Some Things I Wish Were Told to Me on My Period

For all my trans-bros who are also going through Shark Week, Manstruation, or simply put, your Man Period, these are some things that you should know, that I wish were told to me earlier.


-No one can see your pads or tampons through your pants.

-If you’re using a male (or female) bathroom, go during lunch. There are typically not as many people or no one will notice, since they’re caught up in the hustle and bustle of food.

-Take care of yourself. Don’t worry too much about what you eat at this time, since your body needs replenished nutrients.

-Wear sweatpants. They’re comfy and still masculine as heck.

-Be more cautious with your binding. Your chest may be more swollen during this time of the month, so maybe reduce the times that you use it.

-You ARE allowed a day off. Periods are living hell for anyone, but dysphoria does make it a lot worse.

-Take a deep breath. You’ll get through this.

-YOU ARE VALID. You’re looking handsome as hell today, good work. I love you bro.

Best regards,
Kai

i’ve been trying to post a drawing every day so…here’s some lineless practice with allura holding… molten steel? a star? you decide.

JUST IMAGINE IF FAI HAD PICKED UP THE BOOK

“I can’t believe that book just straight up murdered Syaoran-kun.”

*a cackle is heard in the distance*

ok but literally falsettos was the queer representation that ive been clamoring for my whole life and its honestly just so refreshing???

like you have all these characters who are allowed to be wholeheartedly gay, not just off offhandedly mentioned to be in passing and then get continuously toned down. but like, actually showing these characters in relationships, and struggling, and consistently showing affection towards each other honestly i didnt realize what i was missing out on until this came into my life 

maybe ive just been poking my head into the wrong media corners but never in my whole life have i seen a gay couple be allowed to be so overtly sexual (especially for something that came out in the 80′s holy moly)

and on top of seeing queer characters who have realistic relationship struggles, the also show these guys having fun! like ???? i dont get to see that a lot in media!!! lesbians and gay men, having a genuinely good time with each other???? without being a side plot????? fuckin incredible!!!

i didnt mean to ramble like this but like….falsettos man…..god bless

Actual Eurovision 2016 winners Måns and Petra

so i spent yesterday in an ongoing dispute with some knobbo on my facebook about lady dr who and after the most ridiculous argument in which he both said that he only liked the first doctor and the doctor should be an old man (’a fatherly, scientist figure’), but also said he was fine with the concept of a regenerating, changing doctor, i decided to lighten the mood and wrap up the conversation with a joke about black james bond

and omfg

LET IT GO, DUDE

“Boys want love if it’s torture, but real men want you to text them back. Honestly. The way you can tell the boys from the men is how they react when you don’t play games with them. A boy will become bored. A man will want to get to know you more. Everyone wants a challenge, but you shouldn’t have to completely manipulate your communication style in order to seem like one. Your conversation, your outlook, your wit, your accomplishments, your charisma, those things should challenge him. Any MAN knows that if you’re showing him all of those qualities, you could just as easily show them to someone else if he plays games. You know what they say, play games with a girl, she’ll chase you. Play games with a woman, she will replace you.” — Taylor Swift

no offence but if you’re a girl with a visible adams apple u are beautiful. keep up the good job u look gorgeous

i need to like… say something about this trend i keep seeing. i feel like i say this a LOT actually on nearly all my blogs but it can’t be said enough tbh.

so like -seinfield voice- what’s the deal with all the tragic abuse stories?

and no, not like.. “haha that’s not a thing that happens” because i’m sure we each of us could say “oh but it does, here is how it happened to ME” and it would be varying degrees of abuse.. going from emotional to verbal to physical and even sexual. like i get that, i know that is a thing, trust me.

what i DONT get is how it seems to be used as The Trend that Gives Your Character A Plot or Makes Them Interesting.

Like if you remove that and your character is boring as fuck then even with it your character is boring as fuck. like ????? abuse plots/pasts/bios/whatever can be used in a way that works and a way that doesn’t make using it a gross trend or fetish or something either???

like ok if ur gonna tell me ur character is anna jo whitelastname here (bc lbr, YALL, the amt of bland white girls that this pertains to is out of fucking control. this is COMING from a white girl.) and she had the perfect parents until one day randomly they were not perfect and either they abandoned her or like, began to “show their true selves” like ???? like wtf??? and then u never explain it u just constantly write “and then they were gone! and they just had to go! it was just the way it was!”  you are not writing a background character very well. you give a background character THAT much crazy story in your muse’s story then u need to explain some shit and motives and explore that and if not…

man it feels not only tropey as FUCK but like you didn’t even try? you just wanted to put as many tropey events for “abuse” as u could to justify why your bambi whitegirl is the way she is? and the way she is… is typically STILL very boring or if not boring .. wildly illogical as to where she goes next.

like i’ve seen it go from bambi whitegirl FINALLY stops being scared and lives on her own and she goes to school and that’s it!! that’s the end of the bio, welcome to her life of… going to school??? serving coffee maybe? being cute but flinches every time u touch her???

to: and then she toughened up AND BECAME A SUPER HERO AND ALSO BTW SHE HAS POWERS DID U KNO THAT? SHE’S SUPER TOUGH ALL OF A SUDDEN BC IT FLIPPED A SWITCH COS IDK IT JUST DID.

and it’s weird and it’s gross and it’s just fucking boring. dude what is the DEAL with this? can we please stop writing these OCs that are nothing but a white bread and processed cheese sandwich of abuse tropes? let’s learn to craft a background character that can remain as such until necessary that doesn’t invalidate or make weird our muse’s stories. let’s learn to not rely on having our muses get beaten or talked shit to or what the fuck ever just to give them a hump of a plot that you can say you walked over as if you just climbed mt everest.

i mean, shit, you could leave that out and keep the BORING shit and still make that interesting bc writers do all the time??? i mean??? seinfield=a story about nothing but it’s funny as shit. most dumb sitcoms manage this and can be interesting while still doing mundane things. it is possible but the crutch of abuse as a storyline or the whole THING behind your muse is getting fucking old. yall we can do better.
