I fully support boys wearing pink and florals and other girly things. Don’t let anyone tell y'all you can’t wear what you want because you look great in those things. there is a long standing bias that pink is girly and being girly is negative but that’s not true!! Colors don’t have genders and genders don’t need to wear certain colors💕
It’s actually so refreshing to see two guys in the public eye with a huge audience not be afraid to dress up and not say anything about being “too girly” while doing so.
This is not to imply what they were doing in the ‘pastel edits irl’ video was specifically ‘feminine’ or ‘traditionally female’ - I just mean it’s nice (and important) to see them be open to wearing clothes/colours people would typically associate with “girls” and instead just forget about that and enjoy themselves - whilst also being open about how it feels…even if some of their comments were exaggerated for entertainment - it’s still just nice and reassuring!
Generally (outside of the video too), Dan & Phil are very open-minded about a lot of things to do with gender, gender roles, gender presentation and expression etc - and speak about it often in recent years.
I know the video may not really be that…. ~deep~ to many but this is something that’s been on my mind for a while when it comes to D&P and I just wanted to talk about it more after that video posted tonight.
Overall, I’m very grateful to have D&P to look up too. I don’t think they realise what even their ‘silly’ dress up videos can do for viewers like me - who are questioning their assigned gender and the struggles that brings internally and from society - and even those who just have difficulties with embracing the gender expression/presentation they find most comfortable.
can people stop portraying east asian boys in such… feminized or subservient ways??? especially when their actual personalities/appearances are nothing like that??? e asian boys are already routinely emasculated and fetishized for being submissive or innocent like Cal m Down,, pause the anime,,
Whether I’m doing a photoshoot, singing, or performing on stage, there are a lot of times where I’m in charge of lovable, cute part — so people see me as being really girly. Actually, I like the feel of androgynous concepts more. So there’s a difference between my image and actual self.
Never feel you must identify as non-binary, agender, gender-neutral, genderqueer, or any other option outside your natural sex. Even if:
You don’t “feel like a girl.”
You have little or no interest in sex or relationships with boys or girls.
You dislike makeup, feminine clothing, and “being girly.”
You are uncomfortable with your body.
You are uncomfortable with how others view your body.
You enjoy doing “boy” things and feeling powerful and in control.
All of these things are perfectly normal for a women to feel, and due to our highly gendered society can sometimes seem unbearable. I know. I have been there. But creative, intelligent, strong, kind, and fiercely unique and independent women have always existed - and you can, too, just as you are.
Harriet Tubman, Marie Curie, Frida Kahlo, Agatha Christie, Sally Ride, Rachel Maddow, Georgia O’Keefe, Abby Wambach, Amelia Earhart, Malala Yousafzai and so many others are here for you - however you want to express yourself, whoever you want to be.
It isn’t always easy, but it’s worth it. So worth it. Hang in there. <3
pansy prefers pastel colors (mostly pinks and grays) to darker colors. she loves mini skirts (like those cute white pleated tennis skirts), fuzzy pom poms, coral lipstick, and the smell of chanel (no. 5), but that doesn’t mean she won’t throw on a leather jacket just for fun. she wears doc martens, but she can pull off either the red vegans or the pastel bubblegum. the best part about pansy parkinson is that she isn’t afraid to be girly, because being girly doesn’t mean you don’t know how to kick some ass.
