Friendly reminder by lunar-neo Friendly reminder by lunar-neo
I see tons of art of characters binding this way; and I want to be clear that of you really do do this that it is dangerous! It can also make complications for top surgery later on; which means no top surgery
I do know that not everyone has access to safe binding, and dysphoria is a binch; but you gotta be safe about it ok? 
i listed some differences and some of the dangers of bandage binding, but there are so much more! do educate yourself if you are binding
double binding and tape binding is also bad for you as well, i just want my special watchers to be safe!

edit: ALSO binders with clasps are not good, they may be cheap but they aren't good for you!

if you have or know any other important things for trans people to know, don't be afraid to give me some psa ideas! i'd love some for all different kinds of trans people as well.

wanna reblog on tumblr? -> lunarneo.tumblr.com/post/15795…

before i knew this i thought it looked nice stylistically in art but now i'm more careful about what i show b/c even accidentally sending the message that it's proper binding isn't good. whether it be about practicality and/or design, it's better to depict that in some other (realistic and healthy) way, and this is a super cute drawing to show that!!

i've never worn them for more than 5 hours tho because i can undo them through my shirt and if they're troubling me at all i can always take them off easily without even needing to go anywhere private! i just pinch the side of my shirt (the clasp is under my left arm) and then leave it hanging around my neck (i can even take it off just by putting one of the straps over my head through the shirt and pulling it out through my collar)

i wANNA SEND U A PIC OF ME WITH MY STRAP ON MY HEAD OVER SKYPE

Binders with clasps are also a no-no. Learned that from experience haha. They may be cheaper but it's not worth it.
