Blurring Gender Lines

Blurring Gender Lines

I met andogynous model Rain Dove and enterpreneur Abby Sugar at last month’s Queer Fashion Week. I was immediately struck by the important work they were doing—breaking down gender stereotypes, and taking the world by storm in their different ways. Then came this! Challenging normative assumptions of gender presentation, femininity and what it means to […]

Gender Fluid on the Rocks

Gender Fluid on the Rocks

Recently I informed a friend that I was looking girly and she replied: “What does that mean? You have flowers in your jockstrap?” How dare her! I wear boxers. It’s true–I’m masculine and feminine. I poke and I like to get poked. When I was a young lass of five with my short pixie haircut, […]

Thumbs down on “Tolerance”

Thumbs down on “Tolerance”

I do a lot of advocating on the bullying issue. As a survivor of both bullying and several bad suicidal attempts, I am well versed on the topic. Lately we hear so much about teaching tolerance to our children. I hate that word tolerance. To me it implies that kids should just accept that someone […]

Do I look Like A Boy?

Do I look Like A Boy?

In 1973 I wanted a haircut.  Maybe it was 1974.  I was in kindergarten. My hair was long, always in pony tails and a part of me that didn’t seem to fit right. I wanted short hair. Not quite like a boy but not quite like a girl.  I wanted something in between.  Something that […]

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 […]

The Dilemna of Whole Body Scanners

The Dilemna of Whole Body Scanners

People are concerned not only for their privacy but for a variety of other reasons when faced with the possibility of being subject to a full body scan at airport security check points. Privacy and what some deem illegal search and seizure seemed to be the main topics in the news and opinions articles put […]
