I am Genderqueer

Someone wrote…

I recently came to realise that I am genderqueer – it clicked with me very suddenly.

It felt as if every confusion and unexplainable feeling I had in the past suddenly made complete sense. I am male, and accept my male body as it has always been more feminine, and it works with how I feel comfortable dressing. Throughout my teens and into my early adulthood I have always had a discomfort and difficulty in participating as and with other males, I thought it would change after I came out but it didn’t. I have since realised that, as a person, I do not identify myself as purely a male, but at the same time I don’t feel that it means I am female.

I have strong characteristics of both genders, but I do not feel that I identify more so with either one. I do not want to have a label, and to be categorised before someone gets to know me, I just want to be seen as a human and for my various characteristics and behaviours to not matter.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
