instead of inflammatory statements like “government employees are circulating pictures of my nakedness as part of a horrifying violation of thousands of women’s bodies”, center the discussion in constructive, moderate externalizations of what you, personally, are feeling. try saying, instead, “i’m unhappy”
I was strongly advised against even mentioning the systematic discimination against trans women in my insurance grievance, and it was probably the “right” advice, because in this horrible fucking country you aren’t credible unless you see yourself as a jostled but solitary cog in a great and fair society and also fail to convey any understanding that systems even exist, great and fair or otherwise. It’s nauseating.
