I Detest the Gender Binary

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 184 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    My Life (Updated With Deeper Regressions And More Details For 2013)

    When I was first born into this world we quickly found out i had A.D.H.D, but only when I was 13 did we find out more. I am hesitant to tell you what else because I'm afraid you'll judge me too quickly. I don't suffer my symptoms from A.D.H.D anymore, But I was hard to discipline...

    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...

    Gender Blindness = Racial Blindness = Both Problems.

    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...

    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...
