One of my co-workers bought the SDCC Exclusive Bronze Mass Effect Alliance Cruiser by mistake (2 of them I think, since she mentioned it as a $120 mistake) at SDCC due to mis-communication of what a family member wanted. Would anyone be interested in buying it off of her so she can re-coup the cost? I’d be shipping or delivering it to you.
Michelle Obama being called the t slur is just another addition to the pattern of cis black women being called the slur as a way to further strip them of womanhood and i feel like no one is talking about this? Its not enough to say cis women. We have to acknowledge the racial factor here and how this literally always happens to black girls — ciara, wendy, teyana, etc.
Can we just discuss how misogynoir and transmisogyny are are being used hand in hand here? Its like shit wrapped in a layer of more shit.
And again, its really not good enough to stop analyzing this at cis women being called the slur, its disproportionately cis black women and in this case by a white hoe.
Very true, this phenomenon is definitely racialized. Transmisogyny in general is often disproportionately aimed at black trans women. I would like to say though, that being called a tr*nny is not exactly a way to “strip” a woman of her womanhood or her femininity, but rather a way to suggest that she is of an unfavorable type of femininity, that her type of womanhood is unacceptable. This distinction is important, because it seems transmisogynistic to enforce the belief that “tr*nnies” aren’t women by using that wording exactly.
