"This is an invitation to stop swallowing the art in your mouth.
This is an invitation to stop ripping yourself apart.
This is an invitation to be a live nude. Let them draw you dirty, flawed and glistening.
This is an invitation to
"Don’t you dare
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow."
tonight is a really emotional gender feelings night and i’m realizing a lot of things and i really wish i had someone to hold me while i felt all this
'The right to be handsome': Clothing for gender non-conforming people on the rise | PBS NewsHour →
Companies that offer custom-made clothing for transgender and gender non-conforming people are coming to the forefront, as more diverse models gain visibility in the fashion industry – and redefine the parameters of gender identity. Ivette Feliciano reports. Continue reading →
A couple of my friends sent me this link today, and at first I was just like “cool, this is going to be about fashion I like.” I didn’t expect for it to hit me SO HARD that all i want is to look handsome in a masculine/(men’s? it feels like i’m not allowed to even say that ) suit that fits me. I have never wanted more in my life than I do right now.I’m crying like a baby about it right now. I never hated feminine/women’s suits. But it never felt like I was allowed to explore other options, and now everything in me wants to. I’m pretty sure I would break down sobbing with joy if I looked like any of these people in this video. And I want to be with people who look like that too, or even more masculine. And on top of feeling handsome myself, I want to be with someone who is so, so attracted to me as exactly that. Why can’t I have all these things right now?
Had my first conversation with a “but omg ‘they’ is plural!!11” person today
i wasn’t really prepared with a strong way of telling her why that response is not okay, cause it was unexpected and kinda threw me off
i ended up telling her that there are a million gender neutral pronouns and she can pick any of them to use for me, which i’m actually really okay with.
i did actually say something like “it’s more important that people are comfortable than whatever you think is proper grammar” but she still was like “i know i know but it just doesn’t sound right” :/
I also worry about her not taking me seriously, especially because i was dressing more femme than usual today/when we had this conversation. which is know is bullshit, i’m still exactly as genderqueer as i am when i look like a 12-year-old boy. ugh.

Thriving because of
JK Rowling said she would have made Seamus/Dean canon but she felt it would be distracting from the main trio
Literally how much space do you need to have a line about Dean asking Seamus to the Yule ball
Look, I’ll try

binder feelings →
i think i want to try wearing a binder, but i feel like i’m not allowed to (even though i want to see what i’d look like/feel like in it) because i don’t really have dysphoria. sometimes i like my breasts more (mostly i really like them during sex), sometimes i like them less, but i seriously…
Update on binder feelings: I think another big reason/thing I like about wearing a binder is the fact that I think people see it (by it sticking out a bit from a sleeveless shirt or by people just assuming that I’m wearing one by being a female-bodied person with a flat chest) and are more likely to assume that I’m genderqueer than they would if I wasn’t wearing one. And then after that they’re more likely to ask about it, what pronouns I prefer, etc. and UGH I really like inviting that conversation. I mean I know I don’t have to be a binder-wearing human to be a valid genderqueer human, and I could look femme as fuck and like what typically passes as female without 100% identifying as female. But I do want to be a more androgynous/masculine of center kind of genderqueer, and I feel like much like some trans men I’ve talked to, I feel more comfortable being feminine at times when it’s coming from a more genderqueer place.
