Hey, I had this experience two days ago, in a video game store. Which I've always found to be a very dude-centric environment. In an uncomfortable way. So I was browsing and the two guys working there started talking about some game where a female character gets naked. They were going on and on saying horrible shit like "What was her name again? Who cares?" "I already forgot her name. That's how much I care." I had my back to them. I turned bright fucking red and started sweating and shaking. I mean, let me explain I guess. It's just, I lived as a woman for 20 years. I am a survivor of sexual abuse and exploitation, because of objectifying fucks like them. So hearing people talk like that is, on a good day, upsetting. On a bad day, it's extremely triggering. And it just...sucks. To be taken for a guy and hear other guys talking all this disgusting shit about women. I mean this is not the first time this has happened for me. I was wondering if other FTM's, or also MAAB trans people who are living disguised as men, have shitty experiences like this. You know, where you're assumed to be "part of the club". And you're NOT.
(And for the record, I don't know for sure that the guys talking were cis. If they aren't, then shame on them. I mean...I just feel like transguys should know better. But I know we often don't.)
