Can anyone else not wait until Fall so they can return to dressing in clothes that they actually like?

vaginastud asked: "Is it strange to want to be both male and female? It's just that some days I feel entirely like a guy, I want to dress like one and hide my boobs and just identify as one. I've always yearned for that almost my whole life. But I can't identify as trans, because there are other days where I love being a girl, and I love to be feminine and wear make up and be pretty. I feel stupid and weird, especially for realizing this so late in life. Is it possible to be both? Are there others like me?"

How you feel is totally normal and valid.  I’m no expert, but that sounds a lot like how my close friend who is genderqueer describes their own experience, although what you describe also fits the description of bigender as well.  And there are other genders which might better fit how you feel about yourself than bigender or GQ.  It’s up to you to decide what feels right and label yourself (or don’t, if you’d rather not!  That’s okay too) 

Followers who feel this way, feel free to respond too.

Non-binary trans person here. Just a misconception I see-

You can *definitely* identify as being trans because trans is usually considered an umbrella term that includes:

  • binary people (who identify with the gender opposite of the one that they were assigned at birth-sometimes referred to as transsexuals)
  • multi-gender people (who identify with two or more genders) 
  • androgynous people (who identify as being a sort of “mix” of or between male and female)
  • non-binary people (who don’t identify with being either male or female.)

I know there are some binary trans folk out there who would disagree with me on what qualifies as being trans. However, the more inclusive members of our “community” are of the mind that anyone who doesn’t identify as cis should be allowed to identify as trans. Having a broad definition of trans allows people to be more comfortable questioning their gender identity. It also makes resources more easily accessible to people who are less sure about their identity.

You’re more than welcome to not identify as trans if you don’t want to. Just don’t feel like you’re unable to identify as trans because you don’t identify as exclusively male.

"People of color, women, and gays — who now have greater access to the centers of influence that ever before — are under pressure to be well-behaved when talking about their struggles. There is an expectation that we can talk about sins but no one must be identified as a sinner: newspapers love to describe words or deeds as “racially charged” even in those cases when it would be more honest to say “racist”; we agree that there is rampant misogyny, but misogynists are nowhere to be found; homophobia is a problem but no one is homophobic. One cumulative effect of this policed language is that when someone dares to point out something as obvious as white privilege, it is seen as unduly provocative. Marginalized voices in America have fewer and fewer avenues to speak plainly about what they suffer; the effect of this enforced civility is that those voices are falsified or blocked entirely from the discourse."

Take a look at this cosplay from GaymerX. These are the women from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed that are too hard to animate.
