I think one of the reasons helping my friends with the Genders or even just the thoughts about the Genders is so important to me is because it flashes me back to when I was a little cisboy, trying so hard, so GODDAMN hard to be a man. I was trying to fit every niche, play every game, do all the right things, and never quite finding anything that felt real. And I really truly believed I was a boy back then. I wanted to be. But manhood is empty, masculinity is hollow, and has nothing to fulfill you without first destroying yourself before its altar, but I couldn't do that. I don't want my friends to do that, especially if they have even an inkling of doubt about their place as "Men". I will help them away from that.
