I kind of want this to be an actual paper though lol

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that he’s performing Rock Steady. I just can feel it in my bones!
I would argue that 1% of his schtick is looking like one of the twins from The Whispers and the remaining 1% is channeling a Dick Tracy character...
You could really have just written:
Yeah I thought about this a little more and figured that he really never cared about the kid at all. But you really laid that out pretty nicely. It’s a complex psychological power move.
I never understand the pivot from “I love this kid so hard, I’mma fight you all day and all night in court! #notwithoutmychild”
Can we take a collective moment to acknowledge how effin’ great Will looks? I mean, bruh is 50. Martin Lawrence is 54. They look a lot different...
Riiiiiight. I’m like, these are the most professional texts in the history of texts lmao I was all ready for “Gur, ain’t nobody got tahm for none of this bullshit. You comin’ to karaoke tonight or nawl”.
Between Big Ol Freak and Please Me, every commute is a full-blown party for me.
I worked with a guy who’s wife died in childbirth. I thought to myself what in the 1822, get me my smelling salt fuck? Then I found out this happens a lot more than people think!
Who ya gonna call? KKK-busters!
Ol ashy knees...
Oh also, thanks for being cool on this question. These types of things often turn into arguments when people like myself who are even part of the LGBTQ+++ community legit just don’t know different things.
I think something that gets lost is that acknowledging a kid’s burgeoning sexual identity doesn’t mean a cart blanche to premature sexuality. It’s a fine line!
Heard! I have to come clean that I have alot of discomfort around hormones for anybody (for instance, a ciswoman post-hysterectomy) - I just don’t feel ok with what they are doing on the low low, that you don’t find out for 20 years.
You have genuinely educated me! Now I still gotta say, I want a kid to be old enough to understand those long-term effects, whatever they may be. But I didn’t realize it was hormone blockers and that does sit a lot better with me.
Isn’t there a point at which hormones are the most effective - like an age? It’s a hard call. But yeah 18 or so I’d say you’re gonna know what your plumbing is gonna do and you can decide if you wanna fiddle with it.
I wasn’t confused actually, I myself didn’t know I had options lol. I never crushed on girls because, although I’d been in love with lady parts since kindergarten, I wasn’t attracted to skirts and frills in any way.
