beast_pikachu So I was Tweezeldee for an Alice and Wonderland musical for planet rehab. I think I look pretty good, considering my costume makes me a borderline tranny. The other picture is of Tweezeldumb. #Alice #wonderland #aliceandwonderland #funny #cute #cool #tweedle #tweedledee #tweedledumb #red #costume #musical 2d
  •   dtrain2008 I've heard a transsexual say I'm a tranny before though @jackiejacquejack 2d
  •   jackiejacquejack @dtrain2008 I've heard black people refer to themselves by the N word before. People in the community can decide to use or reclaim the word however they please, but that doesn't erase the history behind it or make it any less harmful when you say it. Also, the opinion of one member of the community doesn't necessarily reflect the majority! Often, it's on a person to person basis! If one trans person tells you they are not offended by the word and gives you clearance to use it around them, then by all means! But just because one person says you can use it around them doesn't mean it won't hurt anybody else. It's just a matter of being aware and respectful! As cis people, we don't get to decide something that pertains to the trans community. Think of it like you might the term 'wetback'. You might not be offended by it, and even may find it laughable, but does that make it invalid if someone else is hurt by it? Does that change the fact that its origin is to insult? It's just about being mindful and respectful. Sorry for the paragraph! 2d
  •   dtrain2008 I guess I thought of it more as a short term of something like calling a fraternity a frat more along those lines and wetback and the N word those are slurs that aren't short for anything and people have been killed while being called those things. I highly doubt that someone who's so ignorant as to kill someone for being a transsexual would call them a tranny while they kill them they'd probably call them Faggot or something of that sort so idk seems different to me. I get where you draw the similarities but it's different because the kind of crimes that are committed while people are using the other slurs vs tranny now fag I will completely agree obviously a slur and falls right in with the other two 2d
  •   jackiejacquejack @dtrain2008 Like I said, cis people don't get to decide things on behalf of the trans community. I didn't draw the line and decide whether or not the word was okay! I can see where you define differences between it and other slurs, but that doesn't change the fact that it's not a word that's been used in a respectful way! People don't say it when they're trying to be nice. Like I said, even here it's used as a micro aggression. Also, I'm not sure where you got the impression that trans people aren't murdered for being trans? Because they are, all the time. Trans Day of Remembrance is a thing. And yes, trans women are called fags, too. But they're also called trannies, and it's not meant with respect. What's more is that trans youth have an extremely high suicide rate because of all the bigotry, oppression, and abuse they deal with. Conversion therapy is still legal, and yet another trans person had to die for the president to consider making it illegal! So no, it's not an okay word to use, it's not different from other slurs, and no, I didn't decide that. If anything, every transphobic person who used it to insult trans people decided that. Be aware, be kind, and be mindful of the community. It's their place to decide what is and isn't a slur towards them, and not the place of cis people like you or I to argue that. 1d
  •   dtrain2008 I clearly said that trans people get killed I just said I doubt they are being called tranies while they are killing them. I think the power behind the N word or wetback is in the kind of terrible acts that are being committed while they, rape a woman and call her a N word or hang a man in front of his family and call him a N word. I never heard of it being a slur before you saying it was so why are you the voice on it if I told you that calling an African American black was a slur you'd probably disagree and have a discussion same way I'm doing here Jackie there's no need to get so aggressive about the whole thing. To be quite honest though I think it's wrong what a majority of trans do, it seems a bit like a scam artist passing yourself off as a woman to the opposite sex and often times not revealing who they are or what they are until the damage is done? Honestly I'm not trying to be offensive I just don't mind a discussion. I also think if Brandon said he looks like a total Transgender would he not have implied the same thing would it not still be being used as derogatory 1d
  •   dtrain2008 @jackiejacquejack maybe I think your argument should be not that he shouldn't say tranny but maybe he shouldnt be in transface kinda like blackface is unacceptable 1d
  •   jackiejacquejack @dtrain2008 I've said all I have to say on the matter! Interpret it how you will. 1d

kldickey14 Why do we get along so well? That's because we don't care what the world has to say. We live life day by day trying to be as happy as we can. Tough times come and we are there for each other, reminding one another that God is there in every situation #tweedledee #tweedledumb #blessed 6d
