I Wonder


Someone wrote…

I am male assigned at birth and identify as genderqueer. I got some estrogen from a friend. I wonder if I just opened something I can’t undo. I wonder if I can transition to a more non-binary body. I wonder.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Profile: Chris


You can call me… Chris

I identify as… Genderqueer

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He/She

I’m attracted to… Women. Badass people. Trailblazers.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Respect me for who I am.

About Chris
nogenderfear.tumblr.com

I’m a 23 year old genderqueer person from the UK.
It’s tough expressing myself when no legal definition for ‘genderqueer’ exists in the UK. It seems people want to think of me as ‘Male’ constantly. Well I’m not.

Pronouns


Someone wrote…

My coworker of 6 months still misgenders me in conversation, he says because none of the other trans* people he knows care about pronouns. Just me.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Brennen



Brennen comes out to a parent. It’s as stilted as any other reality show, so possibly read this first if you’re deciding whether to watch the entire episode.

Out-ness and the pain of labels.


Someone wrote…

I don’t have a fight with my body, this frame of flesh I inhabit, its geography holds some hills and some valleys; maybe as a map it confuses people, but I’m not a representation of me, I’m me and it seems like all the words, for what I could be, just try to trim an effusive loving & expansive being into a pre-judge-able unit to be sorted like hardware.

Why does it feel like these labels are just a thousand ways of saying “not like me”?

I want the opposite effect when I introduce myself….

“we’re beautifully similar.”

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

What Makes a Man a Man?


Someone wrote…

I’m bigender, and recently I’ve figured out an excellent way to describe what one of my genders is and what kind of style is associated with it. Since it’s a gender that is not at all male or female, it feels great to be able to concretely define it. It has given me amazing confidence that this gender is in fact just as real as either binary gender.

However, this makes me want to define my other gender in a similar way. A gender which I’ve supposed is male for over a year now. Male is such a widely recognized gender that it doesn’t need to be defined as specifically, but… it would help give me more confidence that I have this gender, too. I wasn’t assigned male at birth, so I don’t have the privilege of being able to claim it without justification. And sometimes I fear that “I feel happier as male” or “looking in the mirror and seeing a non-binary man feels right” isn’t justification enough.

What makes a man a man? How do I know that what I’m simultaneously feeling is male and not some other gender?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Less Binary

If I presented less binary, I think the people at work wouldn’t take my transition seriously.

Photographing the Genderqueer Community


Reposted from PBS News Hour.

Question: Packing


Someone asks…

I identify as Androgyne and Genderfluid and I bind at times and have recently started to consider packing. (I don’t want to be male as I feel very androgynous, if I’m pushed leaning a little more towards the female side).

Where can I get a really small packer from so that it wasn’t too noticeable that I was packing? I want to be VERY discreet about it and I only really want to use a packer so that I know I’m doing it if that makes any sense?

Please post your response in the comments below.
