Since most of the materials I linked in the last post are in English anyway, I decided to sum up the earlier blog post and list just the English speaking resources.
Let’s jump right to it:
I was lucky enough to attend a Workshop by Louzie (she’s a political activist who focuses among lots of other topics – on trans* and trans*femininity issues – see her profile on the female speakers‘ list), which was super helpful – thanks Louzie!
Few points I learned are that were discussed in the workshop:
- Transmisogynie aims for the performance, not for identity; so all ‚male-appearing‘ persons that perform are seen to perform in a ‚feminin‘ way can be effected by that, including cis-males.
- we briefly discussed feminist socialisation and its impact on expectations and (hidden) rules, coming with (potential) exclusions.
- we heard about transwomen’s experience to be judged and excluded due to reproaches of ‚male dominant behaviour‘ – while cis-women are not called out for the same behaviour. Short question to remember whenever you wonder if critizising someone’s behaviour is transmisogynie or not: „Would it be a problem when a cis-woman did the same? No? Then it’s transmisogynie.“
Here’s a list of materials on Transmisogynie, recommended by Louzie (mehr…)
