For those of my trans family members about to travel home for the holidays, while some of you are unconditionally accepted by your family and looking forward to the opportunity to break bread with them, some of you with more complicated relationships with your blood family are dreading the trip home to break bread with them because of transphobic relatives that may drop by.
You may have had at one time or another while happily getting your grub on at the holiday dinner table some transphobic comments get dropped either in ignorance or microaggressively aimed at you by less than accepting relatives.
Thanks to MTV News, Kat Blaque and Franchesca Ramsey have come up with eight comeback lines for you to fire back at the transphobes related to you if you find yourself during the holidays getting shadily served by your relatives an unwanted side of transphobia with your holiday meal.
As a TransGriot public service, I’m signal boosting the MTV video so you’ll have it in a nice convenient spot to quickly view on your phones, laptops or tablets on the way to dinner with your blood family.
Safe travels to and from your holiday destinations, and here’s hoping that your holiday meal is free of transphobic drama.
