Unflappable ambiguity.

Someone wrote…

I’m thinking there aren’t enough words in any language to describe differences we feel from the accepted mainstream. Perhaps instead of having more words, we all need less. One word to describe everyone. Maybe the word should just be “us” and/or “we.” Lovely, constant, unflappable ambiguity, that reflects just how we feel, just who we are, but is generous and kind in its goal and ability to encompass everyone.

If you could pick one word to describe everyone, what would it be?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Yeah, but… I want to be different. I like being ME and I.
