Just a quick PSA
There is NO WRONG WAY to be punk. you just have to be KIND, CONSIDERATE, and OPEN-MINDED while doing it.
You DON'T need a jean jacket
You DON'T need piercings
You DON'T need tattoos
You DON'T need combat boots
You DON'T need a leather jacket with sharp studs in the shoulders
You DON'T need to smoke cigarettes
You DON'T need to look tough or intimidating
You DON'T need to wear torn up jeans
You DON'T need to be dark and edgy
You DON'T have to be aggressive
You DON'T have to be violent
You can have these things and still be punk, but you don't have to have them. Just be you, and do what makes you happy and comfortable.
You DO need to be nice
You DO need to be kind
You DO need to be open-minded
You DO need to be supportive of others
You DO need to be your genuine self
You DO need to be who you are and want to be
Please add to this if you'd like, just know that whatever you feel is punk is YOUR special kind of punk.
Before I go, have a quote from Billie Joe Armstrong
"A guy walks up to me and asks, "What's Punk?". So I kick over a garbage can and say. "That's punk!". So he kicks over the garbage can and says, "That's Punk?", and I say, "No that's trendy!"" -Billie Joe Armstrong
Bye! Have a good one. :)

The only thing that affects your gender is your gender. The only one who gets to say what gender you are is you. There is no right way to be your gender, and that applies to both cis and trans people!
