Elsewhere in the comments, I see kindred spirits of my former Queer family-of-choice, those who rejected my transition and shunned me.

You cannot logically demand equal rights for Women throughout the 60s and 70s, marching and chanting "Biology Is Not Destiny!" then do a complete 180 and profess the exact opposite because you irrationally feel threatened by Trans and Gender Non-Conforming people advocating for their rights. Our freedom does not take anything from you.

Thank you so much for writing this. Like many folks, I learned to deal with these unavoidable aggressions by White and certain Model Minorities they reward with a provisional degree of White privilege.

What always catches me off guard are the insane number of other Black people who say and do the exact same things while at the same time questioning the authenticity of my Black identity.

Absolutely soul-killing.
