iamnotdanisnotonfire asked:

do you have any headcanons on them coming out to youtube about gender? I feel like dan and phil would just hint at it for ages and never actually say anything definitive, Chris would be straight-up and honest about it, and PJ would do that film thing

-peej would go all out definitely!! a nice little colorful film (maybe drawn out just bc I love his art style)

-I agree Chris would just be honest from the beginning bc he doesn’t rly care what others think. my headcanon Chris gets very little to no dysphoria.

-Phil may have heavily hinted it to the point where he was out but he never made a specific video where he came out (if that makes any sense

-Dan would make a v official much serious video about being trans and his own project thing like #nicerinternet but for trans kids or smth. I can totally see him coming out and being rly into the community!!!

5. Describe your appearance like a young adult novel protagonist.
im going based off rn so

Often times Felix found faerself concerned with every detail of faer appearance. It wasn’t vanity, but rather a sort of hyperawareness. Should any one thing not be up to faer standards, faer mood would spiral into an anxious mess. But now, as fae lounged in bed, faer looks were the last thing on faer mind. It was an eclectic visage fae had, with faer short black hair tied up in what fae affectionately called a “manbun”. In the glow of faer phone, the redness of faer eyelids was pronounced, as well as the dark circles under them. This was of no concern to Felix, however, as the exhaustion that was so clear in faer features wore on faer body.

anonymous asked:

Do u ever want kids? Would u want to be called dad or mom? Im guessing people who are trans wait till kids are older to expand gender. Im wondering on ur thoughts because I just watched "olivia has two moms" on youtube but they are lesbians. Olivia called denise daddy and she had to explain that she wasnt a boy, she is just an androgynous woman. (Like extremely androgynous)

Well my sister was 7 when I explained gender to her and she understood completely. I personally would educate kids at a younger age about what gender actually is and not let them think that whatever the see in society is okay or true. I personally want to adopt kids one day, and would want to be called dad!

anonymous asked:

hey milo. sorry to bother you but i've been feeling lately that i may be genderfluid..but how can i tell? like how did you come to terms with your gender? sorry if this is too personal, i just don't know what to do

I sort of tried calling myself different pronouns for a while, I watched videos where other trans people talked about their experience and how they felt to see if I could relate to anything, I went on chat rooms for trans kids and talked to kids my age, I just tried to expose myself to as much as I could too see if any of it was making sense to me.

anonymous asked:

whenever you shuts down people when it comes to that post its interesting to see almost ever single one goes "how dare this adult person i assume is cis tell a TRANS KID reasons that theyre wrong" like... they seem to expect that because theyre those two things everyone should just back off and throw a tantrum when people dont automatically tell them theyre Of Course Correct and Knows Best Always

Man, I don’t even have to talk to them, they just pick up Straw!Mercury and start wailing on the poor defenseless thing for not apologizing and agreeing with them immediately.

They get really extra mad when they go digging for my info and find out that I’m AN OLD. How dare I be older than them on the Internet!

It’s A Social Construct

Your child’s genitalia should not, in any way, influence the way that you raise them or socialize them.
Beyond the basic “this is how you take care of your body” information, all children should be raised with the same socialization, the same expectations about school and life goals, the same expectations for consent and responsibility, the same access to clothes, toys, hobbies, activities, and entertainment, regardless of their genitals

What trans people are doing isn’t that interesting or weird. They’re simply saying, “Look, I know you thought I was a boy for however many years. But I’m a girl.” It’s not that crazy. What’s crazy and weird is how our culture has a tough time with it and gives people such a hard time. It’s about transitioning. When a parent transitions or anybody in the family transitions, it’s about the whole family transitioning from a way of seeing the world, which is through this binary lens, into this next version of, not only their trans family members but themselves, everyone in the family, transitioning. Everybody must transition. They go, “If my family member is willing to be this, then who do I become?” That’s what kids of trans parents are thinking about, that’s what I’m thinking about as the child of a trans person, and all family members think about anyone who is transitioning in any number of ways. - Jill Soloway

mid-childan-puella-magi said:…How the hell does this person think you’re going out of your way to be mean to trans kids? Every person you’ve argued with in this has sought _you_ out! It’s not as though you personally deposited it on their dashboards!

Well you see, if you’re a kid with at least one (1) oppression, your feeling bad because someone older than you maybe kind of implied something that challenges your views is automatically their fault. It is EXTRA their fault if you yell at them and they have the audacity to respond with continued disagreement! You are an Oppressed Young Person, therefore, you are Right Always (unless a More Oppressed Young Person disagrees with you).

It's Ok to Be Neither

Teaching that supports gender-variant children

By Melissa Bollow Tempel

Alie arrived at our 1st-grade classroom wearing a sweatshirt with a hood. I asked her to take off her hood, and she refused. I thought she was just being difficult and ignored it. After breakfast we got in line for art, and I noticed that she still had not removed her hood. When we arrived at the art room, I said: “Allie, I’m not playing. It’s time for art. The rule is no hoods or hats in school.”

She looked up with tears in her eyes and I realized there was something wrong. Her classmates went into the art room and we moved to the art storage area so her classmates wouldn’t hear our conversation. I softened my tone and asked her if she’d like to tell me what was wrong.

“My ponytail,” she cried.

“Can I see?” I asked.

She nodded and pulled down her hood. Allie’s braids had come undone overnight and there hadn’t been time to redo them in the morning, so they had to be put back in a ponytail. It was high up on the back of her head like those of many girls in our class, but I could see that to Allie it just felt wrong. With Allie’s permission, I took the elastic out and re-braided her hair so it could hang down.

“How’s that?” I asked.

She smiled. “Good,” she said and skipped off to join her friends in art.

‘Why Do You Look Like a Boy?’

Allison was biologically a girl but felt more comfortable wearing Tony Hawk long-sleeved T-shirts, baggy jeans, and black tennis shoes. Her parents were accepting and supportive. Her mother braided her hair in cornrows because Allie thought it made her look like Will Smith’s son, Trey, in the remake of The Karate Kid. She preferred to be called Allie. The first day of school, children who hadn’t been in Allie’s class in kindergarten referred to her as “he.”

I didn’t want to assume I knew how Allie wanted me to respond to the continual gender mistakes, so I made a phone call home and Allie’s mom put me on speakerphone.

“Allie,” she said, “Ms. Melissa is on the phone. She would like to know if you want her to correct your classmates when they say you are a boy, or if you would rather that she just doesn’t say anything.”

Allie was shy on the phone. “Um …

tell them that I am a girl,” she whispered.

The next day when I corrected classmates and told them that Allie was a girl, they asked her a lot of questions that she wasn’t prepared for: “Why do you look like a boy?” “If you’re a girl, why do you always wear boys’ clothes?” Some even told her that she wasn’t supposed to wear boys’ clothes if she was a girl. It became evident that I would have to address gender directly in order to make the classroom environment more comfortable for Allie and to squash the gender stereotypes that my 1st graders had absorbed in their short lives.
