TW: TRANSPHOBIC BOUGIE GAYBIES, THE PLIGHT OF THE QUEER RIGHTS MOVEMENT. THANKS HRC.
I love how when I bash on cis people everyone assumes I’m trans*.
Call me a tranny all you want, hunty. I’m just radqueer as fuck.
Assimilationism is the act of encouraging minority groups to become similar to elite groups. In the context of heternormativity/heterosexism, it is the act of encouraging gay, bisexual, pansexual, and otherwise not-straight folks to be more like dominant straight culture in various ways. Examples of hetero-assimilationist concepts and movements are the push for gay marriage, the push for the repeal of DADT, the butch/femme dichotomy, and the top/bottom dichotomy (though there are many more). Someone who supports hetero-assimilationism and/or actively seeks to be more like the dominant straight narrative is a hetero-assimiliationist. Examples of hetero-assimilationist organizations are the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), GLAAD, GLSEN, and most other mainstream LGBT organizations. Examples of anti-assimilationism and/or anti-assimilationists are BASH BACK and That’s Revolting! edited by Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore. The major defining quality between LGBT/LGBTQ movements and radical queer movements is the desire to assimilate.
- “Hetero-assimilationists are looking to be accepted by the elite by conforming to their moral standards of right and wrong.”
- “I don’t (or do) support hetero-assimilationism.”
cis - Short for cisgender; someone who identifies as the sex/gender they were assigned at birth.
het - Short for heterosexual; someone who is typically attracted exclusively to people who identify as the sex/gender opposite their own.
Cishet - Short for cisgender heterosexual.
It’s really not that hard to understand, it’s a pretty necessary clarification in the discourse of all things queer (And not queer), and it’s certainly not rude.
And to any whiny cishets that think it is, well… I don’t exactly have any fucks to give about your precious feels. Oops.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog do not necessarily represent the queer population as a whole. It’s not my responsibility to portray the image that all queer people will or should be viewed in, nor is it anyone, and quite frankly you’re a fucking dumb shit if you think my disdain for heteronormal societies harm or represent entire queer populations.
Also that’s such bullshit logic because what, if I’m nice to whiny cishets then are people just going to assume that all queer people like shitty cishets? No. Go away and take Lana Del Rey and Lady Gaga with you, ya dumb bougie gay.
Yeah I am not a fan of this at all. This lady is a goddamn cracker.
Remember when Tumblr was all upset about Die Cis Scum and now it’s all whiny about heterophobia like “Boohoo it’s so hard being this privileged stop it you’re hurting my delicate cishet feelings! It’s oppressing me! You dumb tranny faggots don’t know how hard we have it!”
omg whiny cis people citing me in their papers about how hard it is to be cis I’m so famous now.
actually my friend my paper is about the invention of the term “cis-” and how it is treated in academia and in social media, and how its becoming a synonym for transphobia instead of fulfilling it’s actual intended purpose of simply being a descriptor. i mentioned your comment as an example of the radical standpoint
I love when people get into arguments about queer theory with me and think they can get away with calling me their friend, condescending or not. Like no, we’re definitely not friends.
Also, the fact of the matter is that yes, because we live in a heteronormal and cis-centric society, to be cis is to be inherently transphobic, and if you have a problem with that, you need to stop policing queer frustrations and start policing the people who uphold a transphobic society.
Your paper doesn’t sound too great. Maybe it’s time you actually start reading up on queer theory and societal issues instead of analyzing everything at surface level.
