i”m somewhat miffed by that white trans woman getting a settlement for being asked ‘what are you?” in a job interview
not bc i don”t think she deserves it or whatever
its just that white ppl have been asking me that fucking question ever since i can remember
in the story, she mentions that it was like a punch to the gut
this question is so mundane that it barely registers
indeed, i think it was only a few years ago that i really realized just what a shitty dehumanizing question that is
and i know that i”m not the only poc whose been asked this question over and over and over again.
i”m a bitter petty petty princex.
