thinking about the time i wasted as a kid performing femininity because i didnt know there was any other option, and then performing masculinity because i thought that the only alternative to a complete embrace of the role i was assigned at birth was a total rejection.
gender is a farce. binaries are a farce. simply telling kids "be yourself! uwu" is completely insubstantial against all the forces in society saying that [x way of being] is Incorrect and to be avoided. fuck
Discussion - Cultural Socialization and Osmosis
So I 've been thinking this whole idea where Cis people don't realize the extent of cultural socialization and more. Since I tried so hard to be a manly man like obsessing on it to such a degree even minor gestures or more if they were feminine I immediately tried to stop myself.
So why is it impossible to believe previous 'straight' people realize they are gay, no, lesbian or myriad of others. They likely tried so hard to be 'straight' and even if they married likely just wanted so bad to be 'normal'. In other words, they tried so hard to fit in the box because they believed the box was the only thing. Now they know different.

Just read a take that was like, "people don't hate trans folks, they hate trans activists"
this is basically just saying you want trans people to be quiet, and the only way to be a likable trans person is to never mention your struggles as one
if this is your thinking, f*ck off
In a fit of misplaced nostalgia I decided to rerelease my first album from 2000. Be kind. http://beesbuzz.biz/music/4428-fluffy-porcupine-pointed-little-quill
Seattle-based music/code/comics critter. Vaguely friend-shaped. Fibro-spoony, queer, and anxious as heck. Handle with care.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
