Binding Makes My Dysphoria Worse
Imagine breaking your leg
And wearing a cast
That pushed the insides of your bones
Out of place, all day.
In the name of “healing”
That’s what binding is like–
It’s fucking bullshit
The only reason binders should be sold
Is as an alternative to worse methods
Like ace wrap, duct tape, or what have you–
I wear sports bras
That are sometimes too small, sometimes the right size
I have scars on my sides
From years of wearing too tight bras
To help me hide my chest
I don’t even wear binders, ya’ll
That shit hurts so much I can’t function
I definitely can’t work in them
I absolutely cannot LIFT WEIGHTS IN THEM!?
I’M TALKING TO YOU FOLKS, WTF ARE YOU DOING
I can’t imagine wearing a binder all day at a
Desk job. Binding while sitting
Is 150x worse than binding while standing
Nobody talks about that either
I think, honestly
I’m just gonna go make an episode
Right fucking now
About all the shit on my chest
I haven’t yet talked about
Which reminds me–
Binding makes my dysphoria worse
Wearing no bra at all– makes my dysphoria better
I don’t give a shit that I have titties, men do too
You know what men don’t have to do?
Wear bras. Wear binders. Suffer for no reason.
That’s why I dress comfortably and work on my
Confidence and self-esteem instead.
