tv lied to you!! lulls in conversation dont mean that they hate you and want you to go away!!! basking in each others presence is Friendly As Heck
and sharing something that pops into your head isnt awkward or weird! its natural and engaging!
tell someone about your day or how cool catterpillars are!
It’s okay if your identity is messy. Attraction and gender are complex and easily get wrapped up with a dozen other parts of ourselves. No two people are going to experience attraction or gender (or lack thereof) in the same way because we’re all very different! With very different backgrounds and personalities and priorities!
It can be very nice to find a community that you relate to, but don’t fret if you can’t find something that feels quite 100%. The community is vast and there is room for you!
I've been trying (ironically) to put this into pretty and powerful words but I cant so I'll just say
Fuck the expectation that we should be pretty and palatable to other people's eyes
Fuck the unsolicited acne treatment and makeup tips
Fuck the anti wrinkle cream and diet commercials
Fuck dentists and parents giving kids cosmetic braces
There's so much more that I'm angry abt but I can't think so feel free to add on
