe ‘trap’ is one commonly used? That’s a transphobic reaction, when you degrade someone because of who they are.
There’s also the other reaction, where you politely tell the other person that sorry you’re nice and everything, but this is a strictly dick-free bedroom and yeah this isn’t going to work, sorry can you please leave? (or leave if you went to their place instead of yours).
The first reaction is transphobic bullshit but not because consent is revoked but because the person doing so is degrading the other person in a horrible way for their gender identity. The second reaction is acceptable because everyone can withdraw consent at any point for any reason and surprise, nobody is required to find every person and every body attractive. Again, guilt tripping people into sex is an incredible shitty move and the fact that people are defending the ‘but you must if you want to be a good person!’ mindset boggles me.
