Embraced


Someone wrote…

For awhile I was playing straight and just fell hard for a queer man who helped me let my queerness back out.

Now I’m plunged into the same level of “huh?” as I had when I was first coming out in my late teens.. So nice to find a space where all the in-between is embraced.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Recommendation: Attention: People With Body Parts


Lexie Bean recommends…

Line drawings in many colors of many body types.

Attention: People With Body Parts
A book and letter campaign

“Attention: People With Body Parts” commenced as a drive to collect letters from folks who have written to one of their body parts. Our bodies are filled with histories and identities, which change the way people look at each other and look in the mirror. Together, we self-construct and self-destruct our bodies. This project is about accessibility of control, celebration, and space for connection to and from body parts. This project is about establishing safe spaces for anyone who has been told or forced to believe safety is not something he/she/ze/they can find within the home, the body.

I never truly felt feminine or sexy until I shaved my head and started dressing like a boi.

Profile: Bill / Mina


Bill

You can call me… Bill or Mina will do for me. Presently, I am in the middle of defining myself.

I identify as… gender neutral. I have been raised to think of myself as male, but the truth is a great deal more complicated.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I will go with what is used, presently it isn’t as important as just talking.

I’m attracted to… men.

When people talk about me, I want them to… see me as the caring, compassionate, emphatic person I try to be.

I want people to understand… I am doing the best to get through from one day to the next. I am as clueless as everyone else. And frequently more scared than you about being me.

About Bill/Mina:
I am 56. I have blue eyes. Up until August of 2010, I was relatively content living life as a gay male. That changed because I had my prostate removed, which essentially neutered me. It also has made me review my gender identity. Because while I am still physically male, I no longer am really male for all physical purposes. Not that I ever really was. But when my equipment was functioning, I could at least fake it. Now, I am for all purposes a female with testicles, and a penis. At least that is how I see it from my viewpoint. The equipment is there, but no longer has a reason for existing as it no longer does anything.

Just Me


Someone wrote…

Who said I have to be a boy or a girl? Why can’t I just be “me”? “Me” is pretty great and “me” doesn’t want to be one or the other.

All my life I’ve been labeled as a girl, and while there isn’t really anything wrong with that, no one asked how I wanted to be labeled, which is really just another issue, there really isn’t a specific label for me. Anything other than “me” just isn’t right. Is it really that complicated?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Question: Explaining the FtM Feeling


PeaceLoveTriathlon asks…

What’s a good way to explain the ‘FtM’ feeling? When someone asks, I say that I feel as if I’m trapped in the wrong body,and feel I should have been born a man, but they just get really confused. All ideas very much appreciated. Thanks!

Please post your response in the comments below.

Recommendation: Petition to legally recognize non-binary genders in the US


JR Baldwin recommends…

Petition to legally recognize non-binary genders in the US
A White House petition (an important first step)

This is an important first step to mainstream recognition of non-binary gender identity, not necessarily about changing policy outright.

It’s about creating knowledge for the average person around this issue. If the petition reaches 100,000 signatures, the White House must respond. Even if their response is not constructive, it is still news and will be reported in the news.

This is a first step to creating a common language and awareness around non-binary identity, and the narratives that emerge from the news reporting around the issue will be powerful.

When the issue is better known by the average person (especially mainstream LGBTQ*), directly contacting lawmakers to change policy will be effective and more heavily addressed, leading to actual change.

Editor’s note: This petition is still running till April 20, and so far has obtained ninety percent of the signatures needed!

Mother


Sun wrote…

I used to wish more and more for the mother role to hold me in my femininity, but recently I have been allowing old feelings to sit with as much grace and integrity in that same space.

I spent much of my younger life in a much more defined genderqueer role of more masculine female, and I know I am both, sometimes more one way, sometimes more the other, but more and more recently, I am both, sitting comfortably in myself without trying to hide or define, to hold on to, or let go. Just being me, in each moment, and its wonderful!!

What’s your experience?
