That you are repeatedly subjected to such blatant transmisogyny in a major U.S. city illustrates how our so-called “transgender tipping point” has not improved quality of life for all but the most privileged (wealthy, cis-passing) trans people. I have personally been against all use of the “t” word, including by transmasculine folks who are not the primary target of that language, and I agree that experiences like yours need to be heard and understood in any reclaiming discussion.
