When we talk to someone for the first time, before we start the conversation, we often have a lot of questions about the person and what they look like. This will most likely include a few questions about their gender, weight, height, and age. In this post, I’ll discuss how to determine your digital gender and what questions this means for you.
I’ve seen some people call themselves “transgender” but I’ve never met one personally and never will. I’d call them “genderqueer” because they are not binary either male or female. Genderqueer people are also very fluid in their gender expression and identify with neither one but as a whole are just genderqueer.
Gender Identity Disorder is a condition where a person exhibits a pattern of feelings or behavior marked by either one or the other, and having both. It is also known as Gender Dysphoria. Many people experience this condition for the first time as a person they know or who they are with. This is because they do not know how they are feeling. For some people, this is a permanent condition. For others, it is temporary.
Gender Identity Disorder is a condition where genderqueer people are known to have difficulties with identifying with either one or the other. This happens because someone who experiences this gender identity disorder either identifies with a gender that is different from what they are or that they do not identify with. For example, someone who is a woman who experiences gender identity disorder could identify with either a woman or a man. The same goes for the genderqueer. It is not an exclusive condition.
With a disorder like genderqueer people, who identify themselves as neither male nor female, they have a very specific set of experiences. They may experience gender dysphoria, which can be an extreme discomfort with having the body that they are born with or the mind, and they may experience gender non-conformity, which is the misgendering of someone who does not identify with one of their gender roles.
Genderqueer people are often the target of bullying and harassment from other people who identify as genderqueer, as well as from the dominant culture that they are perceived to be out of. Some of the more extreme manifestations of genderqueer people’s gender dysphoria are described on the internet, some of which are referred to as “gender-fluid” or “gender-altered”.
While genderqueer individuals may identify as being transgender, they may not feel as comfortable with their gender identity and may feel it is more of a social construct rather than a real identity. This is because a large part of genderqueer’s identity is about being a tomboy, and the term ‘transgender’ is a term of respect and inclusion.
Many people are referred to as gender-flown, gender-altered, or gender-fluid. Many of these terms can have the same meaning. For example, gender-altered individuals who identify as genderqueer may feel that they have a gender identity that is different than their sex assigned at birth. Gender-altered people may feel that they are transgender or may be genderqueer. They may feel that they are simply expressing themselves as they see fit.
The problem I see with this term is that it gives cisgender people the false impression that they can identify as trans people, or that it is okay to not identify as trans. But we already know that it is not okay to not identify as trans, and when cisgender people feel that they cannot go by gender, they feel very uncomfortable and they may even go so far as to feel they have a mental illness.
Trans people do not feel that they are expressing themselves as the gender they prefer. They are expressing themselves as a gender that they wish to be who they feel they are, with the same feelings and identity that they wish to have. It is wrong to think that it’s okay to not identify as trans, but it is not okay to not identify as cisgender. To do so is to deny the full humanity of our identity.
