"seriously, if you as a privileged individual cannot change one 'little' attitude, one 'little' action, 'little' word usage, or any other 'little' thing, then what makes you think you are actually doing anything meaningful to make things better?" -- [info] stoneself, 2007-08-19

[Today is the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance to memorialize those slain for their gender-nonconformance. I entreat any of my readers not already doing so to include "making the world less hostile to non-cisgendered people" on your list of ways to try to make things better; and I thank those who have already been trying to help improve our world in this way. I know that some of my friends have already changed "little", and maybe not so little, attitudes and language patterns and such. I also know, having been called on it in matters where I'm the one with privilege, how easy it is to overlook all of those "small things" when you're not the one those small things keep landing on.]
