Even though I don’t have a good opinion of the older posts on this blog, one thing I keep going over in my mind is how odd it is to me… that someone who’s trans and/or not-straight and has dealt with heteronormativity and/or cissexism on a personal, immediate basis and possesses an intimate knowledge of those forces… could look at my post saying “don’t call me straight” in which you see me waffling and wavering and hesitantly identifying as kinda-sorta-maybe-if-you-force-my-hand cisgender & heteroromantic…
and could look at that and be like “Yeah this person’s 100% cishet and in denial. Yep. No question.”
And that doesn’t raise any red flags?
A blogpost that’s really obvious about my status as questioning somehow doesn’t register in their mind as indicating that I might be questioning?
Despite no doubt having personal experience with that situation, they somehow don’t pick up on any of the signs?
Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised or anything, maybe I shouldn’t expect anyone to recognize that experience in other people, but it still seems kind of… weird.
