Vallium Posted September 29, 2015 Share Posted September 29, 2015 ...I had a rough night so bear with me.I think most people who are familiar with me are aware that I have a disdain for gender related roles and norms.So excuse me if I ever run into a post in which I have to correct the fallacy of it's gender-related bias.As someone who is biologically female. Ive grown up with a lot of cultural standards that should be followed or adhered. Specifically in my living space. As I age I naturally gravitated away from that, and I could do so, because as a nice touch people like me could be dubbed 'tomboy' and get away with masculine related things. (This is rather outdated as of now because most 'masculine' things are stupid in being called so and could be deigned to either gender i.e getting dirty, playing with bugs, roughhousing)You cant have equality with double standards, some movements like radical feminism show that (sorry feminism, 'tis true). Boys cant get away with femininity...not without being called names like "faggot", "pussy", etc. Boys are expected moreso to live under heavy guidelines of their sex. If a boy is gentle, likes pretty things, soft, and emotional...it is apparently considered unmanly.Now I get that things are moving away from all of these old concepts fairly well, but they still exist. I still see posts on occassion condemning males for "unmanly" behavior. So what? What the hell does it even matter? Why CANTa guy like this or act like that? As someone who's constantly been for berated for not acting feminine" and doing what I have to...its not fun to see when people make comments like these, and I gently attempt to correct these. Why?I refused to wear dresses, I was even bribed to do so...$100, $500,$1,000, and I refused. At the time I was like 12, for a twelve year old thats a lot of money, but money doesnt mean anything. I was once told "Boys will never like you if you dont start acting feminine", I. Dont. Care. As if I was what I was to get people to like me, because clearly my parents dont like me. And secondly, this is a flat out bullshit lie...so many people have seemed to openly love me as I am without the smoke and mirrors of a lie that was meant to keep me in some proverbial box of standards that make no damn sense...like we somehow attributed colors on the manly and womanly spectrum without realizing nature dictated no such thing and all spectrums of light can be seen by anyone (Except birds, males are more colorful. Faggot birds) Note: Im aware gender roles and transgender are two different things and one can be happy as a 'masculine' female or 'feminine' male without trying to change gender to fit in a role, In fact, the less roles we have the better off we'll be. Being transgender is another thing...that involves more facets to gender dysphoria. Im aware of this, and its not the only reason to whatever gender related issues I may have, all that is another rant or another time. TL;DR Dont be a dick to my cis girly bros....and pizza rolls not gender roles 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
