Sorry if this is random or rude but I saw your new bio and you said you didn't like people using femboy or twink for your pina art? Is it okay if I ask why? I've never seen that before and wanted to know what made you want to add that.
OOH okay. So like i originally had it on twitter but decided to bring it here. i said it on twitter bcs i found my pina are shared on a couple of reddit threads and they used both words to describe my picture of him!
So one thing is that this is all based on my own personal opinions of words/characters. So like if you don't like what i have to say, it doesn't impact you because it's like me just in my zone . so basically all im gonna say is that, this isn't an attack on you if you disagree with me. just my personal thoughts.
1.) i've heard that f*mboy is a transmisogynstic slur and that only trans fems should be using it. i am mlm so like, i tend to see it a lot especially used by furry mlm. and even tho i haven't seen a TON of transfems saying anything about it, i think even seeing a few is enough for me to not want to use it. Plus i just don't think it matches for my art or the connotations. there are some transfems i've seen who are cool with non transfems using it, and that's cool. im just not comfortable using it
2.) Twink--so everyone has their opinions on twink. mostly, people see a very skinny, feminine/small mlm who wears femme clothes occasionally or just a skinny mlm as a twink and that's cool. I personally just don't like the connotations and twink automatically having to mean certain things or whatever, especially since sometimes i've seen it used in weird ways to me at least. It also ends up going into personality or whatever, like having to be saved a lot or rescued or whatever.
Like, yes i hc pina to be feminine , but as an identity, i also headcanon him to be submissive/a bottom during like nsfw situations (esp with like riz & tem) if you've read my things. but to me that doens't make him a twink ?? like he can be all those things but i just don't feel that should reduce him to a twink?
and i guess like, while that's how i see the character i just don't personally like that twink itself has become synonmous with that to the point where it means a certain thing. and even then, i think it can devalue a character. like a feminine looking person who u may think is a guy and call a twink, can actually be nonbinary and not comfortable with those terms. and i do sometimes hc pina as nonbianry, so i just personally don't like what twink means in my scope or sphere, because i feel that when people use it it completely reduces a personality or assigns a personality. and sometimes when people see me draw like a super feminine pina or whatever, and they call him a twink and assign that word to certain traits or whatever then it's like--uh--no. at least not for me.
and also i don't really see a lot of people draw/write pina as an exclusively feminine person by means of him dressing like that and that being his identity, and to me it's not something that is like assigned to him being a twink it's more so just who he is. and i think twink kinda takes that away.
also um--don't reblog this i know i don't have anything to worry about but still??
also for twink--this is my opinion. im not here to shame people for how they see or use twink or tell them not to use it because like--who am i? i am just a person on the internet so my opinion doesn't matter and doesn't hold value to your opinion. i think that's important to say. i am just an idiot, so if you use twink for pina or anything or use twink in the ways i have said that i dont like--that's chll because like, that's you and your work.
