@tamlyn picked out that hoodie for me. She always seems to know where to get the best clothes.

She's also always the best dressed, even when she just throws on some bullshit and PJs.

Where did we buy those hoodies?

I never really solidly connected with enbies and I realise that's why, but I still feel for that part of my life.

That said…
*extremely ContraPoints voice*
AS A TRANS WOMAN
…I still get pissed off about shit like:
• Male
• Female
• Decline to State

No, absolutely not you binary-normative fucks… completely unacceptable. You will not erase people like that, and I will cause a huge fucking stink about it *every time*.

So for a really long time I was like…
"I hate being a boy. I am definitely not a boy."
*anguish*
*consider alternatives*
"Well, I was raised by women, I had girl friends, they were all really horrible and toxic to be around… I don't want to be like them…"

Then I discovered being and made that my identity.

Then one day I spent an afternoon with women who aren't conservative or self-destructive and was like "Oh. Yeah, this feels more correct…" and now I'm a girl but wholly unsure of who I am?

This is a long thread but I'm almost done. I saved the beat for last: LUNARPUNK
-harder, edgier, darker than solarpunks
-work with space, underwater, underground, late night construction
-BIOLUMINESCENCE
-much more of a metalic heavy color palette
-are you a goth who respects the solarpunk community but will never ever step within 100 feel of yellow/green/pink? LUNARPUNK.
-not the antithesis to solar, but the nocturnal compliment to solarpunk culture.
-TIDES, RHE MOON, ASTROLOGY, WITCHCRAFT
-mushrooms too, because they crave death and darkness just like you
-again i repeat BIOLUMINESCENCE
-bats and other creepy crawlies that get eeked at by those flimsy solarpunks are your biffles
-the ideals: the sun is not always there for us, and someone must sleep eventually. When those times come, lunarpunks get to work. Midnight construction, and the knowledge that we must accept all types into our way of life, or suffer the consequences of lack of diversity.

Remember: the red pill in "The Matrix" was based on estrogen pills. Any man who claims he's redpilled is symbolically becoming a trans woman. Facts not feelings, MRAs; if you don't like the facts, find a different metaphor.
