To the world at large:

No, I do not want to be "one of the girls."

I don't want to be "one of the boys," either.

I want to be "one of the skippy twee blue-haired pansy-ass genderqueer kids named Gerald," because that's what I am. I'm not a girl.* I'm not a boy.** I'm me.***

So stop trying to friggin' gender me already.****

With all due respect,
a skippy twee blue-haired pansy-ass genderqueer kid named Gerald



* Except when I am.

** Except when I am.

*** Except when I'm not.

**** Honestly, I could easily extend this to "stop trying to friggin' gender EVERYBODY already," because I have been reading queer theory lately and it makes me even madder about the gender binary than ever. And, um, I'm usually pretty pissed about it! AS YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED. Seriously, guys, can we just all chill out and be cool and do what we want to do without checking our Handy-Dandy Gender Guides to make sure it's okay first?

It is kind of strange how having blue hair is now a major part of my identity! (Especially considering I may or may not want to dye it a different colour.)

Oooooooh you just reminded me of this time my housemate's boyfriend (jokingly) told me something I'd said was heteronormative, so I told him to suck my cock

IT WAS AWESOME

And you're my favourite one!

(To be fair, it's not like that's a really broad sort of description.)

I suppose it would be more apt to say that that is also one of my favourite kinds of people.

I wish it were this easy to say that to people NOT on the internet. I can be as "whee! gender doesn't matter!" as I want, but then I go home and talk to my family and it's back to "why do you want to me something other than a girl? You've said you're not trans or anything, so what's the matter?"

Yeah, articulating this kind of stuff is a lot harder in The Real World.
