This isn’t profound or new information, i am just upset. I wanted you to hear it in my voice but I don’t have the means, so text will have to do.
When I look at Instagram (I follow a lot of queer trans people) there’s this whole thing about comparing images from ‘pre-transition’ to ‘transitioned’ and it’s pretty much always defined in binary terms. It’s often documenting medical transitions and comparing the aesthetic differences between past and present. Its uncomfortable to me because it plays into the concept of ‘passing’ it plays into what is considered transitioning. I’m sad that it feels like there is so little space for non binary and trans folk who aren’t physically transitioning. Cis culture tells us that binary identities and physical changes are the most (or only) legitimate forms of being transgender. There’s a pressure to conform to binary expressions of gender, because when you don’t conform you don’t belong anywhere. #transgender #nonbinary #genderfluid #transition #queer #diecisscum #enby #crybaby #binaryoptions
