I'm a hypoglycemiac transman (pre-everything) and my dietitian wants me to carry my glucose meter with me at all times. The problem is, the manliest thing I have to carry it around in is a messenger bag, which makes me look more feminine. Are there any masculine alternatives? Thanks!

There are lots of alternates to a handbag! A backpack is the obvious answer, but you could also wear a messenger or laptop bag/statchel, which is a gender neutral way to carry your stuff around. Apart from that there is also the option of getting a cell phone holder/clip which attaches to your pants for you to keep it in.

you could also store things in the stylish leather band around your fedora!

"having a lifesaving medical device on me makes me look like a flaming faggot. help, transmanpoblems!"

You know what, for trans men, especially pre t trans men, it’s extremely difficult to pass if they dress femininely and that’s typically the main reason for worrying about looking feminine, not ‘looking like a flaming faggot’.

It’s a matter of safety and personal comfort that has fuck all to do with you anyway so step off.

I don’t get why someone would hate Clannad. Granted, I’ve never finished it, but at worst it looked like something that just wasn’t your cup of tea; nothing deserving of revulsion and hatred.

Then again, the only anime I’ve only ever hated was Sword Art Online, and that’s because Asuna is raped as pornographically as they could still have air for the sake of all the sick perverts to jack off to, which I think is a pretty valid reason to hate something. Had that not been included, I would have just gone “it’s mediocre” but I wouldn’t want to roundhouse kick anyone who says they liked it.

Isn’t it weird and amazing how straight men have apparently universally decided that they’d rather fuck a piece of taffy than a human woman.

Honestly, I’m not really seeing too big of an issue; I’m an artist and I admit to doing similar things when trying to accentuate the character’s form. I’m a female, but I enjoy giving emphasis on the female form because it’s a thing of beauty, we’re different from men and I like making those aspects stand out a little more; it’s not always about sexualization but rather more about what’s pleasing to the eye. I see comics and video games stretch anatomy on male characters to make them seem more buff, or masculine, too and it’s probably for the same reasons.
 The difference between art and reality is that we’re granted to the ability to exercise “Suspension of disbelief” for the sake of aesthetics.

Now, I know I’ve been talking about “art” and not video games, but I personally like to consider video games a form of art in themselves and I know there’s ALOT of concern with visually pleasing results in video games.

For Samus, I’m sure there was some desire to make her “sexy” in this modeling, and honestly I don’t find a problem with that either; She’s a strong, lead female character that’s been a hero since 1986, she was one of the first female heroes of a game and FOR ME, seeing her outside of her suit, with a really effeminate figure made me, as a woman, connect to her even more. She’s a rough and tough bad ass that accomplishes amazing things, yet under her suit, she’s still just a woman. In fact, she’s a pretty and effeminate woman; She shows women don’t have to be black and white; she can be a tough badass and still be feminine. I like the duality of her character!

After 17 weeks of trying and failing to get Nintendo to provide Pelloni with the SDK, on December 11, 2008, he decided to publicly protest to Nintendo by locking himself in his room for 100 days or until they provided him with the SDK, whichever came first.[1] According to Owen Good from Kotaku, he staged the protest in an effort to gain publicity by making Nintendo look like a corporate bully beating down on an indie game developer.[4] His room had no Internet access (save for broadcasting a live feed of him in his room via a webcam) or television and had only a mobile phone in which he could make calls and send emails and the materials he needed to work on the game.[5] Pelloni made the following comment when he decided to protest:[3]
"I cannot leave this viridian room. The door is locked and barricaded from the outside. I am sleeping behind the camera, and yes- I’ve got a shower. Food is delivered once a week by a friend…This is my 100 day protest to Nintendo!"

I find that, when writing bios, it’s really helpful to look at a list or a chart like the one above. Picking two or three traits from each chart and building a character based around them will give you a really interesting bio, because they will serve as a reminder that characters need depth and dimension.

Independent and clever.

VS.

Independent, clever, pretentious, and stubborn.

The first combination doesn’t come with any flaws, whereas the second will provide a more dynamic character.
