birthisawesome: While I wish I had time to write actual blog posts (or anything longer than a grocery list), I do not. So imagine my excitement when I came across this great article on vernix caseosa (the white, cream cheesey coating so many newborns are covered in at birth) by Marie at Birth Bliss.

A Bug's Life: The Importance Of Naming Oneself
Cathy Brennan: Don't call me cis! I am not cis!
Trans* Woman: Okay, I think you have a different understanding of the term than I do, but I support the right to self-identify so I won't use it for you specifically.

Cathy Brennan: And I self-identify you as male.
Trans* Woman: You can't actually do that.
Cathy Brennan: Don't take away my right to self-identify you!
Trans* Woman: ...I think you miss the point of "self-identify". The key word here is "self".
Cathy Brennan: Uh, right, dude, and my self identifies you as male. Have you even BEEN to law school?

Trans* Woman: Yes.
Cathy Brennan: And therefore you must be male.
Trans* Woman: But what about the right to self-identify?
Cathy Brennan: It is crucial. That's why you must not infringe upon my right to self-identify by being female. I was here first.
Trans* Woman: That's not actually a...
Cathy Brennan: FIRST!
Trans* Woman: ...
Cathy Brennan: By the way, I found out your legal name so I'm a call you Josh.
Trans* Woman: ...
Cathy Brennan: Now I self-identify as someone who is being threatened by you. Why are you so violent, Josh?
