no i dont want to be a billionaire to live a lavish lifestyle i want to be a billionaire to be financially secure and have enough money to give people things and support charities and fund kickstarters and leave hundred dollar tips
…wanting to be a billionaire just to give people things is like wanting to be a master thief just to be able to give people back a few of the things you stole from them
This is a response to two posts - this one and this one Let’s talk about this seriously. Let’s look at the facts. Many people on this site would have you believe that trans women are infinitely more…
So as I was looking through this I realized something. Due to how the data is presented by percentages it hides the actual disparity at work.
Due there being 1.7x as many trans woman respondents as trans men percent differences of as little as 10% actually make a huge difference.
For example on the Impediments to Staying in school section 20% of trans women and 14% of trans men left to due to harassment. That doesn’t sound like a lot right? Well what happens when we multiply those percentages by the total number of participants from each category? What the numbers come out to is 675 trans woman and 294 trans men. So basically 2.3x as many trans women left school due to harassment.
Let’s take a look at loss of jobs by gender:
36% of trans women and 19% of trans men. Or in other words 1269 and 399 trans men. Meaning that among respondents trans women were fired 3.2x more than trans men.
Discrimination in hiring:
55% of trans women and 40% of trans men translates to 1939 trans women and 840 trans men. Meaning that trans women were discriminated against 2.3x more than trans men.
39% of trans women and 18% of trans men translates to 1374 trans women and 378 trans men. Meaning that trans women were denied promotions 3.6x more.
Not to mention this doesn’t even get into physical violence. All one need do is look that NCAVP reports to see that trans woman disproportionately represent victims of anti-LGBT murders. As well as being most at risk during encounters with police. This is contrasted by data such as in 2012 0 trans men being the victims of hate crime murders. Which isn’t really all that surprising since the last trans men who was murdered in the U.S. was 20 years ago. Yet almost every month without fail news of another murdered trans woman, an assaulted trans woman, a trans woman facing murder charges for defending herself, and/or various other forms of violence crosses my dash.
Another problem with this study is it doesn’t account for discrepancies in the severity of violence as well as for variables like race and class.
Basically don’t let the numbers confuse you.
did yall hear about the black man who was stopped by a cop at a gas station and the cop made him get out of his car and asked him to get his license and when he went back into the car to get his license the fucking cop shot him???????? like the dude was like “why the fuck are you shooting me” and the cop says “you put your head back into the car” and he says “uh yeah to get my liCENSE??? THAT YOU ASKED FOR” like cops are literally looking for any excuse to kill us
For all the people thinking I’m making this shit up, here’s a fucking link. Also: fuck you for immediately assuming that this Couldn’t Possibly Be True
treating anything that is ‘rebellion’ or ‘protest’ as Good is like, a mistake that gets made in your first day of radical politics. i would hope people would no longer be clinging to this ‘understanding’ but, here we are
if u are a cis girl, here are some things not to say to trans girls or transfeminine ppl

- you have better legs than I do!

these compliments are just a way the disguise your shock at the femininity of “fake” women, compared to you, a “real” woman. stop.
