Sometimes we feel male, and sometimes female. Often, we're someplace in between...or else we're both or neither . . .
This is a haven for anyone who feels they don't fit into the gender binary. Agender people, third gender, all sorts of trans*people, and more are welcomed. So are genderqueer people of all sorts.
Friends to the community or people who want to learn are always friends of ours, too, so don't be shy and feel comfortable asking anything!
We also blog about gender issues in general, topics that seem of interest and/or related to our community of followers. The topic is genderfluidity, though, so questions that are primarily about sexuality are not our specialty; there are other blogs for that.
Our askbox is right here--you can submit anonymously if you prefer that...and, even better, we have the submit box, which can include links and pictures and better looking text! It's groovy! Frequently Asked Questions, and Tags
I like this, but honestly, I think that it should stick to Gender/Sexuality Minorities/marginalized identities (I don’t think intersex technically falls under GSM because it’s sex, not sexuality or gender, but I think that should be included for sure).
I want to remake a version of this without androsexual, gynesexual, androgynesexual, heterosexual, cis female, and cis male. It’s not that I have something against any of these identities, it’s just that positivity for a normative identity that faces no systematic discrimination seems a little bit devaluing to the struggles of people who are non-normative. I’m not going to say I am heterosexual-positive. I am ALLY-positive, including heterosexual allies, but heteros who expect me to change myself to fit their mold do not get my “positivity”. It’s not a double standard in “blindly” supporting queers while not “blindly” supporting hetero/cis people. Hetero/cis people saying they feel discriminated against (mostly on the tumblrverse) is a case of “check your privilege” in my opinion. I absolutely disagree with the identity policing I see some non-heterosexual and non-cis queers participating in, saying you can’t be heterosexual or cisgender, because that’s absolutely ridiculous. I am IDENTITY-positive, so maybe I’ll add that.
My point is, if this were about ethnicity/race, wouldn’t it strike as odd to say “this journal is white positive”? I just think that positivity is for groups/practices that face opposition or are stigmatized.
Again, it’s really not selfishly motivated. Many of the things I am -positive for are things I don’t identify as. And there are things I identify as that are not discriminated against and therefore shouldn’t have a -positive. I’m monogamous. I am poly-positive. I don’t believe there should be a monogamy-positive badge.
queer-positive (and all those queer identities)
feminist-positive (I am a feminist, the wording of that seems odd, but I’d use such a badge, for sure)
