Shower Dysphoria Tips

Okay, this is about to be a long list but I hope it helps someone.  Being genderfluid myself, I just showered for the first time in several days because of my disabling dysphoria.  I always see tons of tips about clothing, hair, behavior, and even makeup, but I don’t see a lot of tips on here about dealing with shower dysphoria.  Some of this is going to be aimed at trans*, genderfluid, and genderqueer individuals specifically, and some of these tips are for agender and other nonbinary individuals, but most can be applied to all of the above.  Let’s get started!

- If possible, listen to music.  Whether it’s on a phone, laptop, or portable radio, listen to music you enjoy, and listen to it as loudly as you’re able.  It helps me to have something else to focus on while I go through the motions of showering, even if it’s my own horrible singing.

- Use shower products marketed towards the gender you identify with. Since I’m genderfluid, I keep both “male” and “female” bodywashes, shampoos, and face washes in my shower so that however I’m feeling, I’ve got the products available to reduce dysphoria as much as I’m able.

- Have your clothes ready inside the bathroom with you. I always make sure that my clothes are completely prepared for me to throw them on as quickly as possible after my shower.  My dysphoria is increased significantly when I’m undressed, so not wasting time turning my clothes right-side out, or searching for clothes helps.

- Keep a mental list of the steps you need to complete during your shower.  1. Prepare clothes 2. Turn on water 3. Get in shower 4. Shampoo hair; ect. Having a mental list of specific steps you need to complete helps break the process down so it isn’t so overwhelming, and you’ll be able to keep track of how close you are to being done.

- Use genderless shower products.  Unfortunately, it’s pretty hard to find shampoos and body wash that aren’t marketed a specific way.  The best brand that I’ve found is Lush products.  Almost all of their products aren’t targeted to any gender at all.  Unfortunately, if you don’t live close to a store (the closest one to me is over two hours away) it can get pricey buying online once shipping and taxes are applied.   One that has been suggested a couple times is Trader Joe’s brand, but I’ve been told it mainly pertains to the west coast. Also, a more widespread brand is Head and Shoulders! If anyone knows of any more common, genderless brands, feel free to add on or message me and I’ll edit it in!

Unfortunately, for those of us with dysphoria, showering is probably always going to suck at least a little bit. If anyone else has helpful tips, feel free to reblog with your additions.  If you’re not comfortable with that, message me on here and I can edit it in.

Above all, just remember that:

Your dysphoria does not define who you are.

You are valid.

You are loved.

Alya wakes up with her heart in her throat and her hands tearing at her hair. She groans and rests her forehead on her knees.

If only he’d shut up.

She checks the time. It’s only three, because of course it’s unreasonable to ask for a full night’s sleep. She stays where she is for a little while longer, curled up in a ball and hugging a pillow, letting her heart rate level out and her head slow its spin. When she stops feeling like she’ll throw up if she moves, she slides out of bed and pads into the bathroom.

Alya avoids the floorboards that creak and is careful to close the door softly, but it doesn’t really matter. After a few months, her family got used to her getting up at strange hours and wandering around the house. Once she stopped screaming, it was easier for them to sleep through her nightmares.

Alternative endings for Samurai Jack that would still have been bittersweet without wiping Ashi out of existence

Genndy Tartakovsky wanted to make the ending of Samurai Jack bittersweet. Okay, fine I can respect that. However, he didn’t need to wipe Ashi from existence to do that.

In fact, making Ashi fade away created so many plot holes. How did Jack travel back in time if Ashi didn’t exist? Why does Jack and everyone who met her remember Ashi? Why didn’t she disappear straight away? Why did she lose her powers when Aku died but then stay around only to fade away on her wedding day?

Here are some different ways Samurai Jack could have ended.


1. Once she’d broken free on his control, Ashi no longer had Aku’s powers. She helped Jack kill Aku but Jack had to live the rest of his life in the future.

Jack could never go home and still felt guilty about being unable to save the people of his own time. However, with Ashi by his side and an army of friends, he slowly learned to be okay with that.


2. Ashi died fighting Aku and her sacrifice gave Jack enough time to kill him.


3. Jack killed Aku in the future but was mortally wounded in the process.

Ashi held Jack’s hand as he bled out. He was surrounded by the people he’d saved over the years and who had come to his aid in his hour of need. He died an honourable death, knowing how much of a difference he’d made.


4. Under Aku’s control, Ashi killed Jack.

Aku then let Ashi’s true personality surface again so that he could taunt her. She was horrified by what he’d made her do.

Through her tears, Ashi picked up Jack’s sword and pointed it at Aku. He laughed, telling her that she is his daughter through and through and the sword won’t work of her. It can never be used by evil.

Aku didn’t even move out of the way when Ashi struck him. He only had a moment to feel surprised as the sword cut him before Ashi struck again, this time a killing blow.

Carrying Jack’s sword, Ashi walked away. No one would ever control her again. She repeated what Jack had told her, “I am not my mother. I am not my father. I am my own person.”


5. Ashi took Jack back in time. Together they killed Aku. She kept her powers and didn’t fade away.

Jack and Ashi stay together. Jack still doesn’t get older and, due to her powers, neither does Ashi. Eventually, they live long enough to see the time period Aku sent Jack to. It’s a very different place without Aku in control.

Jack runs into the Scotsman, who doesn’t recognise him.


6A. Ashi broke free of Aku’s control but didn’t have instant mastery of her powers. She and Jack killed Aku in the future and Jack was stuck there while Ashi learned to control her powers.

They helped the world heal and undid the evil that was Aku. Ashi kept practising and experimenting with her powers. One day, she told Jack that she could send him back to the past. However, there was no rush and they talk about it.

If Jack went back and killed Aku in the past, he’d create a new timeline where Aku never took over. That didn’t mean that the current timeline would stop existing but it would be in a different universe and Jack would never be able to come back to this one again.

The future they were in at the time was better than when Aku was still alive but it was still healing. Ashi decided to stay in the future and continue to help that timeline. Jack chose to go back and save the people of his timeline from ever living the one where Aku won.

They end up living in separate universes and can never see each other again.


6B. The same as 6A but with an added ambiguous ending.

After defeated Aku in the past, Jack helped his people rebuild and recover. However, he still didn’t age. He no longer felt at home among his own people and eventually left to wonder the world.

One day, Jack found the portal that the Guardian protects. However, Jack had no desire to time travel again. He knows the future is different now and it won’t be the one he left. Besides, if he waits long enough, he’ll live to see it.

Instead of trying to reach the portal, Jack talked to the Guardian. The Guardian told Jack that the portal can do more than move you in time. It can take you where you want/need to be, even if that place is in a different universe. Then the Guardian repeated what we already know; the portal is only to be used by one person and that person must defeat the Guardian.

The story ends with Jack raising his sword.

Explaining that the Doctor’s “heavy metal” rendition of ‘Clara’s Theme’ was meant to be “drawing” Bill and Heather together, Lawrence added: “It’s all part of that time and space montage.”

- talking about a deleted scenes for 'The Pilot’

So the Doctor uses Clara’s theme to draw two lovers together. So he must have been thinking about Clara in some way!

Even when it doesn’t seem like it, Rose always listens to even the most trivial things the Doctor says.

Childhood Memories

I keep coming back to this - how Sherlock starts to remember his childhood and how Mycroft seems to remember it. 

Who does Sherlock see even before he finds out about Eurus? Victor. He does not know it is him but while being drugged he clearly sees a boy his age playing pirates with his younger self. And he also sees Redbeard which is interesting because in the TST memory scene Victor and Redbeard both exist. 

But there is more - Sherlock is wearing a yellow sweater and red trousers and a pirate hat. 

The same clothes he wears in Mycroft’s memory sequence in TFP. And there is a dog. And a sister. And a big brother. But no Victor. 

So why these differences between their memories if we are meant to believe that the memories are from the same day? Why does Mycroft see the dog but not Victor? 

No spoilers, you might say, but from TST we knew that there was a boy who could not be Mycroft since he was about Sherlock’s age and stature. 

Why are their memories so identical and yet so different?

Keith/Lance Dynamic

Alright so the majority of anti-klancers that I’ve seen claim that they don’t like kl/ance because their relationship is “abusive.” I’m here to tell you all that this claim is complete and utter petty bullshit, and the relationship between Keith and Lance is completely healthy. I’m going to capitalize on their symbolic roles as fire and water, because it’s important to understanding their relationship and also I find it interesting as hell.

Let’s start from the beginning.

Right off the bat we can tell that these two don’t like each other. Or more like, Lance doesn’t like Keith and Keith literally does not care. He doesn’t even remember who Lance is at first.

See. Keith literally doesn’t care. He’s just there to rescue Shiro and doesn’t have any strong feelings towards the other three. For now.

As the episode progresses, however, we get to see more of Lance and Keith butting heads.

Keywords: Lance and Keith. A lot of anti-klancers like to say that Lance is the abuser in this situation, but fail to recognize that it’s mutual arguing. (so, y’know, casual colorism). And more importantly, nothing abusive is ever said between the two. They never rip on anything personal or get physical with each other. How you guys manage to pull “abuse” out from childish banter between rivals is the epitome of grasping at straws.

On to episode two.

Throughout this episode we get to see the dynamic between the two, and it’s literally like fire and water. They’re complete opposites and can’t help but rub each other in all the wrong ways.

Competing against the other to prove themselves.

Taking jabs at each other.

They make a really bad team don’t they?

But listen, that’s the point. Keep in mind how this dynamic fits into the theme of the episode. Five people are put together, seemingly at random, to become defenders of the universe. It’s not just Keith and Lance who are struggling. This episode is about all of them learning how to come together as a team. Lance and Keith are especially resistant to each other but that’s what makes their dynamic so gratifying. Fire and water naturally have a turbulent relationship, but by the end of this episode—and the series— we get to see them make real progress towards becoming a team!

Wow, two people who hate each others’ guts are smiling and laughing together, having a good time? Maybe that’s because they don’t actually hate each other. Their personalities (again, remember fire and water symbolism) don’t match, so they argue and resist each other. But if they really hated each other, this could never happen, and not to mention, they wouldn’t even be able to form Voltron if they truly hated each other.

From this point on, we know Lance and Keith do not actually hate each other. Now we really get to see their relationship develop.

Look at that they’re having a normal conversation. Almost as if they could stand each other. Keith’s face tooootally screams “I hate you Lance.”

And look at this: the two sitting next to each other and eating, even though they could literally sit in any chair they wanted to.

Aaaaaaany chair they wanted to. Any chair.

And when they’re celebrating with the Arusians:

This entire exchange is that between friends. No animosity whatsoever. Compare to episode one when they couldn’t even look at each other without scowling. More Progress!! They’ve come pretty far in learning to get along.

Speaking of getting along: And now the moment we’ve all been waiting for!! The Bonding Moment!

Keith goes to check on Lance (because, what?? he cares about Lance’s well-being? Yeah he does) and to help him up.

Except nope he just fucking kneels beside him and holds his hand.

And here you have it!! Lance fully and shamelessly admits that he cares about their relationship. He’s genuinely happy that they could work together and succeed, and he says this all while holding Keith’s hand.

Here have more of it!!! Keith as we already know is a man of few words. But he feels the same way as Lance. He’s also happy that they could work together as a team. Do these two guys, smiling and supporting each other, look like the faces of hatred and abuse? The exact opposite, actually.

Next episode and we’re confirmed way past the apathy of their first encounter.

Remember when Keith only cared about rescuing Shiro and didn’t want anything to do with Lance? Well look at him now. Look how impatient he is to see Lance get better. Allura has to scold him because he’s getting annoying about Lance.

commence pout.

And then we get this scene. We’re reminded that even though they do care for each other, they still have that competitive dynamic. They’re fire and water, so it’s only natural. Ah, rivalry.

More rivalry.

R…ival..ry?

At this point they’re competing to see who did the most for each other. It’s still a competition, but a strange, warm kind of rivalry. And they don’t even notice.

And then Lance got played by Nyma and the team has to go rescue his gullible ass. Let’s take a look at Keith.

Does this look like the face of hate??

Does it look like these two hate each other in any way shape or form??

They’re bantering—of course they are—but it’s playful banter. Look at how much fun they have teasing each other. Where do you see abuse in this?

And then in the Balmera these two actually work together. Without arguing.

Keith is even smiling at this development!

Look how far they’ve come!! Remember when I said their fire and water dynamic was important? Here’s why:

Fire and water are opposites. Lance and Keith are opposites. Their relationship is rocky and they don’t always get along—as we see at the very beginning—but we get to witness their monumental development from being the opposites who couldn’t stand being in the same room together to the opposites who compliment each other and when they work together, make a really good team.

That’s the beauty of symbolism and rivalry, people. They might bicker and get on each others’ nerves sometimes, but it’s undeniable that they’ve formed a strong bond and do care about each other.

You don’t find the rivalry dynamic interesting? Fine. You don’t interpret any of this as romantic? That’s cool, too. But to say Lance and Keith hate each other, that their relationship is abusive, is obscenely far from the truth and trivializes the trauma that real abuse survivors have suffered through. Real abuse is disturbing and damaging. Competition between companions is not. You can have your reasons for not shipping klance but stop with the abuse bullshit, because it’s insensitive and completely unfounded.
