Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

"You don't care about trans people, you just care about yourself," the cisgender man said to the transgender women.

Then his bar closed and everyone lived happily ever after.

The End

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Exactly how are cisgender gay men fighting for transgender people?

You have as much capacity to propagate misogyny and transmisogyny as any other cisgender person, gay or straight.

You just have the added bonus of masquerading as an ally, while perpetuating just as much harm.

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Citing the name of an event in a city that has lost one of the 13 trans women of color who were murdered this year probably isn't the best example... Or maybe more illustrative of the topic at hand?

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Respectability politics aside...

You've yet to address, how you listened to the recording and still could not to come to the conclusion that the moniker was harmful and should be changed.

I'm quite interested to know your rationale. Please be careful, I can be very patient with micro-aggressions against me, but when I hear them directed at others, it's very grating.

I think it's fair to say that whether or not you like how people say things, what they have to say is still valid.

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Kelly brings up a really disturbing point.

I confirmed with Josie at start of the meeting, "So what you're saying is that if even ONE person here feels uncomfortable with being recorded, we as a group will agree not to subject them to it?"

To which she said, "Yes, that's correct."

I obviously took the opportunity to point out the irony that this small token of dignity and respect for one another was an odd juxtaposition to the subject of the Town Hall.

Craig, what possessed you to flagrantly disregard the privacy rules set forth that evening?

Change the name. It may not save your business, but if what you claim about being an ally is true, then own your mistakes, and work to correct them.

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Craig, you must really know absolutely no shame...

You want facts? Here's a fact: those people who were lost, are not your martyrs who's memory is yours to invoke when you need a guilt-inducing defense of indefensible actions and words.

Furthermore, being an ally to trans folks is not a competition... it's just being a decent person.
