hi I have an oc for a yugioh story, wont be started for a while but never to early to get advice, who will be a trans male, however him transitioning or anything isnt a focus at all, hes already wearing a binder and out, he's just going to be doing all this stuff as a trans male. Do you have any idea how I can more subtly tell the audience this character is trans without me yelling to the audience HES TRANS?

Kind of giddy someone asked me for writing advice. Heehee…

Okay, first of all, some people may disagree with me but basically yelling at the audience HE’S TRANS is the best way to do it in my opinion. Dropping hints to him being trans leading up to the reveal is good and won’t make it seems as though him being trans came out of nowhere but somewhere along the line he has to explicitly be referred to as trans. You see, not everyone spends all their time on Tumblr and knows what transgender people are or how to catch onto hints that someone might be trans. I’ve had to explain what a transgender person is to someone before…

Anywho, here is a list of ways you can hint at a character being a trans man before it’s actually said. And just hints about writing a trans man character in general.

1) Knowledge. Make him very knowledgeable on what is considered a female subject. More knowledgeable than a cis male normally is anyway. Something such as periods, women’s clothes, makeup, how women are treated differently to men…

2) His ego. Have him obsessed with how he looks. And I don’t mean obsessed with making himself look good but with making himself look masculine. Have him obsess over his hair or his clothes. Do you know how much time I’ve spent in front of the mirror trying to decide if the outfit I was wearing hid my curves or not? And I often stare at what other men are wearing and wonder how those outfits might look on me.

3) The voice. One of the biggest giveaways to a person being trans tends to be the voice. People call you sir based on your looks but the moment you open your mouth it’s all “Oh, sorry, ma’am” You can train your voice to sound more masculine but that takes a lot of practice and it isn’t easy because you’re constantly thinking about what you’re saying and how you say it because you’re trying to make your voice sound a way it naturally isn’t.  If he gets angry or is feeling very tired or distracted, any moment where he isn’t thinking right or concentrating a hundred percent, maybe mention how the pitch in his voice is suddenly higher or how it sounds softer.

4) Slouching. I slouch all the time to try and hide my chest better because here’s the thing about binders: They don’t make you completely flat. They do flatten you a bit but the main purpose seems to be to reshapey your breasts to make them look more like pecs. But, yah, unless your tits are pretty small, you’ll still have a bump but they’ll just look less like breasts now and more like pecs.

5) Binding and exercise. Binders are made of thick material around the chest area and aren’t designed to be super stretchy so when you wear one, unless it’s a cold day, you will sweat. Some people will also wear a shirt or vest under the binder to prevent chaffing and soak up sweat. So, you might end up wearing a vest, a binder over that then a shirt over THAT. So if there’s an instance where he has to move around a lot then he’ll probably tire out and start sweating quicker than the other characters. Also, you NEVER sleep in your binder or wear it for more than eight hours. Although, if your character has only recently gotten his then he probably won’t be able to wear it more than three hours before it starts becoming very uncomfortable and hurting. A binder is something you gotta get used to.

6) Social anxiety. Most pre-transition people I know suffer from awful social anxiety. Being in a group of strangers can be terrible because you’re constantly worried about being misgendered and if you try to explain to the person that they’re using the wrong pronouns then they might have a freak out and cause a scene or something. Whenever I meet a new person where I don’t know their opinions on the trans community, I get very nervous. I won’t look them directly in the eye, I’ll keep my answers very short, maybe even just grunt, generally say as little as possible because I’m so unsure of how my voice sounds and if I’m with someone else like my dad then I’ll let him do all the talking for me and will try to stay back as much as possible.

Now, several of these are generalizations. Not all trans people are socially awkward or care about presenting as their desired gender or being misgendered. These are just from my personal experiences involving myself and other trans people I’ve known.

So, in conclusion, you can’t really be subtle about revealing a character as being trans because there will definitely be someone in your audience who has no idea what a trans person is or who does know but doesn’t quite catch onto the hints so somewhere along the lines it has to actually be said. So maybe have your character casually mention being a trans man to a friend who already knows or have a scene where he explains what that means to someone who keeps on misgendering him and doesn’t quite get it.

I don’t know if this was helpful but I tried.

Honestly though, LeFou’s character arc in the live action batb is actually pretty neat? and I think everyone (disney included) is too focused on that dance scene.

I’ll try my best to word this right, but basically Gaston threatens LeFou and manipulates his crush to get away with attempted murder, leaves LeFou to die in the fight at the castle and is generally a fucking prick. and throughout the course of the movie we see LeFou realise that his feelings for Gaston and the dynamic between them isn’t okay or healthy. We see him realise he’s being manipulated and basically say “no. I deserve better” and the dance scene, to me at least, feels like him maybe getting that positive relationship he deserves

And just, from the perspective of someone who’s been in manipulative relationships, this is a nice thing to see.

                SO I FOUND A NEW LEGEND SOURCE FOR DIARMUID BY ACCIDENT WHILE TRYING TO FIND STUFF ABOUT HIS SONS AND - it basically says …. verbatim … that diarmuid was the fianna’s best healer. he KNEW a lot about identifying and curing illnesses and wounds. and that only the god of healing dian cecht himself knew more than diarmuid did about that shit. WH  A T. THIS IS NEWS TO M E WHO TAUGHT HIM bc it implies that aengus was the one who taught him all there is to know abt healing SO I GUESS THE STUDENT BECAME THE MASTER ????
