No Queer Girls Are Queerer Than Others

Resisting Femme Invisibility

The vocabulary to describe living in a gender outside of the strict binary male and female genders is limited, relatively new, and still constantly evolving. Even when I attempt to describe my current identity, what comes out eventually contradicts itself and runs in circles.

Semantics, semiotics and the use of the term ‘nonbinary’

Finding the right words to describe those, like myself, who don’t fit comfortably into traditional male/female genders and bodies is a bit of a tricky business. How do you contain a multiplicity in a single word? How do you indicate an infinite number of divisions? Increasingly, the term ‘nonbinary’ is used as a catch-all term. I’ve been known to use it myself. I have every sympathy with those who use it – it can be useful, and is certainly a step forward in this gradual evolution of discourse surrounding gender and sexes and being. But the niggling semantic/semiotic worries I’ve been having – well, they’ve stepped up.

What Transmisogyny Looks Like

This is a topic that has been vital to my understanding of the world over the past few years, but it's still relatively unknown outside certain circles of activists. When I mention it as an area of my work, I almost invariably have to explain what it is. The short answer is that it is the intersection of transphobia and misogyny that specifically targets trans women. But that dry academic answer never communicates the visceral and intense experience that it is. Here's a limited list of examples of what transmisogyny looks like. Every example on this list has a story (or dozens of stories) behind it.

I can switch at will between being a man or a woman.
It's not my problem if you get weirded out
because my body stays the same.

[image from ‘Sometimes the Spoon Runs Away With Another Spoon’ colouring book by Jacinta Bunnell & Nat Kusinitz. Two children, one in a dress standing, one in a shirt and tie using a wheelchair study a board with cross-out pronouns on it. Circled on the board is ‘ze’. Caption: “the new pronoun they invented suited everyone just fine.”]

If you’re going to colour this image please do not remove the author & illustrator names from the top, and please buy this book - it’s well worth it for yourself or a child in your life.
