Do they identify with the color of the car, or are they trapped inside waiting to be a different color?
Do they identify as an automatic or manual or CVT or Dual clutch sort of car?
Do they identify as having leather seats or fabric?
Do they identify as a V8 trapped in a 4 cylinder body? Or vice versa? Or do they identify as electric, or hybrid?
Do they identify as a front wheel drive, a rear wheel drive, an all wheel drive or a true 4×4?
Do they want some cosmetic surgery, maybe change those headlights to round or rectangular or… hexagonal?
Have they been abused? Will they be triggered by someone with heavy feet, or a woman with stilettos?
Car profile pictures are so very open to interpretation. People worry about people too much, but what about people who identify as cars? What kind of cars?
I’m sure I don’t know.
What is clear is that they don’t identify as a human, for whatever reason. Maybe they were born that way. Maybe they smoked some strange plant – not marijuana, of course, something stranger. Maybe they were raised by feral Tonka toys, or Matchbox cars.
Maybe their parents were cars. Maybe it was a one night stand, they met by accident, bent some fenders…
So don’t treat them like humans – you should treat them like cars. Send them lubrication. Fuel/electricity. Make sure that they have enough blinker fluid stockpiled. Communicate in ‘vrooms’. Wave your hand at them like windshield wipers.
Whatever you do, don’t make fun of them. They’re really, really sensitive.
