@strikerbacks tagged me to put my on repeat playlist on shuffle and show 6 songs i've been listening to nonstop! i'm currently sick of all my old music so half of these were from my discover weekly lol
are any other trans mascs horrifically susceptible to heavily gendered hygiene products. by which i mean does anyone else always cave and buy the stupidly macho deodorant bc if you can't look like a man you may as well smell like the platonic ideal of the man you're trying to be
(i.e., old spice 'captain'. bravery and bergamot.)
i feel like when i first started hearing the phrase “oh that fucks” it was in reference to something that had kind of a charismatic machismo to it and did sort of carry the sense of “oh that thing is sexual and can Get It” but it’s now transformed into something that just means “wow i really like that thing” and that’s so funny to me. like i just said “this rug fucks” what does that mean. can this rug get it
I personally wanna see less ‘you are not a burden/it’s not work to love you’ and more 'you are worth the work it takes to love you.’ I KNOW I’m a burden sometimes. that isn’t such a terrible thing! humans are strong. we can carry burdens. and it is work for me to be there for my friends, but it’s work I’m willing to do.
we need to acknowledge this because pretending love isn’t work will never make people like me feel less guilty for accepting love. we need to talk about it so people don’t feel bad for having boundaries and not always being up to do the work. we need to accept it so we can properly appreciate what others do for us and what we’re doing for them.
yes it does take work to love you. but guess what? you still deserve love, and you deserve people who are willing to do the work to love you. it doesn’t make you bad. all love take work. and everyone is worth it.
this trend on tumblr where everyone is larping as a literary theorist in this affected dark academia type tone mixed in with like stan twitter mannerisms but it’s also about like supernatural or whatever. whenever i see it i either think it’s the smartest coolest thing ever or super lame there’s never any in between
