I Crashed Chick-Fil-A

I Crashed Chick-Fil-A

Ah Chick-Fil-A, you never cease to amuse me. For over six months I have been watching them erect a Chick-Fil-A right outside my local mall.  I have heard people spouting their love for the chicken sandwiches and begging March, and the grand opening, to get here. Most people in this town are probably unaware of […]

Gender Confessions

Gender Confessions

Recently I took part in a project regarding gender variances. Contributors were asked to send in photographs of a phrase that described how they identified and then a “confession” revealing something that could be perceived as “off” for someone that identifies as such. I made five submissions: I am genderqueer. I have a vagina….but I […]

Gender-Bending Day in High School

Gender-Bending Day in High School

A conversation with a bunch of high school students certainly gives one food for thought. Recently I had a friend sit with a group of teens at a school in Texas. It was Sadie Hawkins day. Back when I went to high school that meant the girls asked the boys to a dance. Sadie Hawkins […]

Boxers and a Bra

Boxers and a Bra

I haven’t spent nearly as much time writing my thoughts as I have been thinking them. With so much happening these past couple of months I must admit I run out of time in the day before I run out of things I need to accomplish. Sometimes taking the time to write feels selfish when […]

My Brain is a Many Gendered Thing

My Brain is a Many Gendered Thing

Harry Benjamin Syndrome is just that, a syndrome. It is a medical condition that ultimately explains what many people have long since called a psychological phenomenon; transsexualism. I first read about this condition on a blog. Eternally seeking to explain my gender oddities away, I naturally read and researched the topic of HBS. I learned […]

Gender is Not Sex

Gender is Not Sex

Watching a recent show on transgendered people reminded me of a common thread I have noted since first advocating for transgendered folks, especially female to males (FTMs); genital reassignment surgery and its lack of necessity for many. At first I was quite confused as to why someone who was so obviously born into the wrong […]

Beyond the Binary Gender Model

Beyond the Binary Gender Model

Setting aside what genitalia one is born with, most people conform to the notion that gender is made up of females and males. While most people are content with living the expected lives of the gender they were assigned according to their genitals, there are many who feel their gender is completely opposite of their […]

When Identity Boxes Collapse

When Identity Boxes Collapse

Identifying as a lesbian for most of my life has given me a place to belong. Even when I produced my two children the ‘old fashioned way’, in my eyes, I was just a lesbian having heterosexual sex to create a child. Bisexual was never an option for me, even though I have had relationships […]

The Genderqueer Male

The Genderqueer Male

I realize my world and opinions are that of a lesbian genderqueer. However, as a female born genderqueer, I often forget that genderqueer is not only a female identified phenomenon. While I do not personally know any biologically born males that classify as genderqueer, I am sure they exist. To me, genderqueer represents someone that […]

My Jersey Shore

My Jersey Shore

My first ‘long term’ college relationship lasted almost three years. Annie was a sailor born and raised on the Jersey shore.  Her last name was Italian, but her world was in a universe very different from the popular cable TV show.  Her Sicilian American father held the highest civilian security clearance in the local military […]
