Both or neither?

Someone wrote…

Why either/or? Why not both or neither?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Thats honestly what I’ve always said. Either/Or is an elliott smith album, both/neither is my gender identity

    I’ve always identified as “neither” or “none of the above”. It’s my comfy space. ^_^

    i have to say both/neither sits much more comfortably with me as well. I love that others see this as an option too ^_^

    I actually changed my name to Aubrey. Because when I think of Aubrey, I’m not sure if I think of a boy or girl. I think of both. Biologically I’m a boy, but I never really feel like a boy, and I don’t ever make the effort to feel like a girl. A girl is not what I am for. But neither is a boy.

    I want to be comfortable as neither. I’m hoping in the years that will come. I feel like I’ve taken my first step to self identity.

    I tried to be one so long and failed miserably. Then I tried to be another for a while and was kind of a joke. Now I’m coming to find that genderqueer is a wonderful place with tress and a comfy spot by the river with a gentle breeze. Out there somewhere midstream on my island, watching the day go by.

    Both/Neither is me too. Being here on Genderfork is the first time I’ve really felt like I belonged.
