Photo of Your dating "preferences" are discriminatory | Riley J. Dennis, uploaded by Subsonic. Dennis concludes in her video, "Because these dating preferences are ultimately harmful to people who don't fit into your box of what a conventionally attractive person looks like, it makes. Apr 21, Riley J. Dennis has covered the issue of discriminatory dating preferences before - and she's gotten all kinds of responses that show that people have a hard time with this issue when it comes to trans folks. So if you think she's being homophobic, upholding rape culture, or any of these other common ideas, check out what she has to say Author: Riley J. Dennis.
I could sit here and show you photos of conventionally attractive trans people. And that might convince some of you. Because we associate penises with men and vaginas with women, some people think they could never date a trans man with a vagina or a trans woman with a penis.
But I think that people are more than their genitals. And I think this can be especially prominent within the queer community. As someone who is trans and gay, sometimes people ask me, with a very accusatory tone, if I would date a girl with a penis.
But you can unlearn your own prejudices; it just takes time and conscious effort. Everything in the media you consume is bombarding you with messages that skinny is beautiful and fat is ugly, and even the nicest of people absorb these messages to some degree.
Disabilities can happen to anyone.
Though if it does, it might not be because of them, but rather because you have some preconceived ideas about disabled people that are just inaccurate and harmful. Trans feminists and YouTube personalities, such as Riley J. Dennis and Contrapoints, have been arguing for some time that a lack of sexual attraction to trans folks is, to some degree, shaped by societal prejudices and stereotypes.
As a PhD student in sociology and a trans feminist, I am concerned about how the debate has misrepresented trans critics and led to attacks on trans feminists and activists. This video struck a nerve in far-right circles, which led to a harassment campaign against Riley carried out by an angry cyber-mob of thousands of users systematically downvoting her videos and sending her hurtful content, comments, and venomous response videos.
For instance, her video mentioned above has two thousand likes and fifty thousand dislikes followed by an endless stream of abusive comments, many of them misgendering Riley.
Such an argument would understandably irritate a lot of people. Critics argued that Riley was attempting to coerce straight men and lesbian women into having sexual attractions to trans women. This debate has riled trans exclusionary radical feminists TERFswhich has heightened the already intense transphobic harassment practiced over online spaces like YouTube and Twitter.
Many of these TERFs already go out of their way to harass, intimidate, and dehumanize trans women, especially those women in publicly-facing positions. As any woman and feminist killjoy could likely tell you, gendered online abuse and harassment is not only highly prevalent and commonplace, but very damaging and traumatizing. It is especially dangerous for trans women who speak out against transphobia and abuse.
The last time I wrote an article about transphobiaI was featured on Kiwifarms a troll website dedicated to abusing, harassing, and embarrassing transgender folks and those who suffer from mental health issues.
White subsequently admitted wrongdoing and apologized for this, if only because of discovering that Dennis was medically transitioning. Dennis, Author at Everyday Feminism.
