Profile: Genderkid

You can call me… genderkid

I identify as… Transboy for now, but I’ll grow up to be a transman, assuming all the responsibility this word implies. The “trans” part is important – my history is deeply different from a man’s.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He, him, his (although gender-neutral pronouns are fine, too)

I’m attracted to… Masculinity. I get gayer by the day.

When people talk about me, I want them to… if they talk about my gender identity, I hope they treat it like they treat any other characteristic. That way, people can identify with me as a person and maybe expand their mind’s horizon.

I want people to understand… that my gender is not within the binary.

I’m willing to explain myself, so don’t be shy! Just be respectful.


About genderkid
I ( am just a kid discovering my male-ish gender identity, but rediscovering my femininity at the same time. I read as much gender theory as I can and think up my *own* theories as much as I can. I want to study gender identity through anthropology or sociology.

I’m also part of Argentina’s first secondary-school LGBT movement. I’m currently trying to get my school to call trans students by our chosen names.
