An average day’s worth of straight men in Amiyah Scott’s mentions. It’s one thing to dislike someone and to talk about them, but to go into their mentions?
This is so terrifying
This isn’t about disliking someone, this is transmisogyny, transmisogynoir, transophobia. This is hatred, in the strongest form. All these folks in her mentions can burn in a fire, get hit by a bus, whatever they aren’t deemed worth living to me. This is how unsafe Black Transwomen are, they can’t even exist in the comfort of their own space at home, on the internet without threats of violence, this horrific, and disgusting.
and what makes me so mad, and what’s an attitude that really needs to be fucking addressed in our community, is that so many of these men are threatening violence against her because they believe she’s trying to trick them. like this is how the media fucks with our perceptions because trans women have always been set up as a ‘trap’ to threaten the sexuality of the hetero-hypermale. they are operating within the myth that a) black women’s bodies automatically belong to black men for the pursuit of their pleasure and b) trans women’s bodies are ‘false’ and ‘deceitful’ female bodies, and by merely existing they are a threat to male heterosexuality.
trans women’s bodies are women’s bodies. women’s bodies belong to themselves. the world does not revolve around your shriveled ego and the satisfaction of your tragic libido.
^^ yes that. They’re attracted to them and their scared of it so they hate them.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ x 1000
They are attracted to her, but she was born a man. So now they are pissed off that they are questioning their own sexuality, but directing that anger towards her.
"HOW DARE YOU, A TRANS WOMAN, MAKE ME HORNY!?"
Them niggas must be closeted to be so angry.

Rubin hurricane carter was a middleweight boxer who was wrongly convicted of murder and spent 19 years in prison before being released. He dedicated the rest of his life to freeing those, especially black men, who have been wrongly convicted by this racist system. Denzel Washington plays him in the movie “Hurricane”. Peace to Mr. Carter.

Bob Dylan made a song about him. He says nigger in it.
