More privilege here more privilege there

🌍🌍🌍 is a term that gets thrown around daily which makes me think, are there different types of 🌍🌍🌍. Does 🌍🌍🌍 come in a multitude of pockets? My question challenges the concept of 🌍🌍🌍 in the trans community. I personally don’t think that the stigmas around 🌈 Β  versus πŸ‘«πŸ‘« people are identical in any set fashion. Actually, naturally πŸ‘«πŸ‘« people are more 🌍🌍🌍. Why? Well, because we live in a heteronormative world. However, just as πŸ‘¨ are more privileged than πŸ‘©, trans πŸ‘¨ too hold a greater amount of 🌍🌍🌍 than trans πŸ‘©. The concept that I challenge is the notion of trans πŸ‘© holding more 🌍🌍🌍 than trans πŸ‘¨ in any sense.

Key:

🌍🌍🌍   Privilege

πŸ‘¨ Β  Men

πŸ‘© Β  Women

πŸ‘«πŸ‘« Β  cis-gendered

🌈   trans people

Spaces everywhere

My expert question fostered discussion around hyper-masculine πŸš€ and πŸ‘¨πŸ‘¨πŸ‘¨Β bonding. Do 🚢 have the autonomy to create hyper-masculine

spaces inΒ any community?Β Should a specific space be given to the person doing the most work in the house? Maybe stay at home moms should get their

own πŸš€. Should the πŸ—£πŸ‘ be deemed aΒ πŸš€? πŸ‘¨πŸ‘¨πŸ‘¨ bonding with 🚢 can overlap in a “πŸ’’s space” if 🚢 want to occupy it in certain cases (i.e.

pre-games). PerhapsΒ the πŸš€ do not have to be physical. Lets take the dinner table, while the dining room is the “πŸ’’s πŸš€,” the head of the

table isΒ for the man. So is it safe to say that 🚢 who serve as the πŸ—£πŸ‘ are free to claim any πŸš€ in the house as their own? I do wonder.
