It was a bright and sunny day when I decided to join the counter-protest against the so-called “1 Million March 4 Children” which supposedly is stsands against “pedophilic sexualization” of children. I mean, who wouldn’t want to stand up against such a blatantly coded transphobic message? As I sipped my organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan latte, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the irony of it all.
The “anti-pervert” marchers claimed they were fighting against things like “premature sex propaganda” and the “sexual mutilation of children”. But as I looked around, I saw signs that read, “I love all but leave our kids alone!!!”. It was clear that this was all a thinly veiled attack on the transgender community.
I proudly donned my “Trans Rights are Human Rights” t-shirt and joined my fellow counter-protestors. We chanted, “Hey hey, ho ho, transphobia has got to go!” and “We’re here, we’re queer, get used to it!” It was truly a sight to behold.
As we stood our ground, I couldn’t help but notice the confused looks on the faces of the transphobic marchers. It was as if they had never encountered a group of people who were proud of who they were and weren’t afraid to show it. I guess they were expecting us to cower in fear or something. Joke’s on them!
At one point, a particularly vocal transphobic marcher approached me and shouted, “Why are you defending perverts?!” I calmly replied, “Why are you using ‘pervert’ as a code word for ‘transphobe’? It’s 2023, get with the times!” The look on their face was priceless.
The day was filled with laughter, love, and a whole lot of glitter. We danced, we sang, and we celebrated the beauty of diversity. It was a stark contrast to the somber mood of the hate-filled marchers, who seemed to be stuck in a time warp from the 1950s.
As the day came to a close, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride. We had taken a stand against bigotry and hatred, and we had done it with style. The anti-trans marchers may have had their day in the sun, but we had shown the world that love and acceptance will always prevail.
In the end, I learned a valuable lesson that day: never underestimate the power of a group of fabulous, fierce, and fabulous counter-protestors. We may be large in numbers, but we are even mightier in spirit. And we will always stand up for what’s right.
