you’d think there’d be room to talk about how trans men are still men while acknowledging that our lived experiences differ from cis men, but it seems like most folks have three settings: trans men aren’t men, trans men are men-lite (i.e., allowing trans men in women’s spaces while excluding trans women, “smol soft beans uwu”), or trans men are men so they have the exact same experiences and privileges as cis men
If being asked to remove slurs from your vocabulary makes you melt down then yes one of us is a snowflake but it’s not me.
It’s amazing how offended people get when you ask them not to say or do offensive things.

“The camera adds 10 pounds” is a phrase of the past. Now people look better in their pictures than they do in person
When people say that the camera adds ten pounds it’s because cameras used in filmmaking/TV production have a wider focal length and therefore subjects look wider or bigger. Whereas cellphone cameras have a short focal length that makes subjects appear thinner or smaller.
Nowadays, with DSLR’s and a variety of lenses, we are able to depict a wide range of focal lengths by using one kind of camera.
So that is why most people on social media may seem to look thinner than they do in person (especially in selfies because the front facing camera on phones especially have short focal lengths).
And that is also how the phrase “the camera adds ten pounds” came about.
this is actually so interesting I had no idea
You will die one day as well. Remember this.
