Society


Someone wrote…

I’m what society would deem a transman and my partner is what society would deem a homosexual man, though neither is true as we are both more complex than this.

Yesterday my cousin asked how we defined our relationship. It’s amazing how many people feel the need to ask that question.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Who am I?


Submitted by Jamie, who is both the model and photographer.

“Still trying to figure myself out. I’ve known I was really a boy all my life even though I was born a girl. Everyone always assumes I’m a ‘tomboy’ rather than transgender but now that I’m almost 20 I’m no so sure that that is who I am.”

Very much together

Society tells us that we are all alone in our gender non-conformity, yet here we are all, very much together :)

Question: Longer hairstyles for Genderqueer people


Sophia/James asks…

Hello! I have been considering getting my hair cut short to look more, well, genderqueer. It’s pretty difficult trying to convince others that I don’t identify as one gender, and I still haven’t succeeded, but I probably won’t be respected like that so easily since I’m only thirteen.
I’ve noticed that a lot of genderfluid individuals have short hair, and I’m sure anyone can see why that is convenient.

However, I’m curious to know if there are any longer hairstyles out there that would show me to be more visibly genderqueer? I’m not opposed to having it cut short to look more androgynous, but I still want to know what’s best for me.

Please post your response in the comments below.

Jayden/Jay


jay

You can call me… Jayden or Jay.

I identify as… a transmasculine genderqueer asexual person.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer ‘he’ or ‘they’, please.

I’m attracted to… cuddling and empathetic people.

When people talk about me, I want them to… remember that we are all born to die, so they should appreciate the times I share with them instead of belittling me.

I want people to understand… I’m uncomfortable with my body, but I don’t hate my inner self.

About Jayden or Jay.
Each year I age, I absorb people’s youth. I can’t dance to save my life or endangered species, but I can smile to brighten days and nights.

Recommendation: Is Anatomy Destiny?


Someone recommends…

Is Anatomy Destiny?
TEDxNorthwesternU: An Educational Video

Alice Dreger works with people at the edge of anatomy, such as conjoined twins and intersexed people. In her observation, it’s often a fuzzy line between male and female, among other anatomical distinctions. Which brings up a huge question: Why do we let our anatomy determine our fate?

There is also a transcript of the talk.

Dream


Someone wrote…

I had a dream last night. I was making out with what I thought was a boy and turned out to be a girl. I was attracted to her in both ways and I woke up happy that I subconsciously had the same response as I claim to consciously.

Undefined


Someone wrote…

I know that I want to be a woman. I know that I’ve never felt like a man. But I’m really scared about going through the process of changing who I am.

I think it’s for the best to change how I identify my gender, but I don’t know how to change it or what to identify as. For the time being, I’m just calling myself “undefined” and using the umbrella-term “genderqueer”.

What’s your experience?

Question: What should I change my name to?


Kayla (for now) asks…

I’d really like to change my name. I have a very feminine name (Kayla) and when I (try to) present as anything other than female, I find the name kind of holds me back.

I’m not out yet to anyone and I’d like to have everything figured out (like what pronouns and name I feel the most comfortable with) before I come out to lessen the confusion. I’d like to use either a gender neutral name or a guys name.

If any of you could give any name suggestions that would be great. I already looked at a bunch of baby name websites and picked out a few, but I’m still not sure.

Please post your response in the comments below.

Getting Creative


Reposted from fuckyeahnonbinaryfats

“I can bind my breasts, but I can’t camouflage my hips and thighs while wearing what I want. Nowadays, I resolve this by embracing the possibilities of mixing codes, wearing shorts and garters with a collared shirt and a waistcoat.”
