Yeah, I really didn't think these people existed in real life before that either but they definitely do. Even in a college at a state as conservative as mine, apparently...
I guess they'll be anywhere, when you give them a space like that.
Most of the trans-identifying folk seemed like your typical Tumblrina stereotype - hair dyed in unnatural colors, short-cut hair, flashy/"tumblr aesthetic" clothes, into anime, etc. Alot of the gay men were extremely nice and chill, though. I had joined the music caucus they made, and although I felt kind of awkward since most of them were from the caucus for gay men, and it was just me and like two other girls, they were very accepting and fun to be around. I almost became friends with some of them, but then I was kicked out from the whole club shortly after, because of those other people.
Oh, I forgot to mention that this whole thing actually started because I called another trans girl I was talking to "dude" in a text. She flipped out on me, saying I "should never call a trans girl that". Yeah, I got called transmisogynistic by her because of that. I've treated "dude" like a gender-neutral term now for the longest time and called alot of people that, regardless of gender. One of my closest friends has identified as non-binary and we call eachother "dude".
I apologized and said I wouldn't call her that, but expressed disagreement with how she said it's harmful to all trans women and she said I was banned from her caucus. (That funnily enough, I had never been apart of in the first place. lmao) She would try to school me on Bulgaria, calling it "fascist", like she knew so much better about it. I told her we were actually one of the only Eastern European countries to offer refuge to Jews. (Can read about it here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...93f_story.html
These people really try to speak over you about everything...Even your own country. ffs
