Literally lost this post and had to scroll way the fuck back down my dash to find it again and rb because I’m going to cry over it. Yes I know, I cry over everything these days, fuck off. I literally just started halfway coming out to people in my real life this week and this shit is fucking validating.
i love that one old timey 1910s trans dude who has a tiny wikipedia page for himself that he earned entirely due to him starting fights in bars and being the city’s hottest casanova
oh my GOD this is the best list
“ “[DEADNAME] Again" “
Like this glorious jerk got arrested so many times that was literally ALL THEY HAD TO WRITE IN THE PAPER
He was a vagrant street kid and Seattle girls were all over this guy, to the point where it caused a moral panic. There’s a famous anecdote about a women proclaiming her love in Denny Park and then trying to shoot herself, but most of these reports were falsely worded in a way that suggest his female admirers were “upset about being deceived” when really they were upset that he was wooing other women, or trying to get his attention by being as extra as possible.
What you also should know is that back in the day “seduction” was a literal crime that could put you in prison (unless you married the woman you seduced) but since he wasn’t cis they couldn’t really CHARGE HIM with anything. Legend.
I especially like “Seattle Woman Appears in Men’s Clothes Because She Says Her Features Make it Possible.” I can’t imagine anything but someone going “Hey! You can’t dress like that!” and him responding “Oh yes I can. You see, I look very good.”
I want a TV show about him
Another popular one, especially in wealthier families, was that your son would “move to Europe,” and then a few months later your “niece” would move into town and live in his old bedroom.
Trans isn’t new. We just have to know how to look for it in history.
Just as a reminder: the reason we don’t see a lot of trans history is because it was actively erased. Literally.
Germany had a thriving LGBTQ community in the early 20th century, before the Nazis came around. Germans, specifically Magus Hirshfeld, literally coined the term “transsexual” and performed the first modern SRS in the 1920’s. Then the Nazis came and sent them all to camps and burned their books. One of the first major Nazi book burnings was the library of the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft. We were purposefully erased from history.
We’ve always existed, and the people that oppose our existence need to know who they’re in company with.
