Okok so your post about how u can tell when a smutty fic where one character is a trans guy, is written by a cishet writer, really reminded me of how annoyed i get when cishet writers really badly write queer/trans characters facing homo/transphobia. Like reactions to a character coming out are painfully stereotyped and trope-y?
cishet person writing a trans character:
The giant plot-device creature approached the heroes. TransBoi stood, and rushed towards it in an attempt to save the nearby citizens from impending doom. Alas, despite his years of Hero Experience, he didn’t stand a chance against the enormous creature. It roared, flinging TransBoi’s small body across the city block with one firm backhanded slap. TransBoi slammed into a brick wall, instantly crumpling to the ground in pain.
“NO!!” shouted Cis Love Interest, fearing the worst for TransBoi. With one final strike, Cis Love Interest slays the creature in a fit of rage. He begins to make his way over to TransBoi, who is bleeding very badly.
“Are you okay?” asks Cis Love Interest, cradling TransBoi in his big, beefy arms. “Let me remove your clothes– I have to treat your wounds.”
TransBoi stares up at his beautiful beefcake with a look of horror. “No, you can’t–” he begins to protest, but it is Too Late. Cis Love Interest has already begin to remove
TransBoi’s shirt, revealing the ace bandages covering his delicate transgender chest.
Cis Love Interest gasps, alarmed.
TransBoi begins to cry. “I’m so sorry I didn’t tell you this, but I am… I am not a Real Boy. I am transgendered…. you must hate me now. After all, who could ever love a Freak like me, born in a Girl Body? I’m disgusting.”
Cis Love Interest shakes his head. “I’m disappointed in you, TransBoi. Ace bandages, really? You should know better.”
TransBoi blinks his massive doe eyes. “W-what? You mean… you aren’t completely revolted by my existence?”
Cis Love Interest chuckles and shakes his head. He begins stroking TransBoi’s dainty face with his big meaty yaoi claw. “No, TransBoi. I love you, no matter what parts you have. And because I am a Good Cis Ally™, I know what a binder is and I want to buy you one.”
TransBoi is shocked. Even though he’s been transgendered for so long, it never occured to him that he could wear something other than ace bandages. He smiles, slowly. He is so grateful that Cis Love Interest accepts him. Overcome with joy, he kisses Cis Love Interest passionately, on the lips, using tongue, sexily.
“I love you too, Cis Love Interest” whispers TransBoi.

now you're the one who's afraid... because you're going to starve down here
lmfao joke's on you bitch, i already ate your little brother and a whole bunch of other kids, i've had a whole smorgasbord, you and your little bitchass friends were just dessert, i can deal without it lmfao lmfao see y'all in 27 years when i come back to eat your kids
straight-up if u think im ignoring u for a malicious reason, i’m not. my avpd has been off the charts recently & i can’t seem to muster up enough energy to make friends like i tried for a good month & im hella tired y’all im sorry
i just thought of this while having breakfast and i’m kinda dead so i wanted to share the extent of how fucking gross love is. okay so he would definitely be the type to get u a cutie little promise ring like a month into dating & it’s probably engraved w a little outline of a heart (u know…bc his name is LOVE)
How do you think Dami and Jay will react to Tim's 'death'?
With any luck? Extensively.
If I were writing it (which….. might happen, depending on how satisfied I am with the canon portrayal) I would work the historical angles. Both Jason and Damian have had antagonistic relationships with Tim in the past, which could make this interesting.
For Jason, I would take his complex feelings towards his own replacement and redirect them– he’s always been angry at Bruce for letting it happen, but now? Project his own experience with death onto Tim. On top of “how dare you let someone replace me after I died,” it’s “how dare you put another child in a position to die.” The anger’s already there, so you’d get this convoluted tidal wave of strong emotion that would be really interesting to explore– rage, grief, regret about his own treatment of Tim, retroactive parallelism, and a redefinition of his own experience. Good stuff. Aim it at Bruce, shove them together, see what happens.
And Damian… well Damian’s just been through death himself, but more importantly, he’s been through a resurrection. Kid’s grandfather is Ra’s al Ghul– stack that on his own experience, and he’s unlikely to see death as permanent, especially since his own return was a positive one. That makes it really likely that he’ll lean towards denial. If he can come back, why not Drake? The problem, of course, is that they don’t have a body to attempt a resurrection with, which frankly? Is suspicious. I don’t mean in our world, I mean within the DC Universe. Personally, I’d make Damian the one that finds out that Tim isn’t really dead. Someone’s gotta do it, and Damian’s attitude towards life/death makes him a prime candidate.
See it would also be fitting because “he isn’t really dead” is Tim’s line, back when Bruce was fake dead in ‘09. Damian and Tim’s relationship is super complex [read more], and I think it would be fun to play with Damian intentionally taking on Tim’s roles– clearly he’s got a background in that (Robin), but this time intentionally, for Tim’s benefit.
I would love to see the arc move in that direction.
