(For context, this post is in response to a cis/not trans poster saying the original poster's post, which said that all cis people should apologize to trans people for "systematic transphobia", was wrong because not all cis people are transphobic)
And I get that. But no matter how "usually liberal and inclusive" you are in your "run-ins" with trans people, supporting trans equity and trans rights includes understanding that sometimes trans people get frustrated with cis people and it means not immediately dismissing our concerns with a #notallcis argument. I'm sure you're actually a great person. And I'm not here to judge you, condemn you, or come for you in any way.
In fact I really appreciate cis people who support our work. But the fact is our work is uncomfortable and difficult and we can't do our work if we're also constantly trying to coddle cis people's fragility and not "alienate" or otherwise discomfit cis people.
