i dream of being possible

suddenly wondering

how the white insistance that gender and sexuality are two completely distinct things has actually prevented many trans people in poc countries

from utilizing their country’s non-discrimination against sexuality laws from asserting their rights…

(don’t even have to wonder…. since i can see how the strong distinction has meant that trans people in canada have to fight for our own grounds of non-discrimination because the sexual orientation one is thought to necessarily exclude us.)
