liftrowlive asked: Was it really necessary to make those comments about Arin and Katie? Who says that their parents paid for their transitions or that they are rich? You don't know them so please don't make assumptions about them. I understand your intentions, but still.
You dont think it’s noteworthy that the only trans people who get to be the cute couples, who get the love and the best wishes from the “allies” of the world, are the ones who are economically and racially able to transition into Barbies and Kens? While poor, black, indigenous, and latina trans feminine people are the targets for violence that get no sympathy or support except in death on TDoR?
Look, idk exactly who paid for what or what their economic situation is. But when they’re white and get surgeries paid in their teens and all the news clips show them on boats and big ass houses, I made some assumptions. Being able to have all your transition-related medical costs paid for in your teens, especially SRS, is usually economic privilege. But, regardless, the effect is the same. When it comes to trans women, allies only care about the pretty passing skinny white ones that dont make them uncomfortable.
