Whereas those factions of cisgender people by sanction of state or sanction of religion, either by explicit or implicit means, or by inaction:

  • have trivialized and ridiculed transgender people for the satisfaction of cisgender people,
  • have majority and systematic control over our transgender narratives,
  • have committed crimes of casual abuse against transgender people,
  • have committed crimes of psychological warfare against transgender people,
  • have sought to censure transgender people for expressing the desire to be treated with the same respect afforded cisgender people
  • have sought to inspire and incite violence and maltreatment against transgender people
  • have committed crimes of deprivation of liberty and crimes against humanity against transgender people
  • have committed crimes of murder against transgender people, and
  • have the desire of eradicating transgender people as a whole

Whereas those factions of cisgender people, nation states, organized religions, and religiously motivated groups have refused to address the above and take action to rememdy the above in a serious and timely fashion

Therefore, be it resolved that signatories or adherents to this document do solemnly declare war against those factions above and those States and organizations sanctioning and/or harboring them, and that signatories or adherents take any means necessary or desired (that would not be in themselves criminal acts) against those factions, States, and organizations with an end to the cessation of the crimes listed.

Cislesbianism annoys me for its tendency to focus a lot on the trans male aspect of things.

So, I’ve always liked the attitude that you don’t give up the words you identify with (eg., feminism; you might have heard people giving up identifying with it because some aspects of its nature has changed by some people), you keep your terminology and rename the movements that stray. Lesbianism, by its very definition, must center and respect the interests of trans dykes as well as cis dykes. Sadly, it feels like cislesbianism is the dominant faction.
