😓 PRESSURE TO ACT MASCULINE 💪🏽

It’s not easy being feminine in a #Masc4Masc world and some guys on the femme end of the gender-presentation spectrum admit they butch it up just to make themselves attractive.

Are you guilty of purposefully toning down your effeminacy because you fear guys won’t be into you for it?”

    I work out, I butch up, I beat myself up, I change how I walk, change how I talk, stopped using hand gestures, don’t even smile anymore and my sex-life is in the pits,

    Cause yes!, I hate my feminine side, cause yes!, being FEM is ugly!
    Constantly feeling shame, rejected and inadequate
    Sadly, It’s preferable to be the invisible gay…
    “he’s gay, but it doesn’t show”, oh how I hate when people say that.

    I know where it all stems from. I am aware of the internalised homophobia.

    This is the pride I wrote about in a previous article:
    Taking pride in who I AM. Undoing 30 yrs of negative scripting and trauma. Getting to a better place one day at a time.

    1. The first sign of dealing with anything is being aware of it so you can work on it 🫡 Where did you post the article?
