My sexuality: 4:27 from Janelle Monae’s video for Electric Lady
I harp on trans men a lot, and a lot of it is just that many trans men (both in my life and on this site) behave atrociously towards women and 100% act as agents of patriarchy
But also there’s this lie that’s been going around: that in order to be trans and afab you HAVE to be transmasc - demigirls are actually cis, girl-aligned nbs are actually cis, no afab with a shred of womanhood in them can possibly be trans in any way (This is part of a larger lie that manhood in general is real and natural while womanhood is artificial and fake).
And maybe there are baby transes out there wh believe this lie like I used to, and feel like they have to choose between being cis or being a man. And I want to let those kids know that there are other, less toxic ways to honor your own feelings about yr gender.
coming this fall on Fox/NBC/AMC: this ruggedly handsome white man is an asshole who treats everyone terribly but… there’s a twist… he’s Good at His JOB…
you always gotta keep your opponent on their toes. unless your opponent is a ballerina, that is where they are most powerful
lets talk about how the gender neutral wardrobe is boyish clothes because feminine clothes aren’t considered neutral
and it’s totally connected with the idea that men are the default
also connected to the fact that afab (specifically, those who are white & thin) people can more easily be “androgynous” than amab people can
I feel the way I always feel after breaking up with a straight boy.
