My gender is me

Someone wrote…

I identify as Genderqueer. A lot of people tell me that I ‘look like a girl’ or I get the ‘but you’re a girl.’

The other one I got the other day after I’d explained my gender was ‘do you feel like a boy or a girl?’

Just because I look, dress, or act in a certain way it doesn’t mean that I’m not Genderqueer, not female, and not androgynous. My gender is part of me, but I am not my gender. My gender is me.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
