Oh, wait. I forgot. Those people have actual problems.
I’m from a “third world country” and to add to that I’m from a very conservative predominantly Muslim country. I’m about to drop a BOMB SHELL on you, bro.
There are gay people. There are genderqueer people. There are trans* people. But they can’t be open about it for the most part because they may even be shunned by their own family. We are all products of our society and there is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with exploring yourself and your feelings and your identity.
If it’s safe and you can share it why the fuck not? Because if someone has the audacity to put a name to their identity then we can’t deal with poverty or racism?
No shut up.
Also here are some more fun facts:
- We have internet!
- We have sex!
- I had a pet cat!
- I was a specialized education teacher! (And I’m a woman! WHAT!)
- We had feminism!
- We had hardcore and punk and rap shows/Music scene!
- Cable TV!
- Parks and playgrounds!
- Medical care!
- Cell phones!
- ALL THIS AND MUCH MUCH MORE.
All this and I’m still worried about silly things like racism, sexism and cissexism! And I still think you’re ridiculous and have made absolutely zero points!
I’m sorry you think we’re too primitive to know about gender identity.
