All I wish to see instead of handsome gnc gay women transforming into gender conforming straight guys is gnc gay women who stay that way all their life and grow confident in themselves. We need that so much that it's vital, we need it in profusion. Too many people on social media where you share videos act as if these videos of trans before/after weren't breaking our hearts as women whose culture and sexual orientation is so intertwined with gender non conformity. Even femmes are defying gender norms, they are feminine women who don't and won't play the game entirely like society wants women to. They are solely attracted to women, that makes a huge difference. For butches, androgynous women, tomboys and women who are neither too masc or too feminine, it's important that our reality isn't depicted as some sort of old image of the past, something you can glow up from, that's something that separates us profoundly from trans people who insist on how being gnc was a sign, something to work on to achieve a better self. That's detrimental to our mental health and they need to understand that.
Right now in history we have a majority of women to trans men or non-binary narrative compared to men to trans women or non-binary narrative, this has consequences. We need gnc girls and women, who we know are for the most part lesbians (or bi), to know they are complete already, enough. There's a reason why lesbians mourned Ellen Page and were forced to accept it day 1 even if they usually accept all the Elliot Page of the world. It's hard seeing our models, our representations, being treated like nothing, insignificant pieces of a dusty past. When you treat a transition as if the person was never what we saw they were (a lesbian, a tomboy woman, an icon for our community, etc) then you won't understand the pain we can feel. No matter if the person is famous or not. Here's to a future full of gnc lesbians, out and proud, handsome and strong, not very sportive, shy or super introvert, even gnc women who aren't lesbians are helping all of us seeing ourselves in one way or another, representation matters but most importantly positive representation. We are the past, the present and the future. Butch lesbians, all women need you. When you take space and grow confident, we grow confident. 💕🌈
