brief public service announcement:
that “circumgender” post is by someone who is thirteen years old!
grown-ups, please think before you reblog with righteous anger, however genuinely destructive the ideas are that inspire said anger!
Gotta remind myself to check people’s profiles before reblogging things out of left-field. It’s too easy to assume a context around your own demographic. It can have disastrous consequences. Sometimes people need space to think through stuff, and these dialogues are never as clear-cut when it comes to power dynamics as it sometimes seems.

The weirdest thing is that people talk about “coming out” as if it’s this big momentous thing that only happens once while in actual fact it’s something that you do almost every single day every time you talk to a new person every time you’re in a new situation you’re constantly weighing your options, the ability to be your true self vs the advantages of being a false self and honestly it’s so fucking exhausting
