It is really rude and negates what were very often very hard lives that included periods of doing sex work to tell someone who came out at 20 or so in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s or even later that it was impossible to do so. Or to tell them there was no information available and then argue with them when they say they found such information in magazines and libraries in very small towns.
Telling people like us that it was impossible just because you didn’t or couldn’t does not mean ordinary working class transkids of all races didn’t.
It was possible because we weren’t all that extraordinary and we did it.
Want to see us get angry? Argue with us that it was impossible. For if it was impossible as you say then it negates our lived lives and our history and replaces that vital history with a mythology that is a lie.
