Here's the rant: If I didn't peak by randomly watching Nikkie Tutorials 'coming out' video, then 'Elliot' Page's interview would have definitely peaked me.

I peaked because Nikkie said he always knew he was a woman because he always liked 'wearing pink, and dolls, and whatnot". Then I did some digging around the word terf and whoopsie a baby terf was born. Glad to have found you.

Anyways, this Eliot Page coming out thing... Here's what I got thrown at me in my youth " You drink from a glass like a man, you ride a bicycle like a man (???), you never want to wear high heels, why don't you let your hair grow, be more like a girl, you can't be a mechanic that's a man's job, why are you sitting like a man?, a woman with short hair??? are you sure you are a woman?, you only buy/wear pants... " to name a few.

The only time I 'wanted' to be a man was when I was about 4-5 years old and I wanted the convenience of peeing while standing up. That's it. Over the years I've never felt drawn to stereotypes of what it means to be a woman, and even though I was behaving unconventionally and even though everyone around me told me I'm not 'lady like", I stuck to it. I knew I was a woman, I can't exaggerate this one loud enough. I never gave into anything stereotypical of my sex, but even though I was wearing baggy clothes, even though I had 0 make up on I still experienced misogyny, I've experienced sexual assault when I was 18 while idly staring at my computer screen wearing a hoodie.

So, I just want to thank Ellen Page for 'opening' my eyes by telling me that I was a man all along. Freaking sellout.

Good god... Smdh.... I'm so glad I was raised before all of this bs bc I was a full on tomboy when I was younger.... I'm 1000000000000% sure if raised in this environment today they would have tried to trans me.

Do they not realize they are just reinforcing harmful gender stereotypes that back in the day feminists have worked so hard to try and break down?! ?! 😩😩😩 A girl who likes to play in the dirt climb trees work on cars and take boxing classes is still a girl for ffs!
