Some days I am all glitter and sparkles, and others I am all flannel and bow-ties.

Bathrooms


Someone wrote…

I’ve always been comfortable using women’s bathrooms when there aren’t any gender neural ones around. It’s a few other people who get uncomfortable.

They look at my hair and clothes, superficial details about me as a person, and assume I’m a man using the wrong bathroom. Some even get aggressive and yell at me as if I’m a predator. I feel that they should notice my comfortable demeanor and realize that I’m not in the wrong bathroom.

It gets old having to explain to strangers that sometimes women look masculine, every time I have to use the bathroom but, on the bright side, their exposure to me is a lesson on gender. Eventually I won’t have to deal with women who think they know my anatomy more than I do.

What’s your experience?

Someone recommends…

Gender 101

This is a series of interviews with a gender fluid activist. It explains general genderqueer issues and is a good resource to show to people who aren’t familiar with all this yet.

Matches


Someone wrote…

When I have clothes and a style that matches where I am at with my gender I feel more available, open, and loving.

Em


em

You can call me… Em

I identify as… 80% male and 10% female

As far as third-person pronouns go, … male pronouns work best

I’m attracted to… those who are both smart and kind

When people talk about me, I want them to… treat me as they want to be treated

I want people to understand… that it’s ok to be themselves, and as long as they are happy and not hurting others, it doesn’t matter what others think.

About Em
I am a nerd, a writer, a reader, a dreamer

Expressions


Someone wrote…

I’m so nervous about expressing myself to my family and community. Most of my family understand binarily trans people just fine, and so do a fair number of people where I live, but a lot of people are prejudiced against them – how are they going to react to someone who’s some third gender?

What’s your experience?

Recommendation: Sex Is All Fluxed Up


Asrik recommends…

It’s a great article on gender roles. (The blog is cool too but mostly less relevant to genderfork.) Here’s my favorite part of the post:

You are [sic] not a Woman, and I am [sic] not a Man. You may move through the world woman-ing, and I may do manly things, and we may enrich these roles and express them in a healthy way, but at core our bodies move in a dazzling, thundering, dynamic storm of circulating desire for the other-than-us, with potentials and predispositions, but nothing hammered down or definite.

I believe healthy, lightly-held roles make this whirling chaos of yearning more navigable, but they do not replace it. I feel fine to have chosen my version of the role of “man”, but it does not eclipse that one can pick from an infinite array of gender roles. Truly one must pity a culture reduced to the poverty of choosing from “he, she, and it”. He, she, and it? Really? Wow.

Faux Queen


Submitted by Brandi Amara Skyy who is the model, Carrie Strong is the photographer

“I am a cisgendered female living in a gay male drag queen world for over 15 years. I am a faux queen – a drag artist who practices the art of impersonating gay male drag queens. While I am comfortable in the physical gender that I occupy, the gender that I express is far richer and more complex.”

Pass

Recommendation: R. Freymuth-Frazier


Anna Mandolin recommends…

Self-Portrait In Moonlight, 20” x 24”, oil on panel, 2007, by R. Freymuth-Frazier

R. Freymuth-Frazier is a highly trained figurative oil painter. Instead of painting pretty landscapes or portraits in a traditional manner she uses her skills to paint portraits of women from various perspectives. From the hyper-feminine to the androgynous and even intersexuality, it’s all been explored in her large body of work spanning over a decade. It’s brave and strong work and really worth seeing.

Note: some of the paintings contain (artful) nudity.

Groovy tights

As a trans person, I spend all my time trying to present as a guy. But lately, I long more and more to dress in skirts, with combat boots and groovy tights.

Lines and scales


Someone wrote…

I feel stuck between thinking that because I’m female-bodied, everything I do is inherently feminine because I use my body and myself to express and be who I am. But then I also think that most of how I express myself and feel would fall under a normatively masculine umbrella.

Where does one draw the line between masculine and feminine? What tips the scales? Is my gender even related to my body?
