Even if I went on T, cut off all of my hair, bound myself within an inch of my life, and dressed as masculine as possible, I still probably wouldn’t pass because of my height. Even if I did, by some miracle, pass, I still wouldn’t be attractive, I’d just be this tiny little kid. I have sooo much jealousy and anger towards tall women. If they wanted to, they could pass just by putting on a baggy t shirt and pants.

In response to a comment saying, “but there are small men too! think of people like daniel radcliffe, martin freeman, elijah wood… and they are still pretty masculine. i’m sure you could pull that off amazingly too (:”

I know that I’m just being heightist about it— I know I subconsciously judge short cismen and I don’t find them attractive.  Short men can be well-liked, funny, blah blah blah, but in our culture they aren’t hot.  I, shallowly, want to be hot.  Also, being is a short cisman is being 5’8. Danielle Radcliffe, etc, are all around like 5’5.  I’m 5’2.  That’s like Seth Green height.  I really don’t remember the last time anyone thought Seth Green was hot.  

I’m really sorry if this post is making anyone feel uncomfortable or disphoric about their own height.  If you’re comfortable in your body, that’s amazing and I’m really envious.  I’m not trying to make anyone feel that they aren’t good enough or man enough, I’m just expressing my own feelings of inadequacy.  

So today I felt like a girl. I put on makeup and dangly jewelry and felt great. I ended up at target and remembered I needed new boy pants. It was super strange shopping for boys clothes when I felt like a girl. I felt pretty uncomfortable. It felt like drag!!! I kept thinking “what would I feel comfortable in?” Also the cashier asked me if the pants and boxers were for my boyfriend. Usually if I shop for male clothes I’m presenting as a boy, so even if they don’t read me as a boy (they don’t) they just assume I’m a butch lesbian so they don’t ask about my boyfriend. It was weird, man.

Even if I went on T, cut off all of my hair, bound myself within an inch of my life, and dressed as masculine as possible, I still probably wouldn’t pass because of my height. Even if I did, by some miracle, pass, I still wouldn’t be attractive, I’d just be this tiny little kid. I have sooo much jealousy and anger towards tall women.

I don’t understand why people get so upset at being told they have privilege.

Being privileged doesn’t make you a bad person, denying your privilege does.
Having privilege doesn’t mean that your life is sunshine and rainbows. It means that society favors people like you.
Your personal experiences do not erase your privilege.
Don’t be upset about being told you are privileged, be upset that the things systematically given to you are denied from others.
