i love seeing all these “protect trans kids” posts b/c hell yeah protect trans kids, but at the same time it makes me feel vaguely uncomfortable b/c i feel like every time i see posts of solidarity and encouragement towards trans ppl it’s almost always geared towards “trans kids”, “trans children”, “trans youth” etc. and i feel like there’s this subconscious idea that being trans is something for young people/kids/children but not for adults, like trans people just stop after they reach a certain age. but we’re not one-dimensional beings or symbols for young radical freedom. we’re not all youth. we’re also adults with a future, with a middle age, with an old age. i support young trans people and i stand with them fiercely and proudly but “trans” =/= “young” and i want them to know that they have a future too

A bi trans boy is the head of his school’s engineering club. The club members working on a project for the big competition are all best friends who have known each other for some time, but our protagonist keeps flirting with his crush, who keeps flirting back. The other members find it hilarious.
