song against sex


Day 1: Your sexual orientation or gender identity. Be creative in your definition.

I would say I’m a transromantic, driveless, repulsed-but-tolerant semi-androgynous asexual. I’m self-sufficient, independent, semi-Romantic and I crush ALL THE TIME on fictional characters and the occasional celeb..actual people, not so much. I’m the girl who didn’t get “That’s what she said!” jokes until she Googled it one day when she was twenty-one and, when asked by a coworker if she was “freaky,” asked him to be more specific.

Soooo a guy I know (already a very “manly” kind of guy–if he has more masculinity to share with the world, I honestly don’t know where he’s going to keep it all) posted this on Facebook: “I’m releasing the lion that the world told me to keep caged… I refuse to calculate and avoid risks, I denounce the life of security and safety, I will no longer apologize for my masculinity… For my very nature. I seek the wild and unknown. Like the lion groans for freedom every night, so to does a man’s heart!”

Personally I’m not big on traditional gender roles, but I AM big on people being themselves. If an individual feels more “masculine” or “feminine” (according to society’s definitions) then bully for them. This, though, isn’t just a person accepting himself and his gender identity; it hits me as an open declaration of aggression and domination of his biological sex over mine.

So then I posted (a bit passive-aggressively, I’ll admit) that I would no longer apologize for my androgyny. He commented back:

“…And you shouldn’t have to apologize for whatever disease or fungus or whatever you say you have, Talia. Just get it taken care of and save us the details! :p”

Okay, yeah, thanks.
