I know archives don't show video, but you can copy and paste to look at the video.
This young woman has some pre-t passing ftm tips. First of all, don't get an undercut, because you'll look like a lesbian. Get a haircut like hers. (Which plenty of chic butch women have, but okay. If you're wondering what cut she has, think KD Lang circa 1993. I've heard something about KD Lang being a lesbian, but I'm not sure. Don't quote me on that).
She recommends getting shoes one or two sizes too big, because it will make you look taller. Ah, no, that's not how it works at all. Looking at longer length on the floor will not add height in the air. Most people don't notice foot size anyway.
Get baggy clothes, but not too baggy, because you'll just look like a little kid in over-sized clothes. Fair enough.
Get your pants hemmed, so you look taller. Again, that's not really how it works, since most people are looking at face level, not ankle level.
And finally......wait for it.....type differently. Type in a masculine way. Type "ha ha" instead of "hee hee" and things like that.
Do teen girls actually type "hee hee?" I've never seen that. I've seen TIMs do it. Otherwise, I don't really know what "typing in a masculine way" even means. She suggests using fewer emojis, too. You can use some in general, but not too many. What does that mean?
Oh wait- NOT finally.
She also suggests washing your hair with only water. What this is supposed to do I haven't the foggiest, but she says it helps her pass better as male. I know there's a debate on shampoo vs. no shampoo in the haircare world. But I really don't understand how it would make your hair look more male. Men use shampoo.
I am frustrated with this teen but also wanted to make her her favorite meal and have a talk. If she thinks undercuts are an out trend, and it's all about preppy boy classic cuts now, fine. Trust me, KD Lang has had the same haircut several times over. It's good to see it back.
Someone in the comments correctly pointed out that wearing shoes the wrong size is not good for you, and it's not something people notice anyway.
But otherwise, they all thought these were good tips. I really wish this girl could get advice from some older lesbians or even just fellow women that NONE of this will help her become male. She should just be her adorable, tomboy self.
To be frank, all of her ideas are ridiculous, and only a teenager would think all this would work. Or very unhealthy, delusional adults.
And for all that she is unfeminine, she IS vain. She clearly loves her hair, for one. That's kinda why I want young girls to have Butch Chic as an option for cool and stylish. She's got all the vanity of a teenager, but no acceptable outlet to express it on her terms.
