Today’s Gender of the Day is: If you’re cis don’t make these jokes
Just to elaborate on this submission, this is basically a summary of my actual position, but there’s more to it than that.
Cis people making these kinds of gender jokes is at best, awkward and strange, and it makes you question what the intent behind the joke is. At worst, it’s very offensive and dehumanizing. Between those two extremes is the bottom line that it’s just not being a very cool ally to trans folk. It’s similar to straight people making gay jokes. It’s just not cool.
And as I’ve said time and time again, if you feel strongly about gender humor, so strongly that not having gender humor would be a subtraction of enjoyment from your life, you should consider that you might not be as cis as you think you are.
