I’m so happy with my body atm. I know it’s not gonna last, but I just look so feminine today.
Let’s talk about the fact that as a child I was afraid of being gay, out queer or trans because I didn’t want to be beat up at school. Let’s talk about how I’m still afraid of coming out to my parents because as an adult who requires medication to function at all I need my parent’s support and insurance, and how I’ll lose it if they kick me out. Let’s talk about my friends who have to hide who they really are from their families, coworkers, school peers, and teachers. Let’s talk about how many people I know who won’t come out to certain friends because they think it’s okay to be friends with homophobic, biphobic, cissexist, transmisogynistic people because “they’re really nice besides that.” Let’s talk about how many kids are abused because they do something that’s not heteronormative. Let’s talk about representation in children’s media.
Let’s talk. Please.
We need to talk about it.
It needs to be heard
