really like, now that it's been pointed out, the fact that there's Pretty Much Absolutely Zero trans man or transmasc rep in like... anything?
like i seriously don't know a lot of media things that aren't like, podcasts, but is there anything?
seriously someone mention something, skdjgsdhssjlhh
@byttyrs @heytanuki the transmasc char i can think of who's not the subject of An Indie Lgbtq Film is buck vu from the oa. his character is somewhat minor but actually super well portrayed and also they found a trans actor to play him. but that's the only time i think i've *ever* seen a trans guy in mainstream media, and one of the few times i've seen a trans guy character i've liked
@heytanuki @byttyrs hahaha the answer is usually in indie/low grossing films as confused or self hating girls. on other hand though, i think this is a rare case of nothing absolutely being better than something. the way trans women are portrayed in film directly leads to misinfo, disdain and actual violence towards them :/
and yet, it is something of a touchstone for some folks' realization. i mostly had... other people with weird (a)gender on the internet to look to?
anyway heck, i appreciate you taking the time. 💖
