Different things, different days

Someone wrote…

There doesn’t really seem to be a name for my gender identity, so I call myself different things on different days. I wish I could find an actual name so I’d know where I fit in.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I’ve always heard that called “genderfluid.”

    I know what you mean, it’s so hard to find that all-important identity space. I think it’s literally just a question of experimenting with different names and ‘labels’ until one seems to prevail. That said, it’s also cool to be comfortable switching between identities or having more than one, and there are a lot of people who’ll respect and adore you for that :] x

    I am a genderbeast, and I let people decide for themselves what that means. If you are searching for just a single word/category/label, maybe you can find a word that makes YOU happy and comfortable, and let the rest of the world deal with any incoherences.

    I’m mostly fluid in gender but sometimes I’m solid. Basically built that way I am. I still call myself different things but when I found my form it felt like jelly. Now I ask everyone to call me that so there are a lot less questions about my given name or other nicknames since that one feels right for me & everyone else. :D

    I’m going through something similar. Some days, I’m okay with femme; some days, it angers me. I’m looking into the ideas/identites of multigendered/genderqueer/genderfucked. Haven’t met anyone who identifies as any of these though. Yet. Best wishes.
