"What does the T in TF2 stand for?"
most of the time i'm just sorry
Anonymous asked: If I'm cis and identify strongly with a certain set of pronouns or like the way they sound, am I allowed to use them too?
Fair warning, the answer you get is going to depend on who you ask. This is a thing that the trans & nonbinary & genderqueer communities are very much divided on.
Some people say no, it’s appropriation, cis people don’t get to play with our toys, etc.
If you’re asking *me*, I’d say yes, absolutely, use whatever words you feel comfortable with. I firmly believe people get to choose their words, and I want to encourage as many people as possible to discard the trappings of cisness. Just be aware that you may encounter some pushback.
I would also want to say that if you feel the need to use nonbinary pronouns, you may want to re-examine the parameters of your identity and maybe cis as an identifier really isn’t right for you.
Ally tip: learn to recognize the difference between a censored queer romance (i.e. Marceline and Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time) and queerbaiting (i.e. BBC Sherlock and Supernatural)
