Seriouspost to other dudes--

One way to help trans people is being socially open with your own emotions. Talking about how things make you feel, or when things hurt you, really helps trans guys feel normal.

I really struggle a lot with feeling not-really-a-guy because something hurt me. You all being open is a reassuring example sometimes. 🙏🏼



This is good advice.

A lot of us are socialized not to examine our feelings and not to understand or express them. For me, it can lead to a lot of outbursts of anger and behavior that I couldn't really articulate or explain even as I was doing it. More so when I was younger, but still today I can feel myself reacting in that way. I have a lot more tools to deal with it once I decided to recognize and be open about it.
