For a while now I’ve been slightly puzzled by the convergence of discourse about gender and aesthetic on tumblr. I see a lot of people trying out new vocabularies to describe one or the other or both (and it’s not always clear which), blending gender descriptors with typically…

Anonymous said: I'm AFAB and still not sure what my gender is, I just know that I'm not a girl. The thing is though, when I see myself in a relationship with a girl it feels like a gay relationship but when I see myself in a relationship with a guy it feels like a gay relationship as well...

KIDDING. You sound nonbinary. This means you’re not necessarily a boy or a girl— somewhere inbetween, maybe both, maybe something else entirely. That’s cool. A ton of trans friends feel similarly.

A researcher tells the following story about her own experience of discovering the seriousness with which young children take gender stereotypes. While interviewing 3 to 6 year olds about their career aspirations, she asked each of them what they would want to be when they grew up if they were members of the opposite sex. Their responses showed that not only did most of the children choose careers that fit the stereotypes of the other gender but also that their perceptions of the limitations imposed by gender were sometimes quite extreme. One little girl confided with a sigh that her true ambition was to fly like a bird, but she could never do it because she was not a boy! One little boy put his hands on his head, sighed deeply, and said helplessly that if he were a girl he would have to grow up and be nothing (Beuf, 1974 as cited by Lips, 2008, p. 401). —
