okay so through some ADHD word association hijinks I don't feel like explaining right now, I suddenly remembered being a kid and seeing pictures or posters of Avril Lavigne like this ⤵️
and just thinking that she looked SO COOL and secretly wishing I could wear a tie (when we had spirit week at school and had ~tie day~ the clip-on one my mom got me was incredibly disappointing, it was not the same 😭) and thinking about it now, it was definitely some kind of gender feeling. more gender presentation envy than traditional gender envy feels?
oh but you know what i think it is??? it's that intentionally botched femininity post but this time it's intentionally botched masculinity: wear tie wrong lmao
and now I'm wondering if there are other good and fun examples of intentionally botched masculinity... 🤔🤔🤔
