Please do not misgender Revolutionary War Hero, General Casimir Pulaski: Pronouns He/Him

  When I recently learned about General Casimir Pulaski, like when I have discovered other intersex people in history, I become elated and I celebrated.....but it was short lived.  Then my heart sank.  Here we were once again, in our binary world misgendering the past; a past that gave people like me more human rights… Continue reading Please do not misgender Revolutionary War Hero, General Casimir Pulaski: Pronouns He/Him

Eugenics & Genocide: The Male & Female Binary Myth

My thoughts for the day:  The invention of sex being only typical male or typical female bodies happened in the late 1800s. At this point, the government and medical complex work together and from that point forward only two options would be given at our birth. Thus, hurting all intersex and gender variant people who… Continue reading Eugenics & Genocide: The Male & Female Binary Myth

Poem: Was it my penis?

The void of emptiness. A hole in my heart.   Was it your assumptions, your embarrassment, your shame? Why won't you call me a friend now? Was it my beard, my penis, my appearing a gay man now? You said I had lied to you when I appeared a woman. Why did my becoming an… Continue reading Poem: Was it my penis?

These Human Rights Organizations and many more say it is time to Stop Intersex Genital Mutilation (IGM).

  All these organizations say it is time to give intersex children their self-determination over their own gender identity and allow the child to grow up to decide on their own if they need surgery or not.   Most surgeries done on intersex children are cosmetic in nature, unnecessary and done without the child's informed… Continue reading These Human Rights Organizations and many more say it is time to Stop Intersex Genital Mutilation (IGM).

Cultural Dysphoria: Stop conflating anatomical sex with gender identity.

    My thoughts today and the way I see it. I feel that one of the biggest problem society has right now, with the confusion of sex and gender, is that most people conflate anatomical sex with gender identity.  Thinking that they are both the same thing when they are not.  Most do not… Continue reading Cultural Dysphoria: Stop conflating anatomical sex with gender identity.

Always up against the wall: Could I go get my Masters in a gender binary world?

The Female Penis & The Male Vagnia

My own personal genital nonconformity, for me, brings a whole new meaning to being a gender nonconformist.  The way I see my vagina is a boy's vagina if it belongs to me, and I am legally a man now.  If a beautiful woman happens to have a penis, it is her penis.  Calling her penis… Continue reading The Female Penis & The Male Vagnia
