For all my fellow sapphics and wlws who need a good cheering up, here’s a few songs that are explicitly sapphic or can be interpreted as such, feel free to add on to the playlist
“I just don’t feel like a man or a woman. It’s a bit like Adore – she looks so fucking cute as a boy and then when I see her getting ready I think, ‘OH MY GOD THAT’S A GIRL!’ She goes from boy to girl, but it isn’t drag, it’s pure witchery.”
– Katya, for Gay Times
Confession: I’m transgender, and romancing the iron bull makes me feel so safe, because I know he would accept me if he saw me Irl. Mostly because of how he sees Krem as a real man. I imagine him seeing me as a real woman too…I feel like I can be myself around…You know if he existed.
[image description: 2 selfies of me, OP. Wearing tortoise shell glasses in the first. Wearing a bombass undercut in both.]
So we ended up spending like 6 hourstrying to dye my hair blonde (and my scalp is fried but my hair is softer than ever???) and the cut itself only took about an hour. But also it’s past midnight, so any blue hair dying is going to have to be saved for another day
But I can physically feel the gay increasing in my body and I’m so excited!!
imagine. harry. on stage. titties out. the lights dim. the first notes of Shania Twain’s hit single Man! I Feel Like a Woman fill the theater. spotlight clicks on. harry says slowly into the mike. “lets go girls.” mitch and adam proceed to come out with their instruments in hand. they are wearing cowboy hats. and then as harry sings “i’m going out tonight” he steps into the light and we see he’s wearing kacey’s light up cowgirl boots and a pair of daisy dukes. the crowd goes wild. end imagine.
Ok I'm sorry, this may be a dumb question, but what's the difference between nonbinary and agender? You're the only person I can think of to ask.
Nonbinary simply means you don’t identity strictly as a woman or a man. While agender means you feel no connection to gender aka you don’t have a gender. Also nonbinary is an umbrella term for anyone who isn’t a woman or a man. I feel like I didn’t do a great explaining so I hope people will comment better descriptions.
You do, without the condition you cannot safely transition. If you do not wish to transition, so be it, as transition is not the best option for everyone. This is not an excuse to claim the label of “trans” without having some form of dysphoria.
It is important to define the line between one with a medical condition, and one without a medical condition. You can be whoever you want, but if you need validation by assuming a label that is not yours, then the problem is not us gatekeeping but your lack of self validation.
“I’m not dysphoric because I don’t hate myself”
Dysphoria is not self hatred, it is a feeling of unease towards your primary and/or secondary sex characteristics. This can manifest in discomfort, a lack of recognizing self, or depression and anxiety towards gendered events as your birth gender (example: getting an erection, getting one’s period, having sex, etc ) This is not a be all end all as I am not a doctor and symptoms may manifest in combination. If you think you may be dysphoric, consult a doctor or therapist.
“Being trans is about identifying differently from your birth sex”
Dysphoria causes one to identify outside their birth sex and desire to physically be a sex one is not. It is almost entirely internal and physical, although “social dysphoria” does exist as an additional symptom. It cannot exist on it’s own with trans people. “Identity” in this argument is often described as a “feeling,” thus one should ask themselves “What does ‘I feel like a man/woman.” really mean. If the answer is exclusively anything but “Having X body parts, X sexual characteristics” then you should seriously consider the possibility that your “gender identity” is caused by external factors (IE sexism, feminist views, etc) or another mental condition (gender dysmorphia, social anxiety, life dysphoria, etc).
“Some people don’t want to transition!! Not everyone needs to transition!!”
In a world where transition is free, transition has no medical side effects, transition has no cosmetic side effects, transition is quick, transition has no societal bias associated with it, transition does not sterilize you, transition could be “non binary”, would you transition? If no to all of the above, you need to find yourself a new label and stop appropriating our condition.
“Truscum/Transmeds want nonbinary people to die”
There is little no scientific evidence that nonbinary people exist thus far. Our belief is based on science, so it makes sense that some of us are skeptical of nonbinary people. That does not mean we all are, and plenty of us are fine with nonbinary people. Our beef as a community is with nondysphorics, not nonbinary people.
“Gender is an oppressive social construct that must be dismantled”
Sure, but gender to trans people is so much more than gender roles. Our condition doesn’t stem from society. It stems from ourselves and how we see our own bodies, not from how society sees it.
