Me in English class
I’m so done with this postDID YOU REALLY JUST REBLOG THIS AGAIN
NO WHATRE U TALJKNG ABOUT
WHEN WILL PEOPLE FUCKING REALIZE THAT
DO YOU HAVE ANY FUCKING IDEA
HOW IMPOSSIBLE IT IS
TO LOOK LIKE THIS???
IT’S 100% FUCKING…
Fuck, I respected you TJ.
Men are given unrealistic expectations, sure, but not nearly as much. They aren’t nearly as likely to get made fun of for not fitting into that expectation as DFAB people are.
Expectations for DMABs
- have a six pack
- maybe have a big penis
- maybe be sexually active
Expectations for DFABS
- have big breasts
- but not tooooo big or you’re a whore
- shave everywhere
- have a perfect butt
- be short(er)
- be weak
- like video games
- but be bad at video games
- wear makeup
- but not too much or you a whore
- know how to please someone sexually
- but be a virgin
- be thin
- but not too thin or you gross
- but not too fat or you gross
- have perfect hair
- "be yourself" while doing trying to conform to all of the above
- the list could go on a lot longer.
You obviously have no idea of the sorts of pressures put on men. I can tell you that there are far more standards imposed upon us than just the three you listed.
First of all, not having a big penis is a big deal according to society. If you have a small penis, or even just an average one, you will find that society finds 1001 ways to demean your worth as a human being. So, fuck your dismissive “maybe have a big penis.”
On top of your list, there’s stuff like:
- Be sensitive (but don’t be a pussy!) Really, just be sensitive towards your partner. And it can be a total act. That sort of superficiality is not discouraged.
- Be athletic, but not a jock
- Be confident, but not arrogant
- Have perfect teeth
- Don’t you dare go bald. If you do, you’re a piece of shit.
- Don’t be short!
- Don’t ever cry (except for in a small handful of scenarios)
- Don’t be gay, bisexual, or have any sort of sexual interests outside of …
- … a robust sexual interest in any woman considered attractive by most people’s standards, even if they’re not your standards.
- Don’t express discomfort when women make overly aggressive sexual advances towards you (if you do, you’re a “faggot”)
- Don’t ever have bad breath, even for an instant. (same goes for stinky armpits)
- Make a lot of money, even at the expense of your own happiness and fulfillment as a human being.
- Don’t have emotional depth. Everyone knows men have no feelings beyond wanting to get laid and wanting to look cool in front of their friends.
- Don’t make lists like these pointing out that everyone is held to unfair standards based on things like their gender, race, age, class, etc.
allllRIGHT. PUT THE MONEY IN THE BAAAAAAG……..PUT IT IN!!!!!!

Please watch and share, and let this small project, run by trans* people, to help the trans* community, succeed:
Look at the first picture.
Do you use any of those words?
If you do, stop.
Stop saying this, stop saying any words like it. You think you’re just describing a type of porn, but what you’re actually doing is using slurs which hurt actual people.
The fetishization of trans people, especially trans women, is a huge issue. Trans people are portrayed as sexual objects in porn, they’re sexualized without their consent - and this trope translates into real life.
Do you know how common the misconception that trans women are “traps” is? That they’re trying to trick straight men into having sex with them? Do you know how many trans women get killed because of this belief?
This is very important.
I consider myself a trans ally. I have great trans friends. I support their right to be treated as equals (because they are). But I am so fucking sick of this crybaby bullshit about being “fetishized.”
Yes, I am attracted to a lot of trans people. I like girls with penises. I like boys with vaginas. It’s the best of both world to me, either way. This is an attraction that exists within me. These are MY feelings.
Don’t you for one fucking second try to tell me how I feel. And don’t you for one second try to tell me that my being attracted to someone is problematic for them in a larger social sense. It’s not.
This goes for all of the groups who make these claims. Yes, I am attracted to you. No, I’m not objectifying you. If I wanted an “object”, I’d fuck a goddamn fleshlight or a big dildo. I don’t think of my sexual partners—either potential or actual—as objects. I think of them as people.
Even if I did think of them as objects, that would be my own fucking business. Not yours or anyone elses.
