The internet is filled with wonderful things and nothing defines our use of it as clearly as the concept of the meme. Recently, they have become as powerful as language itself, covering literally any topic you can think of—from cute and comfy animal jokes to expressions of your own identity.

Enter the r/traaaaaaannnnnnnnnns subreddit (or r/traa for short), a place where transgender people can make fun "of themselves, others, and the situations they find themselves in." Known as one of the most legendary trans-centered communities, it is dedicated to posting meaningful content ranging from serious, to relatable, to completely hilarious.

Bored Panda collected some of the most spot-on memes and jokes from the sub, so check them out below and make sure to upvote your favorite ones!

I love that people around were sticking up for her, I don’t love that it comes down to threats of violence to get someone to behave themselves - that’s lowest common denominator stuff.

Do You Seriously Think I’m Just Gonna Leech The Nutrition From Your Body Until You Die? How Did You Know?

Do You Seriously Think I’m Just Gonna Leech The Nutrition From Your Body Until You Die? How Did You Know?

Ampro1 Report

Ever since its creation in 2012, r/traa has become a true powerhouse with more than 297K members posting memes that have something to do with being trans, or about the trans community. The subreddit asks its subscribers not to be too political and simply have fun. Many people share posts about the struggles they run into every single day, from transphobia to transitioning and many more.

Still, their take on tackling such serious issues is to disguise it with humor. This isn’t the place to argue but rather to embrace the weirdness, absurdity, and hilariousness of random situations that trans people find themselves in.

Being one of the most popular online trans-oriented pages, the subreddit is also dedicated to building a supportive and meaningful community, not only serving memes. One of the moderators told Mashable: "When I started, it was a lot more edgy memes. Now it's more like a place where people can leave events, support others, and comfort others while seeking humor."

"We didn't realize the user base had changed so much. It was just a couple thousand people just making crass jokes." But really, it had become something more than that.

Over the past few years, the page has seen an enormous increase in subscribers. "I think a lot of it has to do with increasing acceptability," the mod said. "Of course during [Trump’s] presidential administration we've regressed a lot in terms of human rights. But in terms of social consciousness, people are more aware of what being trans is." 

They added: "People want to know what options there are for people who experience gender dysphoria or who are not their assigned gender at birth. It's really hard to be able to explore those things alone."

reddit.com Report

The moderator mentioned that they’ve noticed an increase of younger users who are feeling more open in their lives to come out. At least to come out online, and that's why a lot of trans people turn to the r/traa subreddit.

Such online communities are great for people who might not be ready to talk loudly about their struggles but need to vent and let those feelings out in some way. It allows people to know that there are others like them who are going through the same issues in their everyday lives. This creates a sense of belonging and reminds them that they have a place to turn to.

"Trans people are often some of the most marginalized people in society," the moderator explained. "So they develop thick skin, which translates into humor. Because a lot of trans people's experiences are pretty dark and pretty sad, there has got to be some way to keep the hope up [and this is one]."

Since the trans community has only grown more visible in recent years, it is critical to represent their thoughts and feelings. The content r/traa posts shows that it is a safe environment with a purpose. Even if that purpose is to share the most absurd and ridiculous memes out there, trans people have a chance to feel free and express their own voices.

The culture where in order to attack someone you insult their mother who never did anything to you must die. Really bad taste and kinda misogynistic.

There are daily mass shootings in the U.S. Conpared to similarly wealthy countries, this is a uniquely American problem. We also have a disproportionately gigantic number of civilians already in prisons. I don't know how to make us more concerned about this.

I know a good number of trans people (close friends and also acquaintances). All of them transitioned as adults and none of them pass. They are the ones whose rights I will fight for the hardest. I've had a lifetime of being judged for my appearance. They don't need that bullshit on top of everything else they have been through.
