More strength.

I’ve decided it takes more strength to be honest with myself than to uphold some bullshit concept of masculinity.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    yes! at the risk of sounding flippant by comparing this to Queer as Folk, I always felt Emmmett was by far the strongest out of the lot.
    I wish more people would realise that. And you are awesome!

    This strikes a deep cord in me. For a long time I though I was ftm I didnt realize there were other choices untill recently. Now im working to a slow road of having to break yet again more news to people restating and having to re-explain myself to people. So not upholding this state of masculinity and to come to terms of being honest with myself is something im having to think upon daily. . .
