wow that was just the internet version of mumbling mumbles of words making no sense
I’ve been meaning to ask this question so why not at an ungodly hour???
does anyone know of a general guidelines ish thing written by trans women and do’s/don’ts re: writing trans women?
I don’t even need anything more ~official~ than ranting about crappy portrayals and “DON’T DO THE THING” because even if I could figure it out on my own-ish, I’d like to be able to quietly check myself before someone else has to do it for me when I inevitably fuck up
and quite a few women I want to write are trans and I realize that there’s shit related to being a trans woman that I will never experience or even fully understand, but I figure that means I gotta learn shit? Because I don’t /not/ want to share these stories because I’m not sure how to write them. That’s so not cool.

HOW CAN YOU HATE A HYENA
I AM SO UPSET

ahhh yes things are coming together and I’m looking fucking luscious, splendid
*gulp* looking like a character out of a scifi show that hasn’t been made yet

YOU ARE THE HERO GOTHAM DESERVES
I’M CRYING BECAUSE OF THAT CAPTION
describing eye colors isn’t actually v helpful as a description??? talk about the makeup smeared on the left side, the lines under their eyes, the sloppily cut hair obscuring their eyes from view, how bloodshot or sunken they seem in the face, how wide they go at the slightest sound, how glassy and unblinking they seem, how they’re always darting away
all of that tells me a bit more about the character than whatever shade of gemstone they most resemble, seriously
You know the question I had after Gerard first told me about our family. Why us? He quoted me Winston Churchill: The price of greatness is responsibility. Personally, I think it’s more about knowledge. What we know. The truth we know about the world.
