Genderfork is Looking for Diverse Submissions!


Hi Genderforkers,

our site is looking for more diverse submissions, especially in the profiles section!

Since the founding of Genderfork, we have been actively prioritizing and screening our posts so that we show a robust mix of people, even when most of the material submitted to us has not necessarily skewed in the direction of underrepresented groups. You — our readers have always been quick to let us know when we dip below a certain threshold, because our GF community craves a diverse mix of representation and they want to see themselves reflected in a myriad of ways. We want to continue to deliver that now that our submission stream has dwindled a bit, and we want to fill in any gaps where we may have been lacking, especially as regards with age and ability.

If you are a new visitor, or have a friend who you think would be interested in this site, please pass this link along — we would be super grateful if you did! In the meantime, we will continue to work on inclusion and diversity in our posts, profiles and other sections of the website.

Looking forward to your entries,

the Genderfork Team

Profile: between the hours of 8 and 10


You can call me… Between the hours of 8 and 10.

I identify as… Genderless, angry, and finally in a place where I can laugh about it.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … ‘She’ is fine because I can’t really be bothered to remind people and I don’t like making things about me.

I’m attracted to… Sincere kindness and understanding, people who have been through Something, humility, bizarre and dark humor, style, that certain vibe that comes from inside.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Come from a place of love.

I want people to understand… That being aware of something doesn’t absolve you of it, that people don’t reveal integral parts of themselves because they used to have to hide to survive, so have some understanding for the person who’s aloof or timid or ‘too’strange or whatever. I want people to understand the importance of being inclusive.

About Between the hours of 8 and 10.
I haven’t arrived at an amalgamation of theories, but rather a hazy, disjointed set of beliefs. I don’t know who I am really and am trying to not think so much. I’m learning ASL and cobbling and drums, so that’s pretty cool.

Profile: Lee


You can call me… Lee

I identify as… a polyamorous pansexual genderfluid revolving door.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … when it comes down to it I don’t really mind what others call me, but I tend to like gender neutral pronouns because it shows that they gave my identity some thought.

I’m attracted to… an open mind, great sense of humor, easy going personality, and someone who stands for what they believe in.

When people talk about me, I want them to… not feel afraid to ask questions, but be polite. I’m more than happy to answer but I don’t have time for rude and bigoted people.

I want people to understand… that my sexuality, gender, pronouns, etc. doesn’t affect them and they shouldn’t let such things get in the way of possible friendship.

Profile: Brandon / Clementine


You can call me… Brandon / Clementine

I identify as… Gender Fluid

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He or She depending on what personality I am currently using.

I’m attracted to… women, especially those who are also gender fluid. My quest to find that special one is something important to me and I’m starting to wonder if it will ever happen.

When people talk about me, I want them to… treat me like I am anybody else and not focus on what I am going to look like the next day.

I want people to understand… that it is difficult always wondering if something bad is going to happen to you just because the way that you are dressed. There is no reason why we shouldn’t be treating each other with respect and love. It also gets to be a bit expensive when you are maintaining two different wardrobes.

About Brandon / Clementine
I am 36 years old and I have been slowly discovering myself for a long time now. Growing up I always knew that I was different and didn’t quite fit into the traditional roles but never had a real idea of who I was. Once I learned what transgender was while in college it put me on the path to really get things figured out. Everyday though I am still learning new things about myself.

Profile: Phoenix


You can call me… Phoenix

I identify as… An androgynous agender punk

As far as third-person pronouns go, … They/them are preferable, but he/him are okay as well

I’m attracted to… Androgynous or masculine women, genderqueer people, honestly if you’re a genuine person who speaks from the heart you’ve probably got a chance.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Focus on who I am as a person rather than my gender. I get that it’s a lot to take in for some people, but it’s important to respect others for who they are. If I do something truly shitty, judge me for that rather than how I present myself and what I am.

I want people to understand… Just because I have a biologically male anatomy and am happy with said anatomy doesn’t mean I’m a guy. And just because I’m not a guy doesn’t mean I’m therefore a girl. Honestly, the world would be a better place if we threw out the ideas of “male” and “female”. They’re outdated societal means of shoving people into boxes to control them (and honestly, most people don’t completely fit into these boxes).

Profile: Taylor


You can call me… Taylor

I identify as… A polyamorous genderqueer/-fluid. I am physically a male, but I carry my strong feminine side with me every day. There are days when I feel like a woman and days when I feel like a man.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t know. I have had several times, when I have found myself confused when referred as a male, when I have been feeling feminine. Guess a feminine man would be somewhat correct, even though it doesn’t cover it completely through.

I’m attracted to… Women, especially tall and feminine ones, even when I have my female days/times. When it comes to sex, in my female times I don’t want/need intercourse at all, because it would feel weird.

When people talk about me, I want them to… focus on my personality, rather than gender. The people around me know that I act very feminine from time to time, but that’s only half the truth and I’d like to keep it that way.

I want people to understand… that my style of dressing up and my taste about culture are a mixture of my both sides. I’ve always talked up how men can like feminine things, but I don’t want most people around me to know how I actually feel about them inside.

About Taylor
An academic genderqueer with a family.

Profile: Derek


You can call me… Derek

I identify as… genderqueer

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m not particular, really. Weird to say, but I think I would prefer “it”, if it were completely up to me. I realize how “it” can seem insulting, or like you’re a “thing” and not a person, but it just feels neutral, to me.

I’m attracted to… Women. I have a definite tendency towards a more tomboyish vibe, but it’s not a strict rule or anything.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Trust that I know me more than they do. I will in turn trust the same for everyone else.

I want people to understand… The “just want to/trying to be different” thing is the worst kind of catch-22. If you don’t argue against it, they get to stick with their assumptions and misunderstanding, but if you do try to argue, it’s treated as proof that you “just want attention”. You can’t win against this dismissal.
