I'm Here. I'm Genderfluid - Get Used To It!
My genderfluid identity is not an invention of Tumblr. It’s who I am. Do not reduce my gender identity to a figment of Tumblr or any other modern creation.
I have identified as genderfluid for most of my life. I’ve identify with all genders. My gender identity changes. Sometimes, my gender changes at time intervals. Other times, I feel distinctly masculine or non-binary. I am proud to be femme, and onlookers would think I was a girl due to my presentation.
But the truth is my clothes often don’t “match” my gender identity. I’ve always felt as though I’ve transcended pronouns to the point of being utterly indifferent to what people call me. Why on Earth would I mind if someone called me “he” or “they” when there are a lot of moments when I identify heavily with masculine and non-binary identities? I don’t feel misidentified by any particular pronoun.
However, just because I don’t identify with a particular pronouns doesn’t mean I don’t support the pronouns of others. I feel as though it’s important to call people by the gender pronouns of their choice. It doesn’t mean I don’t support everyone’s freedom to express their gender identity as they choose.
Transgender people have been around for a long time. I do not need history to justify my existence. What I'm saying is what matters. It’s about time that we start respecting people and their gender pronouns. It doesn’t matter how often those gender identities change or transform. We should be respected for whom we are, exactly how we say we are. Our gender identitities are real,
It doesn’t matter how I present. It doesn’t matter how I dress, act, or change. What matters is that I am genderfluid and transgender. Tumblr didn’t invent me - I am my own existence. Stop reducing my genderfluid identity to some random website I don’t know much about.
