Running seems like a great idea until you actually start running
I often forget that superheroes are supposed to be these hyper-masculine male fantasies because I spend so much time talking about their emotional vulnerabilities and imagining them in lacy thongs
shit i am tired of
cis people get pronouns. trans people get preferred pronouns.
cis people get a gender. trans people get to identify as a gender.
these are microaggressions designed to undermine and invalidate who we know ourselves to be, and to reinforce the perceived inauthenticity of trans people.
this is always harmful, and for some, primarily trans feminine people and esp trans feminine poc, it can be dangerous or deadly.
Last night my little sister (5th grade) was making an e-mail account
She saw gender and went to click female when she noticed the “other” choice
She looked at me confused and I started to explain that some people don’t think they fit in with strictly male or female
"Oh! You mean like transgender and stuff like that. I was freaked out for a second- I thought they meant robots."
Yet another example the kids are more open-minded than adults
im pretty sure bromance is the perfect example of how embarrassingly fragile masculinity is. you know what a female bromance is called? a friendship
i wanna feel how dogs feel when you let them go in a big field
