Potential in an Absence of Gender

Someone wrote…

I think it would be nice if EVERYONE was able to be first judged on their character, not what might be under their clothes. I think that androgyny might sometimes be a blessing, that some people should be forced by an absence of gender presentation to consider the PERSON standing before them.

What’s your experience?


And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I agree–except that too often, people get stuck in perceiving someone’s androgyny. Like, they focus on the lack of (apparent) gender, and still don’t judge someone on their character.

    Sometimes I feel I would like to wear a badge. It would say ” Don’t judge me by my genitalia”

    most of the time they’ll just force themselves to categorize you as male or female and just think about that though
