The thing that terrifies the most about talking to people about Star Trek is that if they ask me what my favourite creature from ST is, I will have to unironically answer that it’s the unicorn dog from The Enemy Within

Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”
By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:
- The entire state of Rhode Island
- Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
- Pacific Islanders
I’ve been thinking for a while that we need some kind of umbrella term for literally everyone who isn’t a cis man, and what I came up with was MVP - Misogyny Vulnerable People.
I think this is important because people who are women both cis and trans, people who were assigned female, and people who are non-binary, all experience or have experienced and fear reexperiencing misogyny, all can be thrown under the misogyny bus in a way cis men just can’t. It seems that misogyny isn’t just something directed at those who identify as women, but that the state of cis masculinity, like whiteness and straightness, is something fragile that can be tainted with the merest brush of the Other.
I also see feminism as having multiple objectives—one objective is “protect women at all costs” and yes that means ALL female-identified people, but another objective is “end misogyny and protect people from misogyny” and that includes EVERYONE misogyny is levied at, all the MVPs, because misogyny is fucking awful and needs to stop. I know the people under this umbrella encompass a diverse set of genders and experiences, but I think this shared experience of misogyny is important and needs to be defined separate from gender.
