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.

How in ever loving hell do you drink from a glass like a man? I am also so goddamn sick of everyone pretending that only men want jobs in the trades. There ARE women mechanics and these people need to STFU with their nonsence of of course I am a man! I hate dresses, like cars, like guy music and have short hair!

You stick your dick in the glass and slurp it up just like a straw.

I was more thinking, you drink a can in one gulp and then smash it on your head!

Drink like a man...smh I don't even beleive anyone said that too her, hence my absurd example.

Reminds me of Cheery Littlebottom in Feet of Clay saying she hates having to quaff ale. 😆

I'm not exaggerating, it's true, I was about 12 or something and I vividly remember it because my aunt was so mad at me for 'drinking (water) like a man', I also vividly remember not understanding what that meant and why she was so upset.

I don't know, apparently I drink from a glass like a man. Sorry to break it to ya, but we should gather round and announce our "coming out as men" party.

Well everyone knows ladies naturally drink with their dainty pinkies in the air! Dexterity is a masculine thing, obviously!

Lol

I've been told I drink like a duck. Which clinic do I go to for my trans duck surgery?

You put your lips on the glass to create a seal in order to drink.

REAL women don't do that, or it will ruin their lipstick.

I fucking hate that I do understand what it is to drink "like a man..."

Oh, I guess I drink like a man too then:( This just makes me even MORE annoyed at Ellen Page.
