A man on grindr asks me how big my dick is.
I want to point out trans men exist.
But I don’t want him to know I’m trans.
So to do the former I tell him there are men with vaginas.
And to do the latter I lie about the size of my dick, heavily exaggerating:
I say that when I have vaginal sex with trans men I end up bruising lungs.
