I tried this for the first time in a long time yesterday. I was stuck for a good minute or so before I found that spinning my upper body wildy and forcing my arms down at the same time pushed it down somewhat. Needless to say I’ll be going back to stepping into it today and all other days..
When I get dysphoria I tend to have all of these things people have said on the subject of me being trans that have bothered me end up rattling around in my head and it gives me a headache
And when I get dysphoria I tend to have trouble speaking so this was kind of my way of trying to explain what it feels like
I also wanted to show how much just using my preferred name can improve my mood. I wasn’t really sure what the title should be and this one just kind of came to me while I was coloring it so I just went with it
Descriptive adjectives are a really big and underrated part of preferred pronouns and misgendering. And they’re usually meant innocently, which almost makes it worse…I have insecurities about my height, personally, so being told it makes me ‘adorable’ just makes me feel more girlish, which I hate.
My cousin, James Hong, saw me for the first time in 7 years, and didn’t even recognize me. He was calling me male pronouns and everything. My mom then told him that I was his little cousin, and he was like “Oh, I know. I figured that out a while ago. I’d recognize HIS face anywhere.” I feel like flying. :)
Really quick comic based on my experiences at the UK Pokémon National Championships. I had an amazing time, not only because I adore Pokémon, but also because of how many people gendered me correctly! It was amazing! Gender euphoria is definitely a thing, and it’s one of my favourite feelings.
Sorry about the quality, once again, my scanner wasn’t great lmao.
