the problem with respectability is that nothing you do will convince a bigot that trans people are ok. no matter how much you try to be the nice forgiving queer, they'll still find some issue to pick and blame it on all transies. There's no course of action that can prevent this.
what you can do is to teach a bigot that trans people bite back.

I just stumbled across this on Etsy. I've often heard trans-masculine nonbinary folks say they want a packer that does not even remotely resemble real body parts. DarbParts meets that need with unique soft sculptures for packing. They are handmade by a nonbinary artist, who accepts commissions for custom ones. These packers have been shown in a gallery as art exhibits! The packers look like mountain landscapes, ice cream desserts, rocket ships, glittering snails, lacy ornaments, bunches of feathers, and other creations.
i vibe so hard with baph bc of the esoteric/occult stuff so i can’t believe i just made this connection
