saying, “why be cis when you can be trans,” just completely takes away the seriousness of this movement. that phrase makes it sound like this really is just a trend and that people put on these labels just to be cool. i am completely for pride when it comes to being trans, but this is not pride. this is making our movement seem like a bunch of kids who just want to be cool. people are going to see us like even more of a joke when this phrase is being spread.
