And I do exist.

Someone wrote…

If people call me dyke I wish I could tell them I’m genderqueer but that’s not a word in my language. I sometimes wonder if there’s a need for a word for that exists only in the US, but then I realize I’m not in the US either. And I do exist.

Dyke is really not something that applies to me – if anything, call me faggot. I think that’s something I’d actually have an answer to. It would be easier to have to be defensive about liking boys than it is being defensive about liking girls.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
