I now don’t like saying “non-binary gender”, even though I get what it means and I know thousands of people identify using this term.
This is why I don’t like saying non-binary gender:
When I say “Non-binary gender” I am admitting there are only two binary genders, male and female, in the first place.
Us humans can have any gender identity. People born with intersex bodily variations can have any gender identity. We can be a man, woman, both, or neither. It is important to stop conflating biological bodies with gender identity. They are not one and the same and they do not always match.
I truly believe that the male/female binary system is a social construct and myth that erases intersex existence. The male/female binary system is the human construct of a patriarchy that is penis obsessed and wants to make sure girls don’t get to penetrate. Intersex bodily variations have existed since humans have walked the Earth.
The “female” penis and the “male” vagina is nothing new, in other words.
