queer teenage girls have to look out for each other because who the fuck else is going to???????
The “queer teenage girls” bit is unnecessary. “People” would have sufficed.
prime example of people not giving a shit about queer teenage girls lmao
cis people get pronouns. trans people get preferred pronouns.
cis people get a gender. trans people get to identify as a gender.
these are microaggressions designed to undermine and invalidate who we know ourselves to be, and to reinforce the perceived inauthenticity of trans people.
this is always harmful, and for some, primarily trans feminine people and esp trans feminine poc, it can be dangerous or deadly.
tbh dress codes are fine as long as they are about looking professional and appropriate for a learning/working environment and not about ‘don’t distract the boys’ and slut-shaming, and as long as it’s enforced equally for all genders
it is the sexist attitude about it that needs to be changed, not the fact that there *is* such a thing as dress codes
