Everyone Is A Transphobe

Except maybe

The older, elder trans folk

The ones who have survived

All of this shit and more

Everyone who is younger than those

Is a transphobe, myself included !

Please stop being part of the problem

By denying and insisting —

Everyone feels they aren’t

Everyone feels they are above that

And look around— we’re all

Floating, high above everything,

Unable to touch the ground.

A culture of exceptional exceptionalists

People are so afraid of being labeled

“Phobe” that they don’t even realize

That they are running away from

Trans people, altogether

Just to avoid an offense that is

Somewhat inevitable.

Fucking have some backbone

Work through the discomfort, the way

That one trans person you know has been

Forced to feel uncomfortable
