I'm a trans guy and there's this really cute guy in my class that I like. The problem is, apparently he thinks I'm a butch lesbian (which I learned from a mutual friend). How do I bring this up and correct him without calling too much attention to it?
if you’re talking to him, you can casually mention either being a boy or liking boys really easily if you see an opportunity. “Oh, my ex-boyfriend used to….” “I was peeing in the mens restroom and…” (okay maybe don’t use that second one. but still.)
It may be hard to just straight up say you’re not a butch lesbian because your denial of this may come across as homophobic if you don’t deny it in a tasteful manner (”I’m not a lesbian, god no!” not that you’d say that but it’s very possible to create a misunderstanding.) But I would focus on either telling him casually or having your friend do it for you!!
