lasagne
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.

  • My non-binary experiences are valid.
  • My non-binary experiences are defined by me.
  • I do not identify other non-binary peoples’ experiences, and they don’t define mine.
  • Binary people do not get to define my or anyone else’s non-binary experiences.
  • I have the right as a non-binary person to refuse to accept people brushing me or any other non-binary person under the fucking carpet because our existences complicate their inaccurate (mis)understandings of gender.
  • I am real.
  • I exist.
  • I am valid.
  • I am real.
  • I exist.
  • I am valid.

    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.
