gay shit ive done that i thought was 100% straight before i realized: a biography
tried to explain to my straight friends that girls are just objectively more attractive than guys. like objectively.
and being convinced that they were lying to me when they disagreed and said they were attracted to men
didn’t understand why breakups were such a big deal. “if he doesn’t give you enough attention just leave him.” “well at least now you have more time for yourself!” “well you still have me :)”
avoided watching lingerie or swimsuit commercials and had my eyes glued to the floor in locker rooms because obviously i’m not gay. like look at how not gay i am
“yeah sometimes i want people to look at me and wonder wtf i am”
got happy chemicals when people thought i was with my female friend
thought that bi girls and lesbians were the coolest fuckin people ever
female characters who didn’t want a relationship with a man and had their own independent storylines were my favorites
stopped watching shows if the characters randomly got paired up in het relationships
got super excited “for no reason” whenever i read a book with gay rep
“i want to look goth and lethal and have a sword but i also want to be a fairy and look like the embodiment of a claire’s store”
“i wish i was a boy because girls are so pretty and i don’t want to have to be with a boy”
never wanted to get married or have kids
felt super uncomfortable whenever a man would show any interest in me
“obviously ⏳ is more attractive than🚪”
but all sizes and shapes of girls are cute
sweaters, flannels, boots and beanies are not seasonal, they are year-long clothing items for all weather. even if it’s 108 degrees and humid
handpicked boys to have a crush on
“these are the men i’m attracted to” (insert queer-coded fictional character with feminine characteristics)
“who do you have a crush on?” “no one” “aw are you embarrassed to tell us?” 😐
any man who has ever been nice to me i must have a crush on now. that’s the rules.
i think i like him but i have to convince myself really hard that i do and the second he reciprocates fondness i no longer like him. i’m probably just picky
“he’s sweet, he’s funny, his face is symmetrical, and he’s smart but not in a show-off way… why don’t i like him?”
“look at all these other girls being boy-crazy. SOO GLAD i’m not like that :P”
other gays/queer people feel free to add on (although this is primarily for sapphics (and aspecs))

Being masculine does not make you evil. It doesn't make you an asshole. It doesn't even make you a man... It just makes you masculine.
Masculinity is not exclusive to cis-men.
You can be a trans-man and be masculine.
You can be a cis-woman and be masculine.
You can be a trans-woman and be masculine.
You can identify any way possible and still be masculine.
Masculinity should never be restricted by biology, and it's ridiculous that people think that way. Anyone can enjoy being called handsome and masculine if that is what they want, and there is no shame in that ever.
If you are masculine, no matter your gender, you deserve to be seen, and you deserve respect.

Trans people deserve the same freedoms of gender expression as cis people.
If cis men can wear skirts, dresses, jewellery and makeup and still be considered men, so can trans men.
If cis women can have short hair, not shave or wear makeup and wear suits and still be considered women, so can trans women.
To all the trans people reading this, I hope you have a wonderful day and know that you are loved
