How can I be a cis ally? I feel like every time I think I'm there I'm always told only trans people can determine that. Any advice?

transenbyond:

sorta making this a general post
sorry for highjacking your ask anon

how to be a cis ally

  • 1. always listen, rarely speak (in reference to trans issues)

my reasoning for this is simply because if you identify as cis you can only have a limited understanding of the context of trans/nb issues.
basically your identity creates sort of a living version of putting on sunglasses.
you are perpetually shaded from the experiences that dont systematically affect your life aka privilege. therefor you will not be able to make statements about experiences that you dont live

as far as learning about these issues keep in mind that you’re not separate from the oppressing class, so while it may seem easy to just ask a trans or nb person you should do research before considering that. especially since it isn’t entirely polite to ask someone to be a speaker on the behalf of all trans folk (although i do personally enjoy talking about it as long as it’s with ears open and genuine compassion)

  • 2. use your position to make call outs

lord knows this world needs more people willing to call out, and change their own transphobia
this can include:
- reporting trans harassment (like on social media)
- be critical of your own understanding of trans issues
- use gender neutral language when necessary (basically avoid gendering something and someone off the bat)
- politely ask someone’s pronouns and defend them
- challenge casual and blatant cissexism in language
- speak out against slurs, stigma, and erasure
- just always be conscious of transphobia

there are many more things but i honestly don’t have the spoons for it at this moment sorry

  • 3. get informed

- TransWhat? Allyship: first steps
- mogai archive: gender, and pronouns
- Biologist Anne Fausto-Sterling’s book Sexing the Body
- Learn about truscum and terfs and how they damage trans and nonbinary individuals

honestly i don’t want to push posting this anon off for another day i’m probably sorta rushing it but i’m just exhausted

(followers please let me know if any information or resources that i provided are problematic or anything else that i should add to this - so anon, keep your eye out for changing information)

"Your highness" is gender neutral.

So you know, if you’re ever confused about my pronouns.

That’ll work.

alternatively, “your majesty,” “my liege,” and “supreme overlord”

please note that “your grace” is also acceptable

But that’s because the pronoun in use is “you”

You only say “Your ___” when addressing the person.

Otherwise you still need to include a gendered pronoun (or a gender neutral pronoun).

Example: Her Majesty the Queen.

If the Queen used they pronouns we would say “Their Majesty the Queen” (or maybe some sort of gender-neutral equivalent to Queen I dunno).

My dad would tell me that when we were little and people would say to him “wow, four daughters, that’s a lot of weddings to pay for” (because traditionally the bride’s family would pay for the wedding), my dad would respond with “well, we’re hoping at least one of them will be gay so we can split the cost with the other bride’s family”
He said people never knew how to respond

"tea is just leaf water!" "yeah well coffee is just bean water!" wow, it’s. it’s like everything is made of things. this door is just wood rectangle. this poster is just ink paper. this lemonade is just lemon water. wow, it’s like you can combine ingredients to make things that are more enjoyable than the initial parts of the equation. sure is a magical world we live in
