I don’t need to find a name for my gender.

Someone wrote…

You know, I’ve decided that I don’t need to find a name for my gender. I think the next time someone asks, I’m just going to say that I’m a Llama.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Yeah, when someone asks me my sexuality (in those cases where it isn’t invasive and inappropriate) I have started to just say purple. Pansexual would be more accurate, but I’m kind of tired of people thinking that I am going to run off and do naughty things to my all-clad.

    But are you a boy llama or a girl llama? *shot*

    (Forgive me!)

    Hey, Moose, don’t judge those of use who are sexually attracted to all-clad.

    Heh, I like that Moose! I might start saying ‘purple’ too! (Not that I actually get asked very often in inappropriate situations.. but still!)

    And cheers for saying ‘Llama’! Llamas rock. xD

    Oh! And lol Perry!

    My answer is neither. My mom asked me if I wanted to be a boy or a girl last night, I said neither. She was SO confused, but it was funny.

    I’m thinking “dinosaur” myself, honestly…

    xD I like that, A. “I’m a gender dinosaur.”

    @Anonymous: Stomping down gender barriers wherever I go! =D

    I like that! Mind if I call myself a llama too from now on? :D


  14. Vincent

    I think I’m going to start using llama too. :D

    Some forms of shark practice asexual reproduction. I’d be too cold as a shark.

    I’d be a tiger, except that there are now more tigers in Texas than in Asia and I don’t want to live in Texas.

    I think I’ll be an aspen. They can continue to live underground after their above ground tree has died and re-emerge after many years as a new tree.

    I quite like being a carrot, despite (or because of ?) the phallic connotations :D

    I guess my gender is carrot, and my sexuality is orange dildo :D But maybe tomorrow I’ll be a pumpkin (as long it’s orange…) with a harness.

    My totem is the seahorse, so I just tell people I’m a seahorse. If they can’t “get” it after that… well *cough* they must be pretty dense and not worth my time. Sounds harsh, but it’s nowhere near the crap I have to put up with around here. *sigh*

    (I’m assuming they bother to research the seahorse.)

    When I get that question, I usually respond with the first noun that comes to mind. These have included pasta, shoes, and fedora.

    On a semi-related note, when my mum was pregnant, if people asked if it was a boy or a girl she would say “yes.” (Turns out she wasn’t entirely right, but nevertheless).

    @Meirion – or she was entirely correct. Very interesting spelling of your name. You look a lot like Woody Guthrie in your picture.
