This is a simple text based game where you play as a young trans person trying to buy some underwear. I made it with the intention of showing cis people what it’s like to be trans. You can play as a trans girl, trans boy, or a nonbinary person. It’s short, so you can play it multiple times for different paths. There are several paths, some better, some worse; if you’re easily triggered by dysphoria or transphobia, you may want to avoid this game. Some paths are safer than others, depending on how well you pass (surprise, surprise). TW for homophobic/transphobic slurs, transphobia/transmisogyny, slurs, misgendering, and possible violence.
I did this just to see how relatable it was, and holy shit it was like someone put me back in the spots i was in only a year ago. My heart is racing shit.
ow… my everything hurts…
Hey all my cis followers: this is instructive. Go play it.
i…. really didnt like this. not because im “easily triggered by dysphoria” but because its horribly unrealistic even in the first 10 choices and no, there ISNT an option for nonbinary people (“i prefer not to choose!” is not the same as “im agender”) and it really just caters to people with social dysphoria (if i chose the goddamn piss poor nonbinary option that doesnt mean im not ok with being called a girl??) which many nonbinary people dont even have.
i also dont have parents so i feel alienated but i dont really care about that
anyway gjkfdgjdfklgj i just wish someone could make one of these ~~lgbt simulators~~~ that isnt actually fuckign terrible???
Same. I kind of completed this simulator a month ago or so and chose the nonbinary option but it’s not at all helpful. It ended with me going to the men’s section and try buying some boxers. Then I encountered a supposedly collleague, a girl from school who was there with her buff dudebro boyfriend. Since I always choose the worst possible answer to see how bad can the situation get, I ended up being beaten by that guy. But I don’t understand why I would be in a men’s store section? Unless I am trying to pass as masculine, but that’s just gender roles and indeed, as you said, the simulator caters to those with social dysphoria a lot, while many nonbinary people don’t have that.
Maybe also inserting images or sounds and making these even more interactive and with a lot more options depending on various life circumstances would improve them, so far I’ve seen no helpful simulator for this.
For example now that I tried the one for LGB (or I think it was only for bisexual), some of the answers seemed unrealistic and yeah, I don’t think there are many people who outright puke on food after hearing their son has a boyfriend with whom he has sex both ways. Or maybe that’s just me. Perhaps the game presented the actual thing that happened but also possible outcomes in this “coming out” situation. And it’s probably worth mentioning that personally I don’t enjoy games where there’s a lot of text or you have to talk a lot with a bunch of people, speaking to the point, no bullshit included is my method of saying things, but it highly depends on each person.
