steve tran

Steve Trevor is definitely trans hear me out

- I’m going through this scene by scene y’all get ready

- Kay so, when diana rescues him he’s immediately anxious when she asks him “You’re a man…?” I could almost taste the “oh god am I suddenly not passing??” fear in his eyes

- He doesn’t say something like “of course I am” or “yes haven’t you ever seen a man??” instead he goes straight for “Yeah, uhm…don’t I look like one?” this is not something a cis man worries about

- Side note: if y’all come at me with “oh he says steve is his name when they use the lasso of truth on him so he must be cis” l i s ten his name is steve. Why would he answer that question any other way? Also, I’d like to note, in the comics when Batman was asked the same question while holding the lasso of truth, he answered with Batman, not Bruce Wayne. The lasso makes you answer what YOU believe is the truth. Steve’s deadname isn’t his “true name” steve trevor is obv

- Consider: we know there were LOTS of women who cross-dressed in wwI in order to fight. What if that’s what steve did to join the military when he was much younger, but then he realized oh…maybe there’s more here going on than I thought

- HRT became available after WWII largely due to this guy, and in this superhero universe of Scientific Inaccuracies and Magical Goddesses Made From Clay, it’s not entirely implausible that HRT couldn’t have become available a few decades earlier in some capacity (alan hart is amazing, please read more about him)

- Okay, the bathroom scene: Steve panics at first when diana walks in on him, because he’s like SHIT CANT REVEAL MY WEIRD JUNK but when its clear shes not going to be weird about it, he stops trying to hide

- diana specifically says “are you considered average for your sex” not gender. And we know from later during the scene on the boat that she must know the difference, because she read the 12 volume collection on genitals and what you can do with them

- So diana’s like “well that’s not what I was expecting at all” and what she says is basically the more subtle, educated way of saying: dude why don’t you have a penis and balls

- And when steve answers above average, he’s basically saying “yeah, im trans, go me, deal with it”

- Just saying, him being trans makes this entire interaction and every one after that where steve is trying to explain western gender norms to diana significantly more hilarious

- Moving on: the boat. Diana asks about marriage and Steve answers two people go in front of a judge etc etc. then when she asks why they get married, even if they’re unhappy, steve says he doesn’t know. Marriage is as mystifying to him as it is to her. If that isn’t queer then idk what queer is

- The “this confuses me just as much as it does you” look on his face throughout this entire interaction

- His interest in her books about sex: as a trans man in an age when sex for the pleasure of vagina owners was basically unheard of/considered sinful, of course he’s interested

- The soft “no” when she says the books ultimately say men are unnecessary for pleasure; no as in utter disbelief, more like “no way can I read this??” than “no omg sex needs a penis and a vagina what are you talking about”

- Lastly: it makes SO much sense for steve to become a spy. Trans people are excellent liars. They have to be in order to survive. Steve obv would have made it through his entire military service without letting on that he was trans, so he knows he’s totally capable of lying his way into german high command

- This has so much fanfic potential, I am dying

- Go forth and write all the fanfic about diana teaching steve the secrets of her 12 volumes about sex

why do people like to use the whole “adam and eve not adam and steve” against gays like need i remind you that adam and eve had one job but they screwed that up and plunged humanity into sin like they aren’t exactly the poster couple for a healthy relationship

@totallynotcaptainamerica I just finished a study guide for my exam this evening so I’m indulging myself with trans headcanons:

  • ftm!Steve who sobs when Erskine tells him not to be a perfect soldier, but a good man, because it’s the first time someone besides Bucky acknowledged his gender. 
    • ftm!Steve constantly looking in the mirror and admiring his new body, because it’s all hard muscles instead of soft curves, and something he never dreamed he would have.
    • ftm!Steve who is angry at history books for erasing his transition and trans identity. 
  • Non binary!Clint shopping for jewelry and dresses with Natasha. 
    • Natasha being miffed that Clint’s winged eyeliner is always so on point.  
  • Vision not understanding human’s preoccupation with gender and bathrooms, and experimenting with their own gender presentation because why is an android automatically assumed to be male? 
  • Androgynous!Pepper rocking blazers and pantsuits. 
  • Non binary!Maximoff twins who will go out in matching outfits constantly. The media makes a huge deal the first time Pietro goes out in heels and a skirt, but quickly backs off because when Wanda’s eyes begin to glow a threatening red.

I need all of the trans!Avengers thoughts please and thank.

no offence but where’s all the steve preserum being trans fics,, where’s steve having to stop painting to yank off his binder n hatin it bc he was in the Zone and now he has to reabsorb himself,, steve being short and tryin’ real hard to make himself taller and getting annoyed when he still barely scrapes 5′5. having to make a decision between binding or caring for his health properly and only chooses the health option because bucky glares at him too much if he doesn’t,  

anyway i have emotions about trans stevebucky so have this. Have It

  • steve came out to bucky with all the fumbling grace of a nine year old with the world’s biggest chip on his shoulder, blood still in his teeth and spitting because “i don’t need help, barnes, i aint a lady” and bucky gave him a glare and punched him in the shoulder (soft, because bucky wasn’t an asshole), says “ladies ain’t weak, and i know you aren’t one, rogers, so shut your goddamn trap ‘fore i shut it for ya”
    • steve’d lit up, eyes bright and wide, said “you mean it?” and bucky’d glared at him and threatened to punch him, and steve was gone

  • and they’re inseperable from then on, bucky giving steve the clothes he grows out of too quick, steve with the hems of buckys shirts hitting his knees, and his ma sews them up and scruffs a hand through bucky’s hair because she’s always liked that barnes boy, likes him even more now he looks out for steve, now that steve practically has a full time guard dog

  • and as the years go on and steve starts desperately trying to cover the small chest he has, all tight bandages and bucky glaring at him for it because “dyou got a death wish, dyou think your asthma’s gonna let up on you for this”, and bucky slowly, steadily, starts getting more intrigued with makeup

    • and he ain’t a dame, he knows that, doesn’t feel like a girl like steve feels like a boy, but he doesn’t feel like a boy either, which is just asking for trouble, so he keeps it quiet except for the dead of night talking with steve’s ma at their rickety kitchen table while steve reads in bed, sick again because of the cold

  • and sarah rogers’s a good lady, all warm heart and cold rage when someone crosses someone she cares about, and she says “if you want’d, james, i could help you with the lipstick. i don’t much wear it any more, because of all the work, so you’re free to it.” and bucky’d had to hide his grin in his mug of hot water and mint leaves, said “i’d like that”

    • and sarah doesn’t turn back on her word, slips lipstick into bucky’s work pack when he comes over after school, gives him some blush as payment for helping out with her boy, and every time bucky puts it on steve blushes like he’s seen god himself, and it’s - so good, and it’d be worth it for the look on steve’s face even if it weren’t

trans steve:

  • “move out the way i’m trans”

  • sam: ur too tall
  • steve: ur being so transphobic right now

  • stroking his fingers over his top surgery scars all the time as a comfort thing because it took so long to get here but now here he is, proof of it on his body and he loves every part of it

  • in interviews with conservative asshats about being Captain America™ he just talks about how trans he is, every question they ask him ends with “but i’m too trans to care actually”

  • bucky has a bet for how long it takes the reporter to get so red with rage; tony wins five times in a row by saying “before the interview even starts”

  • spraypainting the shield into the trans flag colours and snorting when the world Explodes about it, when people on twitter asks why he’d do that he’s just like “for me”

  • interviewer: so what’s in your pants
  • steve: justice and bucky’s juice box

Y’all cis ppl aren’t allowed to write trans characters until you learn there’s absolutely no circumstance under which it’s okay to deadname your character.

Full stop. Y’all aren’t allowed to write trans!Steve, because if I have to read one more “Stephanie” ever again I will burn my blog and take the Tumblr servers down with me.

Hey, y’all! Do you want some questionably legal Captain America pride buttons? Well, now you can have them! 

I recently started making pride buttons on Zazzle (which I’m still learning my way around, tbh so sorry my store isn’t cute yet) and I thought tumblr folks would be into these. I also have a couple others up and should have more soon. If you want a custom pronoun button (or anything other kind of queer button), hit me up and I’ll be happy to design it for you!
