I don’t care if I lose a thousand followers overnight, but if you think “tranny” or “shemale” are remotely acceptable ways to refer to a transgender person, please unfollow me.

The number of notes on this pleases both my ego and my fragile faith in humanity.

Adding on, “extra hole boy”, or “pussy boy” are equally abominable ways to refer to trans men.

Dont use Shim, shehe/heshe, chick with a dick d*ckgirl or c*ntboy either

and if you use “it” to dehumanize any trans person i will personally come to your house, break down your door, and piss on everything you own

‘Sissy’ and ‘trap’ are also utterly reprehensible…

Also if you call a trans woman futa I will kick your fucking teeth in

Please yes, im fucking sick of people looking at and consuming futinari culture and think that’s what we are

is it okay for a person who is not trans to reblog this?

Given the fact this is a legit list of words that trans people don’t want to be called/don’t want to hear, I hereby decree this post may be reblogged by everyone who wants to spread the word that these words are NOT ACCEPTABLE.

As somebody who literally had to tell one friend that “tranny” is a slur and “fem-boy” is not what you call a trans woman, I agree with this hardcore

Because Jesus!  Remember Rule #5: don’t do it like they do it in porn.

Good thing to call a “trans woman?”  A woman.  Great thing to call a “trans man?”  How about a man?

The only people really who really need to know at all, let alone get more specific, are an individual’s individual partners.  

More, um, colorful “gender bender” terms are seriously not necessary.

Note: Might want to add “gender bender” to the list of gender-anxious bullshit terms.

Note: No, don’t use those terms even if you know a trans person who uses them.  Just as being a hillbilly doesn’t inoculate me from perpetuating inherited or internalized anti-hillbilly bias, being trans doesn’t inoculate one from perpetuating inherited or internalized anti-trans bias either.
