masc fem

anonymous asked:

isn't it kind of not really feminist to associate the colour pink with being feminine anyway like pink is a colour it's for anyone it doesn't necessarily have to be a fem or masc or whatever idk idk i thought your spread was lovely anyway

ya I mean I get the gender roles thing with the pink being associated with girls and blue being associated with boys in our society but honestly I think anyone should be free to like any color they want like it’s not that big of an issue?? Like you’re not a bad person if you’re a girl and pink is your favorite color

daily reminder that gnc trans ppl exist and we arent just faking being trans !

a gnc trans boy who only likes to wear dresses and skirts and who does his makeup all the time is still a boy!

a gnc trans girl with short hair and who only wears masculine clothing and never presents feminine is still a girl!

being gender nonconforming is not a cis only experience and trans people who are gnc are still 100% trans and 100% wonderful

DISTANCE DEGREES IN DEMONSTRATIVE ADJECTIVES/PRONOUNS

English has only a two level distinction: this and that. Older forms of English had a three-way distinction: this, that and yonder. 


Portuguese (and Spanish very similarly) have a 3 degree distinction:

  • near me (~here): este, esta, isto
  • near you (~there): esse, essa, isso
  • far from us (yonder~over there): aquele, aquela, aquilo 

French has only one demonstrative: ce/cet (masc.), cette (fem.), ces (plural), and one has to add an adverb of location to make it preciser: ce…ci, ce…là (ça). The same holds true for German and other scandinavian languages.

If you know the languages in blank, please help me fill them up. 

Nonbinary positivity time!

🐉 Nonbinary is a perfectly valid identity all on its own.

🐉 Nonbinary people exist.

🐉 They’re perfect.

🐉 Nonbinary people don’t need your permission.

🐉 Nonbinary people are welcome to use any pronouns they like.

🐉 Nonbinary people can be as fem, masc, or androgynous as they want and still be nonbinary.

🐉 There’s no such thing as a wrong way to be nonbinary.

🐉 Nonbinary people are magical and worthy of love and respect.

heads up

i’m gonna be trying out he/him pronouns for a little bit so yeah! i still like they/them, but i’ve been thinking about it lately and i want to see if i like masculine pronouns. i hope you all have a good week!

Mask of Center

I mostly present as masculine of center

Like I would wear a paper mask

And pretend it makes me safer

When I use the pants bathroom

When I call out people who misgender me

Like it adds legitimacy to my

Defending my gender identity.

 .

Cause every time there are two

Bathroom options and I have to chose

I opt for the pants, although I am perceived as an invader

As someone who has to be confronted.

I am told that I’ve entered the wrong gendered space

Which is pretty insulting cause

Either you think I can’t decypher signs on doors

Either you think you know my gender better than I do

I face the insult added to the injury

Cause in the skirts bathroom, no one

Thinks twice to gender me as female.

 .

Thus I present as androgynous as

This weird way of protecting myself.

You see, androgyny is the equivalent

Of a gender role for us non binary folks.

And androgyny is a better sounding

Synonym for masculine of center ;

That is, a tale of menswear and

Dapperness and button-down shirts.

The word “androgyny” evacuates the power dynamics

In our fem-erasing queer communities…

So I’ll call my gender expression what it is:

It is masculine of center.

 .

Anyways. I wear this mask of center

To fit into another neat box

Although I came out of the closet

To escape those two tiny boxes I felt trapped in

 .

What the fuck am I doing ?

What’s the point of being out if I am limiting myself

To a gender expression that only suits me some of the time

Mostly so I can pee and correct people ?

 .

Maybe it’s okay because I

Am doing what I have to, to survive

In this binary, binary world

But it means lying to myself.

 .

I want to present in a truly androgynous manner

Wear button-down shirts and long skirts

And bright lipstick with a van dyke beard

And Doc Marten or high heels

Depending on how I feel

 .

I want to live my beautiful complex gender

Instead of hiding it behind this mask of center

I want to truly be gender non conforming

I want to look how I feel

Instead of being scared

I want to breathe not bind

And thrive not hide.

 .

anonymous asked:

Okay this is extremely important. I am FUCKING PISSED because YouTube is censoring all videos of the lgbtqiapd+ community especially the trans community!! They are age restricting packer reviews, binders, funny parody videos, hormone updates, top and bottom surgery updates, dysphoria discussion, support groups, trans resources, gender neutral/masc/fem clothing/passing videos, and even coming out videos. It's like they are trying to erase us when people need to this information desperately.

Yeah, I know. This kind of queerphobic bullshit is ridiculous.

They are getting a lot of backlash from it though, so there is a small chance they might come to their senses and fix the new restricted mode so that videos with queer topics aren’t automatically hidden.

But I mean, it’s not like people are going to stop using YouTube, no matter what they do or don’t do. So I suppose they feel they don’t have anything to risk by doing things like this.
