So… I have to wait to come out because I don’t want to ruin people’s holidays. Although I already told my brother that I was trans. I think this is actually good because it will give me more time to define and figure out exactly how I feel about my gender issues. Currently its like this:
I am not a male but I am not a female. I am something in between. I am both male and female… can’t there be another gender? And it doesn’t matter what I tell people they are going to view me as female or male…. that’s it. Simply because there is no word for it. I am so tempted to make up a word, but what would it be. Would there be a seperate word for someone who was born male and someone who was born female?
I was watching one show and the person on there was saying that they would refer to themselves as “gender queer”. I am not sure that’s easy enough to say as him or her. Plus you need different ways to say it. Maybe use hem (e is short) instead of him or her. But I still need a word. Shi instead of he or she (the i is long). I could pull from a the foreign words calalai or calabai from the indonesians. I am still pondering a word… Here’s a video about the culture with 5 genders.
Even if I do come up with a word… How do we spread it around and make it used in culture. How do we get it added to forms and stuff? Is this another way to fight for our rights?
