not gonna reblog the photoset because nsfw but
someone talking about how a photoset of cis men in frilly lingerie is Important because it’s showing men with non-gender-normative presentation
actually no the world has plenty of cis men in sexualised feminine attire. the problem is that it’s always sexual, or it’s ridiculing/humiliating, often all three. and in turn, trans women/ feminine of center dmab folx are sexualised, ridiculed, humiliated, and done violence to.
a man in a dress? a sex symbol or a joke. a woman in a suit? professional. do you not see the inherent transmisogyny there.
what would be important, what we need, is pictures of men in traditionally women’s clothing in the context of work, of the everyday, of family or education, of achievement and success. illustration that femininity on anyone is legitimate.
