About Andy
I don’t really do self-promotion. That being said, I’m 30, faab, but definintely more in-touch with my masculine side. I’m a diesel mechanic, or I at least I like to think I am. I’m not unfriendly, but I come off that way because I’m socially awkward.

Genderfluidity


Minefloozle wrote…

I’m genderfluid, and I realized it less than a year ago– before then, I don’t remember ever thinking that my gender was anything other than “female.” So when I go for days without my gender changing, I start to question how well “genderfluid” fits me, and I get scared… I love being genderfluid.

I wish I hadn’t internalized so much doubt about it being a valid identity.

What’s your experience?

Non-traditional labels


Someone wrote…

Part of the fun about being genderqueer is coming up with non-traditional labels. My go-to ones are gendermixed and transqueer (which also take the form of transmixed), but I’m a huge fan of andro-sparkly, gender flexible, gender non-traditional, and sugar masculine.

What are your favourites?

The unrealistic state of beauty standards


Someone wrote…

My first year of gender non-conformism has already given me so much respect and empathy for the social beauty pressure women have to deal with.

I’ve always been so against unrealistic beauty ideals for women, yet here I am now comparing my 40-year-old male-bodied self to thin gorgeous millennials on Pinterest or whatever, and feeling bad about not matching up.

What’s your experience?

Recommendation: What the Night Demands


Someone recommends…

Book cover of What the Night Demands

I love it because Miles Walser is a great poet. Miles wrote some very touching stuff about trans issues, and especially if you are FTM I bet you will love this, but no matter who you are you will love the writing of this cute as hell and intelligent writer.

You can find a nice blog of Miles, where there is a lot of poetry recommended…

I know who I am


Someone wrote…

I’m feeling more queer than ever, yet my appearance is more femme than ever. I’m comfortably wearing skirts for the first time in my life. I no longer worry about the way others perceive me because of them. I know who I am.

What’s your experience?

Backyard Barbeque


Submitted by Able Gender, the model.

” This sort of came together out of the blue. I had put on a fake moustache, my friend handed me his sunglasses, and I was drinking a coke. I call it “backyard barbeque” because it reminds me of the backyard parties my parents used to have, and it kinda looks like some of their friends.”

Question: Feminine but not quite?


Izzy asks…

I don’t feel 100% feminine but I don’t really identify as being androgyne, agender or masculine in any way.

It’s fairly hard to express and it’s really only something I’ve started thinking about relatively recently so I’m not sure how my identity will shift or what I’ll end up feeling comfortable referring to myself as.

I regard myself as mostly feminine but it just doesn’t feel quite right – I realise that this falls under the genderqueer umbrella; is there a specific term for individuals who feel the way that I do?

Profile: Destin


GFDestin

You can call me… Destin.

I identify as… an omnisexual gynephilic genderqueer polyamorous female atheist, feminist, vegetarian, and social justice warrior.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t like how awkward gender-neutral pronouns are. She/her/hers, he/him/his, they/them/theirs are all okay – call me what feels comfortable to you. I told Facebook to use gender-neutral pronouns to describe me.

I’m attracted to… primarily females/women/femininity romantically, emotionally, and sexually; trans*/genderqueer folks sexually; everyone else besides cishet male mainstreamers emotionally and demi-sexually. Intelligence, emotional maturity, creativity, open-mindedness, individuality, independence, wisdom, insight, and vision.

When people talk about me, I want them to… see me as I truly am, not as they want me to be. I want them to care enough to want to get to know and understand the real me.

I want people to understand… Labels are simple. Individual realities are complicated. I’m complicated.

About Destin.
The pic is of me at 14. I’m 23 now, but I pretty much look the same. I started this site for gender and sexual minorities called Queer Social Justice. Our website is queersocialjustice.weebly.com – I’m Captain Jackelyn Harkness-Sparrow on there.

Ah-ha moments


Someone wrote…

I’ve had a few “ah-ha” moments in this past year of gender identity exploration that have really helped me get past a bunch of fear and insecurities. For instance…

One of the first things I did was to get a pair of tall women’s riding boots (I’m a bio-male human person). When I wore them out in public I got such a wide range of comments and questions about them, and NONE of them had anything to do with them being women’s boots. Some people made horse jokes. Someone thought I was being “fancy”. Some guy at a nightclub said, “Sick boots, bro! Are those military?”

It clicked immediately for me that you just can’t control how other people contextualize what you are expressing. Everybody sees things through their own lens and, really, the only thing that matters is how I see myself through my lens. I don’t even care if somebody kinda makes me fun of me anymore. That’s their problem.

I would love to hear nuggets or experiences that other people have found especially valuable!

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
