After a while, you stop worrying about what people think of you. You realize that the most important thing is how you feel about yourself and other people’s opinions begin to fade from the back of your mind. It’s not easy, and it takes a while, but once it happens, it’s liberating.
I don’t think people understand that some trans men are not feminine. And not because we’re pushed not to be, but because certain things give us dysphoria.
I am a fairly feminine trans man, but certain things make me uncomfortable. Many people on tumblr seem to coddle us and elevate our femininity, when it’s not something some of us want to highlight.
When you draw art or reblog pictures of trans men, ask yourself why you tend to always call them “soft” and “small”. Ask yourself why you try to elevate the femininity in the trans man, when a lot of us aren’t comfortable with that.
(edit: please don’t reblog if transmed/gender critical, please)
