This is your friendly reminder that not only did trans men, trans women, and nonbinary people exist and make contributions all the way back to ancient Sumer and recorded civilization -- but we also often had honored roles in temples and had poetry written about us.

gender policing AMAB enbies
I've met a lot of cishet dudes, and Job #1 for most of them was "protect guy and straight identity at all costs".
So why would a cishet guy pretend to be queer, or an enby? I'll tell you: he wouldn't.
So if an AMAB person says they're queer, or an enby -- they are. They're not "probably" anything else. There's no likely motive, esp. in this society.
ACAB and that goes double for Gender Police in activism, who should know better.

Article from 2017:
"The term “government shutdown” gives the public the false impression that the entire government is being shut down, when in reality, only a small percentage of the government gets shut down—and for starkly ideological reasons.
What we are really facing is a liberal government shutdown—which is to say programs designed to help the vulnerable and poor are gutted, while institutions designed to serve the rich and powerful remain unscathed."
Remember, when politics get too overwhelming to deal with at any given moment, try devoting your pent up frustration towards praxis.
Whether it's getting involved with your local Food Not Bombs chapter, making a donation, or something more ambitious, just doing something can help SO MUCH.
