For the record, in case you didn’t notice, I am also black and queer (though not physically disabled). If you don’t have a problem with being called a “crippled nigger faggot,” so be it. I don’t have to accept that kind of language from anyone. And I neither need nor want a cis person’s opinion of how I can “help” myself or my community, nor what we should do to earn the same respect that cis people take for granted.

You might think that you’re helping, but you’re seriously not doing me or any other trans people any favors. I will not respond to you further.
