Media… Part 1

This is a discussion that comes up typically among myself on message boards. But recently there has been an overwhelming amount of  transmedia being portrayed by  cis people. However what bothers me the most that almost everytime it comes up. I have to argue my point of view with cis people or other transpeople.This for us equates to blackface. In some cases, it not only depicts us in a negative light but also takes our accomplishments, stories, and  failures away and repurposing them into something that can be mass monetized . It’s almost like they feel entitled to do as they wish with what little history or voice we have while simultaneously being embarrassed by our existence.

 

(I’m not done with this I just need to wrap up before bed but I plan to post another microblog about this within the next two days that will be much more in-depth.)
