What Do You Desire or Like Most About Being Androgynous?

Recommended Posts

Guest Juniper Blue

I stole the idea for this thread form Carolyn Marie. I wanted to answer to both genders!

Okay ... for me ... I like the freedom to be gender fluid and to make the rules up as I go.

I love being strong .... I love being sensitve .... I love being able to express myself with any gender-tone or with an absolutely neutral tone. I like that I am taken seriously ... and Iike that I can be nurturing, sensitve and gentle.

What is the saying? I walk lightly but carry a big stick?? For me, it is somehting like that to be androgynous.

Hugs,

JB

I like everyone thinking I'm way younger than I really am. I'm 20 but service workers still call me things like "buddy", "kiddo", and "sport". Last year when I was getting my ID badge for my job, the security woman said "are you sure you're old enough to work here? You're just a baby!"

Yo, JB!

You KNOW I just had to chime in, right?

Actually, I do androgyny most of the time but am sporting rather the womanly figure (rather a bit more so that in my avatar picture here), and I just LOVE freaking freely in androgyny! Matches my personality! People give me that what-the-sam-heck-are-YOU? look! Now, THAT rocks!

Also, what you said? Rings true for me too!

Peace Out, You Rocking Androgyne, You! :friends: Lacey Freak-Show Lynne

Freedom.

To live without limits, barriers, or under the enforcement of external standards. Just to be free of all restrictions, in regards to gender as well as every other aspect of life.

What I love most about androgyny is that it gives me a feeling of independence. It lets me know that, just because I'm a biological female, I don't have to dress like a girl. I don't have to follow the rules of society. I can be masculine AND feminine and there's nothing wrong with that. It's who I am.

JuniperBlue:

Let's DO it, babes!!!

Just this evening, I'm at the mall popping androgyny bigtime:

Very elegant and classy Ralph Lauren sweater, classic ladies' skinny jeans, ladies' winter boots, silver necklace, silver bracelet, silver earrings however no makeup and no wig ... just my androgyne's baseball cap which is stylish, classy and matches the ensemble. Most people of my generation, especially the women, avoid me. The 20-something generation, especially the women, love me ... talk to me ... hug me ... invite me to shop with them ... do makeup with them ... do Starbucks and talk with them. Go figure!

So, at 2+ years on hormones now, why am I doing androgyny? Because, it beats the heck out of wearing those doggone wigs!!! True, I can't use the ladies' room all androgyned out, so I usually use the unisex one-seaters. When I do use the guys' restroom, rarely, 90% of the guys, when they see me at the urinal, GO USE A STALL JUST TO URINATE! Do you LOVE it, or what?!? What a freakin' SCREAM!!!

Blue, I've GOT to visit California so we can freak freely. Heck, we can go embarrass the ever-lovin' bejeeziz outta Carolyn Marie with our David Bowie Freak Freely look, style and vibe! You with top surgery and looking guylike, me with a womanlike figure ... we'll just fry minds left and right!

AND!!!

While I'm in California, I've just GOT to check out SoCal's CO resorts!!! Yeah, I'll do THAT by myself! I would NOT expect you to freak THAT freely! Yeehi!!!

Peace :friends: Lacey

Postscript:

So, by inference, have I corrupted Blue's subconscious mind? Have I planted seeds and visions of freaking freely in the sun and surf? Will Blue thereby entice her enticing partner to join her on a vacation to Southern France at:

Le Cap d'Agde ?!?

So, not really know what the sam-heck THAT is, Blue copies, pastes and launches "Le Cap d'Agde" into her web browser's URL window, goes to their main website, finds the pictures section and ...

Oh ... my ... GOD !!!

Now, she/he REALLY wants to go there with her/his partner and freak freely in the sun and surf!!!

:score::thumbsup::score:

Hey, 'bout time y'all REALLY freaked freely as free-spirited/high-spirited androgynes!!!

Post-Postscript:

Okay, okay, so it's NOT Caliente, but it IS Le Cap d'Agde ... some say THE FINEST CO resort in the world! They MIGHT be right!

Yep. Plus the feeling of confidence I get knowing that I can do anything I want to do, and damn what people think. I almost feel guilty for feeling so liberated, as my SO doesn't feel the freedom to dress as expressively of his gender as he would like (outside of home). Part of it is the enjoyment of wearing the clothes, but moreso it is the feeling I get from wearing the clothes I want that makes androgyny so empowering. It's having the option to go any way I want.

I like androgyny because I want people to think twice about me. I don't want them to look at me and make a snap judgement about my identity based on my figure or the way I carry myself. I don't want all the social baggage that comes with being explicitly male or female. I want people to know ME.

I want people to know ME.

Truth.

How many people has anyone come into contact with who think they know what to expect of you and how to treat you based on their first and only observance of you? How many people take one look at you, and consciously or subconsciously put you into a box, and decide from the stigma of that box on how to interact with you?

All too many for me.

Gender is one of many parts to this machine.

I enjoy not having a gender script or filter. Clothing isn't male or female if I like it then it is just plain MINE! I like the freedom to walk into the goodwill and freak out equally about everything. I enjoy making my clothing and my body a canvas for my individuality. I can indulge in all aspects of myself and not worry about "passing."

      Just waiting for my son to vacate the bathroom so I can get ready for my yearly medical. She's a new doctor and although I saw her once in Sept this will be my first medical with her. My electrologist is tomorrow so I have a little growth of white hairs but the denuding of the chin is noticable. I figure no makeup. The other significance is it will be my second medical since starting hormones so my second exam for breast cancer signs. (I check for signs but have never formally learned) For some reason i am kind of private with surgery so I will leave the details to my discussion with her today as I have approval from my transition doctor and shpuld be on a waiting list. The weathers lousy here right now and despite Vancouver's beauty in the spring and summer, the winters are mostly wet, dark, and dirty from debris being blown away. Still it's my home and it always looks worse outside than it actually is. 2 weeks from now is my transistion doctors appointment and I hope to have a surgery date by then or given to me then. Cheers Rachel

      Thank you for sharing about the issues facing you in Bulgaria.  I fear ignorance and fear of anything different has long been a tool used by politicians and "religious" factions to unite less educated individuals.  We face that to some extent here in the USA as well.  It is especially obvious with the present administration.  Hopefully enlightenment will continue and acceptance will win out.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I agree with Charlize as I would like to see it as well.

      https://www.coe.int/en/web/conventions/full-list/-/conventions/treaty/210 This is the document that brings chaos in Bulgaria's media and 'society'. The word 'society' is in quotes, because it reflects only a selected members and groups of privileged and oppressive people in the country, who  see themselves as the 'society'.   What in the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence also know as the Istanbul's Convention in Bulgaria, brings that wave of shock and hatred?    First it was the conception of 'gender'. In Bulgaria, for the regular people, 'gender' and 'sex' means one thing. For the scientist and intelligent people it's not one and the same. So the here is the definition that started the war between Bulgarians Christians and Nazis against the Human rights advocates and transgender and intersex people:
          So the from here, evangelistic-oriented and sponsored, pseudo-democratic organizations like 'Society and Values' started to talk about how the Convention will force the country to add 'third gender' to their Constitution, how trans women 'who are men' will compete with women and use their facilities (painfully, well known in USA and other countries, haters-strategy, yeah!) and that it will allow a 'same sex marriages' to be legalized. The doors of misery and stupidity, diverse the attention from the major goal of the Convention - to limited the violence in Bulgaria.   Bulgaria is country with a lot of psychopathic traditions related to sexism, patriarchate and chauvinism. The hate and discrimination against LGBTI+, women and emigrants, in the country are totally above 'normal'. The motives for hate are like taken from the Medieval. If we start to talk about the domestic violence, against vulnerable people and minorities, based on different categories, I must write a whole book in here.   So at this moment, at this point, the Convention can't have ratification (it's signed), because illiterates and haters are throwing their poison on the citizens, making them to believe that the Convention will force the people to have 'third gender' or even 'worst' - to accept transgender and intersex 'freaks'.    This is our reality, which is more like hell! The stupidity, hatred and complexes are spreading around dressed like 'Christian and family values'... We still can't predict the end.

      She certainly uses her assets well and i'm glad to see her given positive attention.  Hopefully the rest of us don't feel we have to live up to those standards of beauty.  I know i'm content simply being an old woman but .........a girl does dream sometimes   Hugs,   Charlize
    • Charlize
      I hope she gets the nomination at the least.  It sounds like a difficult but beautiful film.  Hopefully we will have the opportunity to see it as well.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi Tali and its really nice meeting you!!!   I prefer to hang out only in the LGBT world but it's also impossible to stay there forever. I attend a transgender group meeting every week and it has really helped me to stay grounded as you pointed out that being transgender has its own set of problems.   I fairly new here and I will say the girls and guys here are very accepting and over the top helpful in every situation I have seen presented. You have found a safe place and please feel comfortable here! Welcome and hope to see you on here often!!!   Tess
