I'm a transman and I'd rather get my teeth pulled than go to a RL support group for other transmen. I live in California though so only snowflakes and ultra sensitive liberals go to those here. No idea if that's everywhere or not though, in recent years it seems like the image of the typical transman has been softening and I don't like it.
become a lumberjack in norcal so you can knock out the RL support from ultra sensitive trees in the snowflake filled forests of mount shasta with the lads in ur lumbermill
and fair enough, i can imagine why the typical transman would be softening, because alot of trans people are politically active by the nature of their identity being hotly political, and especially in blue state areas like cali.
The recent development with gender/identity politics is the softening of masculinity (see: bellyaching of “toxic” masculinity) or challenging of male gender roles and expression (see: le nu male and sjw sparkledog aesthetic stereotypes). So naturally i wouldnt be surprised seeing alot of transmen really embrace a sort of feminine expression. I can even imagine them feel pressure not to embrace a hard masculine presentation because of the negative social stigma in these gender groups toward masculinity at the moment. Some could just be afraid to rock the boat and just lay low or play along, least the sjw figures in these support groups yell at them for expressing toxic masculine beliefs.
If not that, i feel they do so because some come to recognize that they really kinda personally got over their long held aversion to feminine shit and kind of embrace it. I know a few, actually that have.
Typically ive seen transmen really kind of SUuuUUuUPER distance themselves from traditional notions of feminine expression and that’s understandable. Once transition is underway or reaCHED COMPLETE GLOBAL SATURATION, one might really want to get away from the gendered expressions that caused them misery.
But honestly, i really dont want to knock on your attitude toward shit, i personally am pretty peeved with the boring assault on traditional masculinity, I just felt up for building upon your observation.
