Kind of similar to one of the last asks, what would a parent call a NB offspring? also, what about a NB significant other?
An NB offspring would be a child; “This is my child/kid.” or “I’m their parent.”
A S/O could be many things, datemate, personfriend, or petnames/cheesy things like sweetheart, other half, partner, or anything like that.
Hi. Been having issues with my gender identity. Thought I was a cis woman but new trans friends/research made me unsure whether I really am or just assumed b/c that's what I've always been called. Try to think about my experience of gender & can't really find anything- only feel like "one of the girls" when targeted by sexism. I don't know if that's b/c I don't personally grasp "gender" as an emotional idea, I'm a fish that doesn't understand water, or I'm agender. Any advice would be helpful?
Well, first, sorry about taking so long to reply I was trying to gather my thoughts.
So, that’s very similar to my experiences, I grew up being told I was one gender, and I have a neurological disorder which impairs some basic thought processes. So until I was about twelve or so I just thought that my feelings of almost complete neutrality where normal for people of my assigned gender to have. I finally told myself I was of a neutral gender, then looked it up to see if that was a thing other people felt. And I discovered Micah’s bloghere. And everything sorta clicked together.
So, I don’t know if that answered your question/is the right advice, but I tried. If you wish to correspond more you can come off anon and I’ll give you my personal, or you can continue messaging me through this blog. Or my followers can help if they wanted?
For the ask about referring to people in terms of the gametes they produce, it's actually practice at certain clinics to refer to people as EP(P) and SP(P), egg-producing or sperm-producing people.
Oh yes! This sounds amazing, I will start doing this also.
idk of this would work for mothered/fathered but how about "parented"? "they parented 3 children" "they are the parent of that child"
That sounds beautiful! Yes!
are you raocow? (your "what's up y'all" thing looks a lot like something he would make)
No. My personal is spydretheunicorn though, if y’all wish to follow me. :D
Tbh I wish there were shorter phrasings for things like "person who can get another person pregnant" But most things end up being binarist or insulting to someone in some way. How about spermatogenitor? One who is the origin of sperm? It sounds badass at least. Likewise we could have oogenitor as the person who makes eggs. Or uterary/penary person- bearer of a womb/penis? I don't know, I like the Greek/Latin roots, it sounds more official and snappy.
Yeah… Followers? Do you have any terms we could use instead of “mother” or “father” in terms of “(s)he mothered/fathered three children.”
What’s your favorite Thanksgiving memory?
Not all who identify as neither male nor female ID as Neutrois. Hello!
Hey, I’m putting together a documentary theater project on nonbinary/genderqueer/genderfluid/agender young people. I’m looking for nonbinary people under 25 to do brief text chat interviews with over Skype or Chatzy. These interviews will be incorporated into the text of a play that will increase nonbinary visibility. Could you possibly publish this post on your blog and tell people interested in participating to contact me?
Hey I'm 17 and interested in being part of your documentary. I'm in a residential and don't often have the ability to Skype or such. If you are welcome to having me participate and I can give you my email or something to contact better.
This is not my documentary. Please contact kayla-bird.
