Recommendation: Gender, Perception, and Dreams

A reader recommends…

This is a somewhat long, but quite interesting, article written by a pansexual semi-cisgender woman about her struggles with her own gender identity, her relationship with her FTM partner, and the ways in which gender expresses itself in our subconscious. She discusses the ways in which gender is just one of many characteristics which differentiate us, and explains that to her androgynous sensibilities, it’s a rather insignificant characteristic.

    Man, I just sent in a quote about my dream-gender! Here’s a list of what I’ve been in my dreams-

    -A cis woman.
    -A cis man.
    -A male-identified intersexed person. (BTW the website says that intersexed isn’t a word. Might want to change that.)
    -A consistently passing, non-op trans guy hanging out with a trans woman at some sort of gender convention that included an awesome water slide.
    -Two people at the same time- a little girl trapped inside a house and the little boy who helps her escape.
    -A woman who usually presents in a very masculine manner, and then one day has to get all done up in girl-drag for a business meeting. (With Eddie Izzard? My dreams are weird.)

    What about you guys? Am I the weirdest person here?

    he he I’m a biologically female pansexual gender queer who inherited/learned my dad’s man habits and desperately try to avoiding doing anything in common with my mother, whom I hate. ???? wierd. I hadn’t really thought of myself as a “type”.
