Afternoon Inqueery

AI: Bad Reactions

It’s common, when people come out either as queer or as trans* to someone, to get cissexist/transphobic/homophobic reactions.

But when those come from supposedly well-informed people (as in “aren’t you just reinforcing the sex-gender binary?” from so-called feminists) that you love and/or care about, things get a bit more complicated.

How do you react to/answer transphobic/cissexist questions from people in your life that you care about, when you come out to them?

The Afternoon Inqueery (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Queereka community. Look for it to appear on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, at 3pm ET.

This Sunday’s AI was suggested by Yessenia.
