The Straights™: *struggles to come up with any theories for 4 seasons* Flint: *gets a happy, gay ending* The Straights™: “Uhm, actually he died?” *comes up with a really complicated theory how Silver actually murdered him because they’d rather see a queer character dead than happy*
So if ‘cishet’ aces just went back in the closet and called ourselves “straight allies” would we actually be accepted or would we still be distrusted for being straights pretending to be gay pretending to be straight or some bullshit? Asking for a friend.
Idk seeing “hanzo protection” blogs kinda makes me side eye Bc like. Hanzo’s an AssHole. Just let the man be himself.. Without reducing him to a trembling flower that can’t fight his own battles like he’s stayed alive this long just! Let the man be an asshole
Is binding dangerous? Some genderist said the dangerous of binding (not counting ace bandages) are just made up by """"""cis""""""""""""" people to discourage Trans men.
Whoever’s saying that is full of shit. I personally stopped binding 2 years ago and still get chest pains and have trouble breathing. If I do bind, I get horrible pain like I’m being stabbed or like I have bricks on my chest for the next week even if it had only been for 4h. I went to a physio for an unrelated issue and they were very confused that I had bent my rib cage and was breathing with the wrong muscles and as a result had a decreased lung volume.
I know that other ppl who bind break ribs, bruise their ribs, deform their breast tissue and other things along that line.
My advice is:
1) bind as little as possible (time)
2) bind as loosely as possible (shop one size bigger than you think you need, they’re designed to fit tightly)
3) only wear binders designed for TM (GC2B has the least constrictive shape for breathing)
4) wear layers instead of binding whenever possible
Whenever you hear anything about the health of TM from the general trans community, check with multiple TM directly to confirm it.
Hope this helps a bit 💕
