There is truth to stereotypes, but this does not mean that somebody should feel pressured to follow one because it’s what society says they should do. A christian gay does not have to become agnostic. A femme does not have to become butch just to be seen as a lesbian (an issue known as Femme Invisibility). A masculine straight girl should not have to prove that she is straight by becoming feminine!
Stereotypes are not a tool for you to find out somebody’s sexuality or gender identity.
This is important

Of course [I am a feminist]. There are different ways to be a feminist in your writing. You can either write for an ideal universe where everyone models what they want the world to be, or let your characters be imperfect and spark discussion. Mean Girls is very pro-women, but a lot of the jokes come from the terribleness of the behaviour.

MUCH LOVED Photographer Marc Nixon made a series of portraits of teddy bears and other stuffed animals along with their age, size and history. Some were very much loved :-)

"It doesn’t happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand."
oh fuck my heart
I was ok till the Velveteen Rabbit quote. Fun fact: I starred in The Velveteen Rabbit: The Musical in 4th grade and that’s what made me want to be in theatre.
Makes me love my old teddy Mimi even more.
