I’m Sick Of Getting Fatphobic Transition Advice
I don’t talk to cis people
Who tell me how to be a man, so–
Why would I listen to trans folk
On how to be a man?
I thought the whole plan
Was that I already knew
That I was one.
I thought I was enough of a man
Life limited me, not my brain
Not my biology, but social graces
That burdened instead of helping
Why would I want to go
To a trans guy group
Where everybody there
Gives me tips on how to “pass”
With the body god gave me herself?
Nobody knows I’m trans anymore
My life is on a fucking zoom call
It’s besides the point when you’re only ever
Why do I need to look
More like a cis man?
Do you tell that to every nonconforming
Cis boy with a shape that doesn’t fit
Your idea of what masculinity looks like?
I’m sick of getting fatphobic transition advice.
