I love how she grows to be much more than just the "spacy domestic AI" stereotype, and it's cool to see a feminine autistic-y character who gets to be funny but not innately a punchline

Watching season 2 of The Good Place and realizing that Janet is a quality aesthetic goal

Especially the whole "AI construct/not actually a woman but very cute" thing

tfw you take style cues from transmasc friends, trying to split the difference between Butch and Cute Guy (But Not A Guy)

The other pole is Ojiro Cardigan Sniper

Cute, charismatic pentathlete who can inhabit any role for an adoring fan, and instigates WW4 for the Vine

Increasingly realizing that my ideal gender presentation is basically Breq Mianaai

Snappy long coat, nice gloves, Positive Hardass, female-by-default, trying to be the most ethical person I can be in a shitty world

I like the idea of gender as a very deliberate, contextual role

Like, someone who's usually thoroughly agender, but they like filling the role of "big ostentatious positive father" or "hardass priestess", and use he/him or she/her in those times, but would disagree with being called "A Man" or "A Woman"

Sometimes I forget that there are genders other than "girl" and "anxious nerdy boy who's about to realize something very important"

Dustin' this off, feeling more like a girl than usual

Unsure how much of that is tied up in Weird Arousal Stuff or how much that distinction even matters

Goddang, having a nice headband is a great way to feel Regally Nonbinary

tfw the appeal of getting to say "I decree Damnatio Memoriae on my former self" is a big draw to being trans

I just realized that this name can be condensed to "Zip Cryp" and I think that's beautiful

Gender introspection and such 

Being NB feels straightforward enough: No Rules Just Right, it's the Wild West, I can act and present however I want and nobody can give me shit for it, I'm expanding the bounds of what NB can be, all that great stuff

Being a girl, even intermittently, feels like it comes with so many more prerequisites, and however much I chant "gender roles are contemptible and fake" it's hard to truly process that

Gender introspection, lewd 

And it's already satisfyingly lithe-but-muscular, such that I can pull my hair back and cut a nice "butch Olympian" figure with my shirt off

Gender introspection, lewd 

I'm not sure I would take HRT even if it was readily available: I quite like my body, I just don't like the conclusions other people draw about my gender based on it

Breasts could be fun, but I could take or leave them; I also really like being a girl with a big ol' cock, and I don't want to jeopardize that

Although maybe I'd change my tune if I did a trial run for a few weeks

I kinda wish I had the strength of will to use effusive cute emoticons on all my public accounts, but maybe that's just not my aesthetic altogether

A well-placed tilde or two does the job just fine, I guess~

Seems like my Girl Feelings are bound up with my desire to be helpful, nurturing, surpass expectations, pleasantly surprise people, etc

I'm sure there's a lot to unpack there about internalizing gender roles, but in controlled doses it seems like a good way to both cultivate those personal virtues and play around with gender expression, so win-win

It's a good chilly day to dress like a Space Pirate Middle-Manager~
