i keep trying 2 articulate my thoughts on my Victimhood n the Victim/Survivor dichotomy as well as how gender and gendered violence has impacted me as a closeted trans woman/gender non conforming individual and how that relates to my abuse and my experiences with Personal + Institutional violence and where the line between those is blurred but really truly and honestly? all of that can be summarized with: I really need therapy
Full offense, but butchness has absolutely nothingto do with men. At all. Butches aren’t defined by any comparison to men, nor are they defined by any comparison to society’s cishet ideas of “masculinity”.
It’s not about the separation of
(our society’s cishet conceptions of)
“masculinity” vs. “femininity”. It’s not about “masculine women”. It’s not about “women who want to ‘be’ men”. It’s not about men.
It’s about women’s reclamation of “womanhood” and “what it means to be a woman” from a cishet dominated society’s ideals and conceptions of those very things. Its about non-conforming for reasons such as comfort, happiness, communication, and freedom of personal expression.
It is about women, and their love for other women. Period.

· Paint your nails with a clear coat of nail polish
· wear “Manly” Jewelery like a shark tooth necklace or a cross necklace (if you’re Religious) or a dog tag, or a mood ring
· wear panties under your Boxers or pants
· wear a cupless sports bra under your shirt
· wear slightly tinted chapstick
· wear eyeshadow that is a shade close to your skin tone
· paint your toenails & keep them hidden from unsupportive people under your socks
Though we recognize that the LBGTQ+ community makes up a lot of the Youtube community and content, we will be limiting the vocality this community has. We appreciate all of the work you’ve done to make Youtube an inclusive, diverse and vibrant community, but the gay agenda has become too powerful and we believe that we’re the sole cause of it, which is why we have decided to implement Restricted Mode on LGBTQ+ content. Please, though, let it be known that we are not silencing the community, we are only placing age restrictions because being a member of the LGBTQ+ is inappropriate, gives false information, and may be damaging to younger viewers, who benefit the most from the videos put out from this community. This is being done with the intention of protecting a select few, but god forbid anyone gets worked up over trans people asking to be able to use the bathroom that they identify as without being persecuted or harmed. After all, why should we grant such special rights to such a miniscule group in the vast majority?
Binding tips from gc2b for all you trans dudes and other individuals who bind! Gc2b binders are great and not super expensive, halves are about $33. They ship in the U.S. and internationally. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking into getting a binder.
Stay safe kiddos!
