Masculinity can be soft. Masculinity can be gentle. Masculinity can be whispers and shyness and pastel colours and flowers and all those things can be masculine if someone wants them to call them that. Masculinity and femininity are constructs - you don’t have to describe yourself or anything you like as either if you don’t want to.
Context: My character is a druid dragonborn whose call to Druidism was seeing the majesty of a dragon. She has a tendency to panic-transform into random creatures she has seen. She also only has 9 hp in base form.
DM: you encounter some quite terrifying and strong orcs.
Chao-evil Bard: I use the druid as a shield.
DM: roll initiative to struggle.
DM: you use her as a shield.
Me: can I roll to transform out of panic?
Me: I’ve seen a crow, a parrot, a kitten, and a dragon. Can I roll to panic-transform?
DM: wh- sure, go ahead. Roll for fear.
Paladin: critical transformation!
DM: *is done with my bs* roll to confirm a critical.
Me: *Nat20 true critical, the DM looks so angry*
DM: …fine. In a somehow critical transformation, the druid you were using as a shield transforms into a half-sized dragon in front of you. Roll strength to hold on.
Bard: *giving me the most angry look, rolls a 3* fuck.
Me: *shit eating grin* i intimidate the orcs into running away.
DM: just fucking roll, man.
*the paladin is cackling*
Me: *rolls a 17*
DM: *sighs* the orcs flee, two of them piss themselves, and they drop some of their gold and equipment on the way out.
