So since you're FTM but also genderqueer you identify as a boy? I guess its none of my business and I don't mean to offend! I'm just trying to figure this out. As someone who is trans but also genderqueer do you feel the need to transition to male anatomy or are you content the way you are now? You're perfect now anyway!

Well, the primary reason I identify as FtM/boi now is because early in my transition, I was very into presenting as butch, male, and masculine. Hormone therapy has provided me with some changes that help me feel more comfortable in my body (having facial hair, fat redistributed, and a lower voice), and in certain contexts I do feel that at least parts of me are male. Gender is so, so complicated and the more I learn about it (I am an avid reader, especially of zines and books related to gender/sexuality. I also spend a fair amount of time on the internet digging around, and I also spend a lot of time talking to other trans*/non-normatively gendered folks, and doing activist/social justice work), the more I realize how vast of a galaxy gender is. Genderqueer seems like a better fit now, since I’m sorta both and neither, same for non-binary, and Unicorn.

I don’t see my anatomy as fully male, because I was assigned female at birth (read: I have ovaries, a vulva, and developed breasts during puberty). I think that this tricksy business of assigning sex/gender (Intentionally using both of those words because they are both some combination of social construction and physiology) based on phenotype (physical characteristics) is outdated and doesn’t tell much, other than what we see on the outside.. Not many doctors have genetic/chromosomal tests ordered upon birth. If anything, I see my anatomy as “GlitZ”, because it is my body and no other living kreature has a body just like mine. Hormone therapy most definitely helped my dysphoria, though. My voice didn’t used to sound like mine, I would shut down during sexual contact, and I felt like the face I saw in the mirror wasn’t exactly right. I still have some big triggers around my chest, but I no longer have to bind because most of my body feels like home now. Surgery used to be more of a priority, but I could probably never afford it anyway.

I really like your hair! What hair dye do you use?

Oh, thank you so much! ^:) I use a combination of dyes.. My favorites are Special Effects and Punky Color. SPFX has recently been unable to produce certain colors to ship, so it is getting harder to find some of the colors. Punky is great for most colors, and smells fantastic! There are certain shades of Manic Panic that seem okay (their yellow is like a highlighter and glows in black light, A++), but sometimes they don’t last at *ALL*. ^:{

I also don’t ever wash my hair with shampoo, and on the rare occasion I am not wearing a shower cap, only icy cold water touches my head (hot/warm water encourages bleeding/fading of the colors).

i think it’s important that myself and other white ppl remember that we can not even begin to truly understand the pain and trauma of what is happening in ferguson, nor can we grasp the anger and sadness black communities experience due to this situation. all we can do is stand in solidarity, listen, and not derail or take the focus away from the true face of racism and white supremacy.

we need a word for misogyny aimed at nonbinary trans people who are perceived as afab. because it is absolutely lethal. and there are certain trans radicals who say that shit shouldn’t hurt because ‘well you’re not ~really~ a girl’ which is a nice thought and all…but it doesn’t make you any less…
