I am a cisgender bisexual woman and I think my boyfriend, whose cisgender, might be asexual, a heteromantic asexual. Now he is intimate with me, but he doesnt usually initiate our intimate sessions and we are only intimate on special occasions. This doesnt change how I feel for him, but I am afraid that he is self conscious about talking to me about his questioning sexuality because ya know...societies toxic standards for manliness. Sand I just want him to be accepted and I've seen so much, just, judgment on heteromantic asexuals.
There is a special brand of judgement het aces face. And yes, asexual men do often find themselves in conflict with specific toxic traits our culture says men should have. From what you describe, it is possible that your boyfriend is on the asexual spectrum, in which case it would also be likely that he faces such things.
However, be careful not to project this as a certainty since he has not communicated any of this to you. There are other possibilities for his situation, whatever it is, and only he can decide how he wants to define and label his sexuality. In my opinion, you could share info with him if you think he doesn’t have it, try to help him feel comfortable discussing these topics with you, and overall just keep supporting him as I would bet you are based on what you typed here.
hi, i’ve got a question can intersex people experience gender dysphoria and still be cis? (apologies if this question doesn’t make sense/is insensitive)
yes! many cis intersex people experience dysphoria.
a common reason why is that our bodies often don't conform to expectations for our assigned gender, and that can cause gender dysphoria regardless of whether we're trans or not. for example, if i were a cis woman, i may be dysphoric about my body/facial hair, the way my face passes as male, etc.
and honestly, anyone can experience gender dysphoria. you don't have to fit today's definition or past definitions of trans to experience dysphoria. gender nonconforming, queer, etc. cis people exist and are fully able to experience dysphoria.
anyone can experience a conflict between their gender identity/expression and the way they look, get perceived, etc. cis people included.
“friends don’t look at friends that way” yeah maybe you should stop automatically assuming something is romantic without the person themselves outright saying it because you don’t know shit. it’s almost as if it’s normal to smile and feel happy looking at someone you care about and admire.
can’t i look at my friends and my family with a loving gaze because i just really appreciate that they’re in my life and i love being with them and i’m just thinking of all the fun times we’ve had together?? like why do you think you have the right to judge what SOMEONE ELSE feels based on a glance that you know nothing about. you don’t know what they feel. you don’t know shit and stop acting like you do just for the sake of your own comfort.
y’all might think this is some cool angsty love trope but it’s actually quite arophobic. i’ve had friendships ruined because of this. nothing is romantic unless the people involved directly say so. if you want to know if something is romo or not then ASK. some of you don’t understand that someone else’s love life and feelings are not for your own gratification or discussion and it really fucking shows
Please take the time to read this, I don’t have much time. I’m a disabled trans guy who is about to become homeless if I don’t find help/support. My parents are going to kick me out. They found out about my other blog where I vented about the abuse they’ve put me through (hence the new blog) and they are... not happy. Apparently I’m “disrespectful” and “ungrateful” for not putting up with verbal and physical assaults on a daily basis. I need help. I have nowhere to go in this city, but my cousin is willing to take me in. However she is in another province, and it would be incredibly inconvenient for her to take time off of work and drive 16+ hours to come get me and 16+ back, so I am trying to raise money for a bus ticket. If possible, it would be great if I were able to raise enough money so I can get my meds before my parents take me off of their insurance. With insurance my prescriptions are about $50 while without they are over $300, so I’m hoping they aren’t able to take me off of it before I can get my medications. They literally make my life liveable. Even if you are not able to donate, please reblog and share this post, it would mean the world to me.
A gender identity based off of the cobalt caste of troll society. This gender is tied to traits commonly associated with cobaltbloods, such as behavioural patterns and presentation. It is also representative of one's standing within troll society in a previous life, this life if a fictive, through a soulbond, zodiac sign, or just mere relatability.
Image ID: A five striped flag. The outer stripes are blue, with the inner stripes being grey. The stripe in the middle is a gradient of squares, from darkest to lightest. The lightest shade takes up more of the stripe than the colours before. End ID.
Flag design and terms coined by me. Available in both general and icon-friendly variants.
I made a mock up of what a Pride Lesbian Dragon Bagon using the 5 bar pink and orange flag might look like (I don't have the proper fabrics so I used the closest I had an did some rough digital editing).
What do you think?
The manufacturers are currently sourcing fabrics to make a proper sample for our upcoming Kickstarter. Follow us for more info :)
Heterosexual Ore. Just as good as diamonds. Has specks of pink and blue on it to represent men and woman and the heart is there to make it look different from the trans one. You don’t need it to be the best ore in the game. that’s why mine is just a retextured diamond ore. nothing special. Doesn’t fuck up gameplay nor does it come off as all powerful as everything has weaknesses.
