Tom looks I dig <1/?> : The Beard
Multifandom Challenge (1 of 50) Male Characters » Kurt Wagner
I’ve been called a monster. I’ve been hunted. Hell, I’m the son of a demon. Does this mean that I have no soul? I don’t know for sure. It isn’t something I can touch, something I can control. All I can control is what I do. I make the choices I think are right and that is all I can do. I decided that I have a soul.

so while i respect cis folks who fuck with gender roles and express desires and needs to step outside of the traditional gender narrative society has built for them…
in expressing these deviations you have to fucking remember how privileged and lucky you as a cis person are.
because in these actions of ~gender bending~ your gender and presentation is directly benefiting from cissexism.
you can shed this “outfit” or “look” and just be what the drs assigned you at birth. you can say “i feel like a ______ today” and not have the whole system panic.
your gender presentation alterations isn’t you revealing a huge scary painful secret that society will tell you is a phase in your head and/or a sign that you’re mentally unstable and/or deranged. A secret that can result in homelessness, joblessness, drs refusing to aid you, families/friends disowning you, abuse, sexual abuse, death… the list goes on and on…
no, you messing with gender is a much safer expression.
because as oppressive and foul gender roles are, a trans* woman will have her pronouns refuted again and again but then society has no issue calling a cisman drag queen “she”. because somehow a cisman putting on a dress is more of a woman than a fucking trans*woman. which is bullshit.
because non-binary gendery folks will have their pronouns refuted because “thats not a real word” or “they isnt singular” and be told again and again that they are just a ________ who likes to “dress girly” or “look boyish”, thus having their identities erased again and again.
because society is more interested in hearing cis people pretend to be trans* or talk about/make art/music about trans* experience/dysphoria than listening to actual fucking trans* people.
because… i ment to go on but frankly this stuffs painful to write on.
So while i respect and love folks breaking down gender structures in relation to presentation and engagement and interaction and description of ones own body…
we in the queer community need to make sure that cis individuals and cis bodies are not the focal point in discussions of gender destruction and rupture… especially since a great deal of these actions are cissexist and based in cis privilege…
i just woke up but this has been on my mind for a bit
