or that he's girly or not manly

Let Laurent be masculine

Okay but I think people are forgetting that Laurent isn’t a feminine man by any means…he’s actually kind of fuckin manly. He’s built like the statue of David, described to have broad shoulders, a cut body and not to mention the strength to whirl around a 500lb+ horse while cutting down soldiers with one arm.

Damen used to chase after gladiators for crying out loud. You know he’s gotta admire Laurent’s body for how sporty and strong it is. He’s not like this…slight, soft-bellied boy I tend to see around the fandom. The super long hair, the soft body, always making him bottom (did we forget he nearly topped Damen if not for some rude premature climaxing)…

idk I feel like Laurent is being feminized into very boring, stereotypical role where there always has to be “a girl” of the relationship. And I feel like with all the different ways Pacat described him she was very careful about trying to avoid this very thing! Laurent may be a prettyboy but that doesn’t mean he isn’t masculine af too. I just don’t want his awesome character to fall into the same void that nearly every other ‘bottom designated’ gay man gets in any given fandom. 

So in light of recent events, one thing was made perfectly clear and I feel so damn justified now.

I always have Yuuri either doing the lifts or wanting to do the lifts in my YOI fics. And always did I get people claiming that ‘there is no way Yuuri could hold up Victor for even a second’ or ‘it’s not something that fits his soft character’. What is going on is some heteronormative BS. Yuuri is the more physically dainty of the two and people either intentionally or unintentionally, assigned an assumed feminine role to him. Lack of obvious masculine traits or whatever, obviously makes him the Sub or Uke in the relationship. The weak girl so to speak.

There are people who look at same sex couples and will ask who is the guy position during sex and who is the girl. Instead of just thinking ‘sex’ they assign age old gender roles to the couple and determine based on height, body mass, hair, eyes, facial structure, voice, and even other things, on who is the ‘girl’ and who is the ‘guy’. It’s intrusive and annoying.

Katsuki Yuuri:

  • Is muscular and capable of keeping two grown men parallel to the floor while holding both of them up with only his arms and hands.
  • Is sassy and willing to take control of the situation if need be. Will give orders.
  • Has an amazingly toned body that is capable of several types of dance as well as a demanding sport.
  • Has a voice that can go deep instantly.

He’s also very emotional and kind and has a big heart that he wears on his sleeve. Just because the list of ‘masculine traits’ isn’t obvious upon first glance, doesn’t mean those traits does exist in him.

Yuuri does not need to be ‘obviously’ anything in order to be a strong character. Just because he has emotions and is nice to people and shorter, doesn’t mean he is suddenly the ‘bottom’ or the ‘girl position’ in their relationship. Saying that doing physically demanding tasks usually assigned to masculine roles, isn’t ‘capable of being part of his character’ is ridiculous and I’m sick of seeing it.

  1. ‘He’s too girly to be able to do that.’
  2. ‘Yuuri is more gentle and wouldn’t ever do such rough guy things.’
  3. ‘Yuuri needs to be protected because he’s smaller and weaker.’
  4. ‘Yuuri wouldn’t be able to handle the dangers of the military.’
  5. ‘He’s so small someone could hurt him!’
  6. ‘Why do people always make him stronger than he is? He’s not strong, he’s practically a twig. Victor would be better at it.’
  7. ‘It’s out of character to make Yuuri weight lift. That’s for manly men and he’s a figure skater.’
  8. ‘Yuuri is too sweet and it would be dangerous for him to drink beer at a bar.’

And so on and so forth are examples I’ve been given in reviews and comments.

The comic has Yuuri lifting Victor high. Boom!

I was completely in canon with my belief and am so damn happy. Also, Yuuri continuing to break gender norms will always be my cup of tea.

hey just some thoughts from your local lesbian

when i thought i was bi, i described it as “i like girls, and nb people, and guys.” but when i thought more deeply into who i found attractive and those patterns, i realized what i meant was “i like all girls, and female-aligned nb people, and i guess i could date a guy if he was really feminine”

i realized that when i thought about pretty girls, a huge variety came to mind. butch girls, femme girls, neither, in between, fat, short, thin, tall, hairy…you name it. but when i thought about attractive men, there was a set image of men that i thought i found attractive – i could date a submissive, clean-shaven, thin, quiet guy…all feminine stereotypes. i could date a guy as long as he wasn’t…manly. i thought this was just a ~type, but eventually i realized that i didn’t want to date a Girly Guy…i wanted to date a GIRL.

and there’s a mile of difference between “guys are tolerable” and “i like guys.”

so yea this is rambly but i hope it made a little sense. and if you’re feeling something similar, it’s worth it to think more in-depth about whether you just have a Preference or if that attraction simply isn’t there

Feminine Who? -Yugyeom (Got7)

I just like to think about the fact that Barba is close to his mom and grandmother, heavily into fashion and classy eating, and enjoys musicals but is never portrayed as anything less for it.

He’s constantly surrounded by women, his closest companion from SVU is a woman whom he enjoys meeting up with and shares some pretty deep stuff with, and it’s never pointed at like “He’s less of a man because he surrounds himself with all this girly stuff.” He wears pink, takes care of his girls, still calls his mother “Mami” (or “Mommy” phonetically), and honestly couldn’t give a shit what others would think of him for it and deeply loves his job and that’s all that matters.

He’s hella manly not in spite of, but because he has all these things going on in his life and thinks nothing of it and doesn’t give in to the toxic masculinity ideal. And aside from his intelligence and driven personality, that’s what I love about Barba the most.

gifs are not mine.

Will and Elizabeth’s reaction to your and Henry’s relationship would include:

  • Them being extremely proud of their son to find such a literate and intelligent young woman
  • You being quite nervous about meeting them for the first time
  • “I really can’t understand why you’re stressing out so much. They’ll love you.”
  • And they sure as hell did
  • Sometimes Will and Elizabeth look at the two of you chatting or lightly cuddling and remember themselves in their younger days
  • What makes them tell you stories about their adventures
  • You being mesmerized about their marriage, especially about the fact that they married during a battle
  • Henry quietly watching you with a little smile while you listen to his parents’ stories
  • Having girly talks with Elizabeth while Henry and Will are occupied with manly things
  • She tells you the story about how she met Will and how they came to be together in the first place
  • “Henry is much like his father - he’ll do anything for the person he loves.”

all your faves are trans Percy? Trans Anna Beth? Trans Piper? Trans anyways could I get some more trans headcanons *wiggles eyebrows*

all my faves are trans as hell, bruh!!!! 😎 im always up for givin trans headcanons!

trans percy who takes advantage of being able to swim in a binder because his clothes dont get wet when he’s underwater. he’s ecstatic, because he loves being underwater and he hates not binding and now the water even heals his wounds so he can stay in his binder even LONGER underwater and have it still be safe binding and- well, he’s very excited. sometimes, though, he does take it off to swim with the other/younger trans kids at camp. he knows hes something of a Big Time Hero, so he figures he can use that to their advantage and help them accept themselves. he may not like his body, but he can help them learn to like their own.

trans annabeth and trans clarisse who both come out as trans girls around the same time without the other knowing and so they both show up to the campfire dressed the way they want to for the first time, clarisse’s short hair pulled back in a bandana headband and annabeth’s in grey ribbon. they look at eachother like “what the heck??” and even though they dont get along, they sit next to eachother and stick close together for most of their time at camp half blood. they’re rivals, but not in this. they’ve always been cousins, but now they’re sisters in something that feels even bigger than divine blood. they dont have to like eachother to support and protect eachother.

trans nico who feels like a freak. bianca keeps trying to convince him to go with her, please, the hunters can be a safe place for us! but he tells her no. it feels wrong to be like that, among women when he feels so out of place there. later, after he runs away and percy seems him again for the first time, he’s shocked by nico’s self-cut short hair and too-big boys clothes. it takes a long time for nico to understand himself, but less than most people. not many know this, but the dead are good company. their stories hold him in a place of belonging, they speak in old tongues of skin that felt so wrong on their bones. “but you can make it a home,” they tell him. “like a bird bites holes into a cactus to create shelter from the storm, you can make it a home. nico’s father makes sure he has a binder, that he never uses bandages or other unsafe methods. he’s seen enough kids in his realm to know that children like nico need support. he wont let nico turn into another sad, transclucent face in the fields of asphodel. not over this. and neither will nico.

trans piper mclean who fights tooth and nail to be as ‘girly’ as possible, and when that doesnt work, fights to be as piper as possible. if they wont accept her as they want her to be then screw that - she’ll be herself. she’ll wear her biker boots and her big, “manly” coat and her skirts that are too long and her skirts that are too short. she’ll wear her hair cut short in the way that made grandpa tom cry with old tears and yet tears of pride too. “your blood will always fight” he tells her, one of the last things he tells her. “i was certain you would sing our songs but instead you sing your own.” there is mourning in his voice and there is mourning im her heart when he passes. she cuts her hair once more unevenly when his spirit leaves the body, and that is the last time for a very, very long time. her uneven hair grows unevenly and she stops thinking about rebelling and she stops thinking about conforming. she sees her sister, drew, trans like her and fierce like her with something broken and angry in her too and piper’s caring heart finally knows rest. she finds the love she wishes she always had, the acceptance. she saves the goddamned world and it isnt about being what people do or dont want to see. it was about those kids at camp, like drew, with the sad eyes and the bitter tongues. kids like her that cut their hair and made their grandpas cry. it was for love - love for others and love for herself.

im feeling a lot of emotion now wtf…. this started off pretty benign and then as i got into it i slowly started making it almost autobiographical alfjakf oopsies - mod will

anonymous asked:

Hiya. So im genderfluid and having a dysphoric day. Any chance for maybe transboy dean being comforted by cas??? Maybe someone calls him a girl by mistake and it just hits him?

Aw I’m sorry :( that sucks. I’ll try my best!


Dean had been having an okay day. They were at Cas’s parents house for the fourth of July weekend and things had been going great.

“I’m sorry Cas, but I hate your asshole sister,” Dean said, rubbing at the tear tracks left on his face.

“I know, baby. I’m sorry. She said she wasn’t coming and then showed up at the last minute,” Cas replied, pulling Dean into his arms.

“I just… Why does she insist on calling me your girlfriend? I’m here in my swim trunks, I don’t even have boobs anymore, like what is her problem?” Dean mumbled into Cas’s neck.

“I’m so sorry, Dean. I don’t think she did it on purpose,” Cas said.

“Not trying hard enough to not call me your girlfriend is a conscious choice,” Dean said, frowning. He crossed his arms and pulled away from Cas, “It’s fourth of July, we’re meant to be having fun.”

“I didn’t mean to make excuses for her, babe. I just don’t think she’s being malicious.”

“It feels like she is,” Dean said, “I know I still have kinda girly eyes and lips, but like… I look like a dude, more now that ever! Right?”

“I’m sorry. You do look like a dude, and your eyes aren’t girly because they’re yours, and you’re not a girl, okay? You have manly eyes that happen to sparkle like emeralds. I don’t know why Hester has so much trouble with this. What can I do to make it better?”

“Let’s have loud gay sex right here,” Dean said.


“On her car?”


“Okay, final offer, we go to her house and I fuck you in her bed.”


“Okay, fine. Whatever. I didn’t want to bang you anyways.”

“How about we go enjoy the sunshine, and eat a lot, and prank my brother. I’ll pull Hester aside and let her know what she did and that it’s not okay. She’ll apologize once she realizes, I know she will. Don’t let her ruin your holiday,” Cas said, “And then when we get home later we can have loud gay sex.”

“Hmm…,” Dean said, pouting, “Okay. But I don’t want to talk to her today. She can write me an apology. And also I want chocolates - from her, not you. Although if you want to get me some also, I guess I would be okay with that.”

“Alright, deal. I’ll make it happen. Wanna go eat hot dogs suggestively?” Cas asked.

“Hell yeah,” Dean replied, taking Cas by the hand and leading the way out into the back yard. 

Marco Is Non-Binary

If you think Marco is trans, great, go ahead, but I’m going to disagree with you. I mean, sure, Marco could be female on the inside. I believe it is a possibility, but personally I have a different theory. Marco is non-binary. I don’t know if it’s genderfluid or non-gendered (probably genderfluid) but I believe Marco is non-binary.

Why? Well, Marco actively does take an interest in things that are both “manly” and “girly” (not saying a girl can’t like manly stuff or vice versa, but, well, Marco really liked ‘his’ 30 year old body, and ‘he’ obviously had complete freedom for its aesthetic).

Also, the few times Marco does take on female terminology, it usually due to the context. Marco wants to be queen, but that’s just continuing on in the conversation, as they were talking about Star becoming queen. Marco just stuck with the same pronouns. In the recent episode with Heinous, it’s obvious she never clued in that Marco was born a boy, and Marco’s expression had a moment of “what? I’m not - oh whatever” and so the use of female pronouns stuck.

Let’s also look at 30 year old Marco because, as I mentioned, ‘he’ had complete control over how it turned out. If Marco was trans, I feel like it would’ve been more clear - a different hairstyle, a different outfit (if Marco was a girl at heart, I can’t imagine that vest being okay. Not without something to tie it in the front at least a little). No, its a very manly outfit and 30!Marco had stubble (I will pass that as due to not having time to shave). Other things, however, lean towards a more girlish look - the earrings, the design of the tattoo. Other things I probably can’t think of right now.

Basically, Marco generally gravitates towards “manly” things, but also enjoys more “girlish” things to. There are lots of little examples of that, and none of them are played off as pointing to a specific gender even if they can be read as such. They’re just MARCO THINGS.

That’s why I think Marco is non-binary and likely genderfluid. While usually going around as a guy, Marco will easily switch to female if its easiest to do in context. Marco has only identified as female if female terms were used previously by another character. So Marco isn’t trans, ‘he’s’ non-binary.

Edit: Due to the fandom basically having “trans!Marco” as the exact same thing as “fem!Marco” or “genderbent!Marco”, I use it as a term to reference that. I’m fully aware that the umbrella term of “trans” applies to non-binary people. “Trans” here is used purely to reference the popular fan theory.

So Much For Inconspicuous

Request/Prompt: Hi there! Can I request a Logan X reader with “You know the key to a happy marriage, kid? Never try to assemble furniture together.” please?

Note: On it. AU where Jean and Scott are married.

“UGH! SCOTT, THAT DOESN’T GO THERE!” Jean squealed her voice muffled by the closed door. You and Logan were walking down the hall when she shouted. You were a student at the school for mutants; you were bubbly and always happy - something that contradicted Logan’s blunt and thoughtless personality. Despite your contrast in personalities, you had soft spots for each other. You were each others favourite student/teacher.

“I THINK I KNOW WHERE IT GOES!” Scott replied, there were lots of loud bangs coming from their room. Logan turned to you, his bushy brow raised, causing lines on his forehead to appear. You shrugged your shoulders and pointed to the couple’s door. He shrugged his shoulders, too, then made the ‘shh’ motion by putting his finger to his lips. You nodded. The pair of you, then, pressed your ears against the door. “YA KNOW, THIS KIND OF JOB WAS ORIGINALLY A MAN’S JOB!”

“I BET I COULD DO A BETTER JOB BY MYSELF!” Jean screeched, her voice competing with her spouse’s. You, silently, turned the handle on the door and crept in; Logan following closely behind you.

The two of you tip-toed across the carpet, looking for the wedded couple. “OF COURSE YOU COULD!” Scott shouted, from the next room. You giggled, they regularly had arguments about who could do what and how well they could get a job done. Logan grinned from beside you. 

You know the key to a happy marriage, kid?” Logan whispered into your ear. Your eyebrows furrowed in confusion and you looked up to him, shaking your head. “Never try to assemble furniture together.” He finished and you giggled quietly, throwing your hand over your mouth trying to stop the sound from escaping. Logan smiled at you. He pointed behind you, to a mirror. You turned to look at it and saw a reflection of the room they were in; you watched them as they argued while trying to put something together.

“Let’s go,” he whispered, motioning towards the door. He snook over to the exit; trying to avoid being noticed by the angry couple. He indicated for you to come over too. You edged closer to the door but you, unbelievably, managed to knock over a vase on your way out. It hit the ground with a crash; you and Logan took that as your indication to leave and you took off down the hall. You giggled your girly giggle while he chuckled his manly chuckle. You believed you had made it out and they would never know that you were there until-

“You must be incredibly stupid if you thought I wouldn’t find out,” Jean spoke out into your mind. Alarmed, you turned to Logan who also had the same expression as you. He smirked, nonchalantly.

“Well,” you began, clapping your hands once, grabbing his attention, “so much for inconspicuous.”

“We need to get out of here.” Scott huffs, groaning under his breath at every inch Stiles moves. You inch closer between the two of them, gently placing your head between both of theirs, “my pussy tastes like Pepsi Cola.” You mumble in a sing-song voice, earning a loud roar of laughter from everyone on and off set. “Goddammit Y/N!” Dylan laughs, pretending to be annoyed for messing up your line. You throw your head back in amusement, Tyler still trying to catch his breath from laughing so much. Your body shakes with laughter as you take a step back. You quickly grab hold of the backs of Dylan and Tyler’s shirt, falling down the steps of the coach and onto the ground—Dylan and Tyler piling on top of you.

anonymous asked:

I never understood why people say that Freed looks girly anyway. Is it his long hair? I bet if he had short hair people wouldn't say that he looks more feminine. Only yesterday I saw a post arguing that Freed does but the arguments were kinda weird and invalid b/c it was anime comparions and something about Freed having a rounder face or not-masculine clothes what isn't even a thing so I got kinda confused lol but whatever

Ah I believe I know which post you are referring to but yesterday I didn’t have the energy to comment/join the discussion so I just left it at that.

Anyway, much like you do I think it has to do a lot with his long hair and stereotypes (which is p dumb). I mean, we HAVE seen him with short hair

and um no, i cannot see anything ‘girly’ here either. To me he looks like a serious mafia guy who’s handsome and beautiful all the same. And the change of his hair length does NOT change anything about his facial features, obviously.

So I think many just go ahead and blame the long hair or ‘think’ it because of the long hair. Long hair on men is a discussed topic I think and there’s two opinions; either it looks good or it does not and Freed certainly rocks it. Hell, in some cultures long hair on men is/was considered a sign of strength and manliness. And nowadays is becoming more acceptable again, I think perfect examples are Brock O’Hurn or Gil Ofarim lmao.

About the face shapes, idk man I can’t really say something about this because honestly Mashima himself keeps changing them up in all of charas, it’s never 100% constant.

he has more time/more detailed work when he draws his twitter sketches of one single character because obviously one character is less work/and he’s more time for it than getting 20 pages of a chapter done with many characters. And Mashima gave us this blessing

Holy hot damn So I mean look at him?? Wtf he’s so handsome and he has the more oval/sharper face shape here as well and you get a better idea of his body statue as well (now knowing that this coat hides those nicely tones abs and arm muscles)

About his clothes uh well I don’t see anything feminine about it nor abt any of his behavior he is shown so I kinda do not get that too? No need to say more here I think. xD

The one facial feature that makes him look a bit ‘softer’ (idk what word to use lmao) to some is probably his added lashes but again, that’s not a women-only thing, he’s not an exception. Two examples:

At some point I had thought maybe it could be the eyebrows too but then I noticed lmao no literally 90% of the guys have thin eyebrows except for Laxus (and probably Orga).

So yes, Mashima did great with his design honestly and balancing out his long hair and facial features. I’ve seen guys with long hair that really honestly looked really feminine (which is not bad btw, men can have feminine touches and females can have masculine touches that’s just natural and does not equal x looks like a girl/x looks like a man, just to clarify!!)

Thank you.

“He’s not girly in the slightest, he’s…he’s actually quite manly he’s just pretty….really pretty but he doesn’t look like a girl I don’t know where people are getting that.”

bootyshakerkegrimm  asked:

Since it says requests are open, can you do hcs for Kirishima and Shinso where their s/o gives them something cute and a little girly to keep on them to remind them of s/o when they are apart? Sorry if tjis sounds dumb.

It doesn’t sound dumb at all! I really appreciate the request. :)

And yaaaaaas shinsou is my bias

Kirishima Eijiro

  • He would be kind of embarrassed but in a warm, fuzzy way. After all it is a miniature teddy bear with a bright pink bow so it isn’t very manly but it came from his s/o. How could he refuse?
  • Whenever he gets really lonely he strokes the teddy bear’s fur and imagines its him stroking his s/o’s hair.
  • Would brag about it to his friends, despite how ridiculous they think it is.

Shinsou Hitoshi

  • Would treasure it. It’s one of the best presents anyone has ever given him and he’s happy to have it.
  • He would carry the teddy bear in his bag at all times because it was like having a piece of his s/o with him.
  • He’d tease his s/o about how girly it is…even though he secretly loves it.
  • Would have it next to his bed so that if he ever sleeps when he sleeps it’s the last thing he sees.

Saito was hard for me to draw. It was the hair mainly. I have a hard time drawing long hair on guys without it looking girly.

I showed the first one to my sister when I finished, because she asked me to draw Saito next. And she said that he didn’t look very manly.

So I tried again.  I don’t know if I actually did a good job on it, but I tried. 


a random list of all the sawamura eijuns that i think about

  • sawamura eijun with his hair pushed back 
  • sawamura “wait i have to pet this dog and play with him a little bit before i move on” eijun 
  • sawamura eijun: great with kids, or just one of the kids?

  • aka that is in fact a real thing. 
  • alternative medicine major, sawamura eijun. university au. in which eijun loves taking care of his sick flatmates because this means a chance to try out all these home remedies he’s come up with. and oh my god, they all taste so disgusting and sometimes they’d much rather stay sick than have to drink that weird concoction eijun’s made for them. but holy shit, it actually works. 
  • literature major, sawamura eijun. i just love eijun + books. as much as i love eijun + shoujo manga, i love eijun + classical/historical literature more. i thought it was adorable how he was reading the book of five rings during his yips. i actually tried to read that book, and holy hell it was boring af. and remember the time he tried to pick up crime and punishment ????

Imagine that Carl has really curvy hips, and he hates it, because he always wanted to have a manly body, like his dad, Abraham and Daryl. But he has curvy -almost girly- hips, so he tries to hide them, using large T-shirts, big pants and flannels.

When he got to the sanctuary, his flannel got covered in blood. So when the saviour’s leader got him into his room and he was about to sit on the couch, Negan stopped him.

“Take off that shirt, boy” he told him “Don’t want you leaving blood into my precious couch”

Carl wasn’t thinking in his curvy hips in that moment, he was too busy thinking in the possibilities of him not coming back to Alexandria, at least not alive. So he took his flannel off and for the first time since puberty he didn’t worried about his curvy hips, not until Negan made a comment about it.

“Well damn, little Grimes!” he said “You have more hips than half of my wives!”
