I Detest the Gender Binary

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 204 People

    How Society Emasculates The Truth.

    I consider myself post gendered. Let me explain what I mean: I think that we should stop assigning roles to both genders. I Think we should let nature decide what’s masculine and what feminine, let god sorts it out. Not man. Physical gender is VERY binary. I maintain that...

    Just Introducing Myself...

    I consider myself pansexual and polyamorous, [the actual orientation,] if any label.  I'm openminded to the possibility of varying degrees between 'straight' and 'gay' but, truthfully, I think that you just love whomever you love, and are attracted to whomever...

    The Pain It Causes

    The gender binary causes so much pain and sorrow in this world.  People are crammed into those little boxes that keep one from expressing the true self.  Throughout my life, I have had to fit in one or the other.  Mostly the male box.  I have allowed the...

    Non Binary Me

    Defined

    Gender Binary- the common idea that there are only two groups that a person, action, or behavior can belong in: male or female   This promotes sticking people into boxes, stereotyping labels slapped over their eyes and mouths. Which contradicts all forms of realistic...

    I don't have the same level of feelings

    that people have about the gender binary in here, but I do wish for a world where everyone doesn't have to be "male" or "female". While I am unsure of what "label" I fit under in terms of gender, I know that neither of these terms fit me. I want to add my gender to my profile...

    I Now Know (for Sure?)

    I took the Cogiati Test, now I am not one to believe that tests can layout what a person is all about completely. But this one helped me get a better veiw of myself, a veiw that I was sure of,  this just confirmed it. So where does this lead me? not in a different direction...

    Amazing That It Is Accepted At All

    when the notion of the gender binary has not a shred of medical evidence to back it up. Simply, accepted wishful thinking. ...well, wished for by some. Perhaps some day we can just all be who we are, dress how we wish, express our true selves, and the rest of the world will be...
