Unfortunately, what I’ve come across so far within this fandom for trans people has been extremely lacking in realism. It’s fetishised, unrealistic and ill informed. Characters have, in fact, been used in past fiction to belittle the trans community and breed hate.
Trans men are no less men. Trans women are no less women.
Their stories are interesting, fascinating and heartbreaking. If portrayed correctly within fanfiction and art, a media that, let face it, a lot of people are now looking to, it can help spread awareness and understanding.
And for those who do not know, DO NOT bind with ace bandages. You’ll do yourself some real damage.
Love this. Been meaning to write a oneshot or something
