i have to present the topic proposal for my thesis in front of the class tomorrow and i’m already panicking because what i have is pretty much
"hello i’m going to write about gay whalers PLEASE DON’T THROW THINGS AT ME!!!"
experimenting w gender identity is always something to be encouraged. transness is not a precious commodity. it’s not something u can appropriate. and even if u discover that you’re actually cis, that you feel most comfortable as a cis boy or girl, exploring gender will always teach u something new and important about yourself.
you’re not a “transtrender” if u aren’t or haven’t always been completely confident in your transness. u and your identity are 1000% valid.
It is better to explore your gender identity and come to the conclusion that you’re cis than to never question it. It shows that you are not treating cis as the default, that you are identifying as male/female because that is who you are and not because it is the “default”. Same goes for nonbinary gender exploration.
Contrary to popular belief, marginalized groups actually don’t owe allies anything and aren’t obligated to praise allies just for showing basic human decency.
No but marginalized groups can’t treat allies like shit either
Yea we know, otherwise you’ll literally kill us
