A trans man coming out as a man is never a loss.
I don’t care if he went into a male-dominated field. All fields are cis dominated.
I don’t care if he’s a straight man now. He should be allowed to be himself and happy. He does not owe it to you to be a miserable lesbian for your comfort.
I don’t care if you thought he was hotter before. His happiness is worth the price of your desire. Also you’re wrong and I’m giving him my number.
More trans men is a good thing. More trans men means more closeted trans men are feeling safe to come out. That’s a good thing.

the statements "clothes don't have gender" and "clothes can and do invoke gender dysphoria and euphoria for many people" can and should coexist.

It's unfortunate how often the solution to a problem is just talking to people. You'd think it could be something easier like making a comprehensive chart or list, or reading everything you can find on the subject, but no, so often you can do all that and you still have to talk to people.

There is supposed to be a place where no one can reach you. Traditionally, the home, but now we settle for the ocean, the airplane, the summit of a mountain, the middle of a lake, the shower, the womb, the grave

hate to say it gang but every time I try to search a big fancy academic database for works that cover two or three intersecting topics to the exclusion of all others and inevitably wind up with the world's least useful search results, I do think to myself "godddd ao3's tag filtration system is so much better"

1930s news about a trans woman: Well I'll be curfuffled young Corlotta Jhonson has transformed herself from a dandy into a dame and what a Bombshell she's become. And How!
1930s news about trans men: Wanted dead or alive this young lady who started wearing trousers, the tomboy terror known only as The Crust is wanted for snorting the President's personal stash of opium and has slain nearly every senate member in a pistol duel.

Children's oppression and lack of humanization is one topic that makes my insides feel like they're rotting and I'll die on the hill of defending them and pointing out how fucking gross it is every single time people act like it's cool actually to hate a group of people who are the least able to defend themselves in any terrible situation
Y'all will scream "protect queer kids" "protect trans kids" "protect kids of color" then forget all that and proudly stand behind "well kids are fucking annoying in public actually so it's fine when I talk about wanting to have grocery stores and planes that are child free :)" individualism has killed humanity so deeply

it's literally all about having a primary public gender and a secondary personal gender

listen, i am against a large portion of what marriage is as a mechanism of beurocracy, but i keep seeing people saying its "just a peice of government paper" its not its the right to see your loved one in the hospital its the right to their things if they die suddenly its the right to make the decision you know they would if they are incapacitated its the right to help them, to follow them, to be with them, in any situation. as a "partner" even one of a lifelong committment, you can and will be barred from the hospital room if your lovers life is in danger of ending. they will say "blood relations only" and that peice of government paper might be the ONLY thing that would let you say goodbye. i remember the tail end of the aids crisis. i saw my mothers friends woe, i heard their storys. men and women dying sad and alone in hospital beds because their loved one, who they would have married, was not a "blood relation" and they were not ALLOWED to marry. im not telling you to get married, you know what you want, but do Not minimize the power of what marriage is, we fought for it for a REASON
also it can Seriously unfuck your taxes to file joint, dont bark at that

one time when I was a barista I was telling my coworker that I suddenly really missed cows. I used to work with cows all the time back home and then I moved away and suddenly it had been four years and nary a cow.
15 minutes later this old guy came up to the counter with his address written on a napkin & he said “me and my wife have a whole herd of dexters and a couple of new calves. come on over any time”
so after work I was like ok fuck it & I drove to the address and I parked at at the gate & I walked down the driveway to the barn and this woman was like “oh my husband told me you might stop by! come see our cows” and she introduced me to every single cow. made my whole week.
thank you cow couple
