Anonymous asked: im unsure if i can call myself nb though, as a cis person. i mean, ive always been cis and look normatively cis. i conform. i feel im trivialising real struggle when i start to question my own gender?
question your gender, pick your gender apart, demolish your gender, revise your gender, acknowledge your gender as constructed and mutable, embrace change, embrace exploration, never let anyone tell you that rejecting cisness as something inherent and absolute - not the label, particularly, but what it stands for, in mind & body & dress & role & politics & love & sex & everything else - is an oppressive act. rejecting cisness is wonderful. i’m less concerned with whether people who are beginning to question their gender are “trivializing” my struggle than i am with the potential for harm reduction there is in rejecting gender as an absolute truth
