To answer your second question:
the two are not comparable
I agree that misgendering or calling a trans person the t word is not exactly the same as calling a black person the n word, however by not clarifying why they are both awful but different you have inadvertently given this person and countless other followers the idea that it is okay to misgender trans people or refer to them with derogatory terms. I feel that you should also have informed the person who asked the question that misgendering trans people is still a disgusting act. To do so inflicts incredible harm not only to the individual you have misgendered but perpetuates violence against trans people, especially trans women. It also triggers such intense and often crippling dysphoria, PTSD in survivors of hate crimes/abuse/violence that many cannot continue about their daily lives. Make no mistake, the history behind the n word is long, horrifying, and has so much blood behind it that anyone who says it is comitting an act of violence, but to only say that they are not comparable is to diminish the extraordinary and very real effects of verbal violence against trans people, many of whom also deal with racism as things like this nearly always work on an intersectional basis.
The struggle for gay rights and the struggle for Black rights do not have the same history on a superficial level, but when you examine the intersections of oppression and realize that while the fight for civil rights for the Black community did open many doors for Black Americans, many of those same people were also LGBT, and still had a majority of freedoms denied to them based on their sexual orientation and/or real/perceived gender. Also do not forget that the struggle for LGBT rights was started by trans women of color, the first object, a high-heel shoe, thrown at the police in protest at the Stonewall riots was pitched by Sylvia Rivera, a trans latina who worked with her ‘sister’ Marsha P. Johnson for countless years after that last Sunday in June 1969 at the Stonewall Inn. Rivera would go on to fight along side the Young Lords and Black Panthers in NYC for equal rights for people of color and people in the LGBT community with a “we’ll watch your back and you watch ours” understanding with both groups.
The main point of all of this is that while many people in the LGBT community ignorantly erase the history behind the struggle for Black civil rights by saying the LGBT rights movement is the “same”, to erase the contributions of LGBT people to the Civil Rights Movements and to erase the contributions of POC to the LGBT rights movement by simply saying “the two are not comparable” without any clarifications or other statements is irresponsible. You may not be a social justice blog, but many of your followers are both LGBT and POC and to not recognize that the two movements are connected is erasing of our experiences.
literally thats all anyone would need to tell me to get me to hate john green
"did you know in one of his books the two main characters make out in the anne frank house"
