About Political Correctness, Inclusion and My Frustration With It All
There was a rant on my spirit this afternoon and I tweeted it out. I was thinking about making it a real cohesive post but nahhh Storify will have to do. I could explain myself more and go into details on some of what I said but meh.
There’s a larger post coming from me called “Hypocritical Feminist, Fraudulent Writer and Hesitant Activist” where I talk about my own contradictions in belief and practice sometimes.

Chile, there are folks on Twitter who are currently MAD AT ME! Some have called me disgusting and some have called me unkind and uncaring of people more marginalized than me because of my tweets up top. I’ve been called transphobic in response and THAT shocked a G. My mentions have been in shambles with folks calling me all things but a child of God.
Apparently, I just gave everyone the permission to be terrible human beings and I just told people to let them get away with it. OHHHH OK!!! If someone reads this and that’s what they took away, I pity their reading comprehension.
If you disagree with me, that’s fine. Just remember that I hold the mic. If your comment is too disrespectful, I will block your IP address.
Update: My aim isn’t to disrespect a group of people, even in comedy. That rant was less thoughtful than usual but I do not hate trans people and the goal isn’t to have anyone feel disrespected but I was telling EVERYONE to MAN/WOMAN/EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN THE FUCK UP. That part was my attempt to being inclusive. Word. Being transphobic is not my intention nor who I am. But the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I’ll reflect based on some constructive feedback I’ve received.
