seriously, we gotta be nicer as a community to our trans bros.
to be clear, so nobody can mischaracterise what i'm saying here, i don't mean give them a free pass for bad behaviour, i do mean don't always do these low blows all the time where we blame them for the shit cis men do

do you think that trans men are out there living like your dads and douchey exes and creepy bosses?? like do you think we're all just Having Fun With The Lads, escaping the difficulties that come with being feminine or trans or queer?? that we do not continue to experience various mixed up forms of sexism, transphobia and homophobia regularly?? like you think we're out here being men cause it's a fun easy way to cheat the system??

trans masc people: the community has a problem with unfairly associating us with toxic masculinity and talking over u--
The Community: that's actually not true and have you considered you think that because you're toxically masculine

@ghost_bird trans masc discourse needs whatever trans masculine people say it does. the literal central problem with our ""discourse"" is currently and has been almost forever that trans masculine people are an invisible part of the community and our voices don't get heard. regardless of how salient you think your point is unless it's been informed directly by trans masc people it's literally a part of the problem

"bring your whole self to work" they say, as if they could afford it

If you're not familiar with tangents in composition I highly recommend reading about it so you can make a conscious effort to avoid them

being a provider or a protector is also incredibly powerful. to assume that my definition of being a provider or a protector involves being a straight man, domineering a poor repressed woman and our children i don't pay enough attention to is pretty heteronormative and a bit ableist. i actually have a partner with various disabilities who talks often about how much they would love to be my housewife, because work is unpleasant and stressful for them and they get joy and satisfaction elsewhere

there are many ways of and reasons for doing make up and dressing up that have absolutely nothing to do with the male gaze, or being socially pressured to cater to it. when i say "i love socializing with men" i dont mean toxic groups of cishet men, i largely mean "i love socializing with other trans, queer & gnc men". being a parent and taking care of a home are two incredibly important and powerful things to do. that there are people out there who enjoy that and freely choose 2 do it is amazing

hot take: if you're a trans person's parent you don't get to do the "i pay your rent, do what i say" thing

if you really want to bring receipts into it we can take a few hours to dive into the lifetime cost of being trans including medically necessary surgical intervention and see how much of that you're paying as recompense for that little genetic mixup you had a couple decades ago

i'll go get my calculator, you go get your checkbook

There is an entire system of cultural pressures which restrict us from being the inherently playful animals we really are deep down. Life isn't supposed to be boring and terrible just because you've grown up.

Enjoy things. Be weird.

• birds are not susceptible to capsaicin
• birds are basically dinosaurs
• so dinosaurs were not susceptible to capsaicin
• so dinosaurs could not use hot peppers in their cuisine for their "heat"
• so dinosaur cuisine probably relied more on black pepper and sharp acidic flavors for heat
