That's not bad at all. Gender is fluid in all cases. YOU decide what parts of gender you want to express. It's for your benefit. Not anyone else's.

I love being recognized as male. I used to work at Dairy Queen (I was of course presenting as a female but I do have short hair. So I guess as a butch lesbian). My best friend was the manager. One time this customer got angry and said "Why don't you have that lil blonde boy go make me a hamburger??" My best friend and manager totally defended me. I honestly laughed when I heard what happened. I didn't mind it at all.

This makes sense too.

One of the highlights of my life was dancing with RuPaul a couple years ago. What a booty! Embarrassingly, it was at the opening of a Pottery Barn but it was in The Castro so it had a lot of fabulosity going!

Agreed! You like who you like, I think you will be sexual attraction in either gender or both genders at once. Sexuality is such a grey area, there are always exceptions and that's exactly what this book dives into head first. The grey matter of gender and just the true nature of wanting someone physically and getting that satisfaction from it.

Gender in itself can be blurred. I play with my gender all the time. There are some days where I will feel very dysphoric and feel the need to "switch" genders but ...
I think of gender as more like a compass than a line. We have north and south, but also east and west. And then there's north-north-west, etc., with infinite subdivisions.

OK. Willow Wand, I think I found a problem. If I was correct about emailing Liz to join? Make sure you are putting a capital "L" in the address. I just seen where my last E-mail, I put a lower case. Maybe that's what the problem is? Not sure though.

I loved your story! I can't wait to read more of the book once I get it. I'm bigender so I closely related to Tristan.

Right, then it would be "their clit." Even though it's not grammatically correct in English... you know how in Spanish, there are feminine nouns and masculine nouns? In German there are feminine, masculine, and gender-neutral nouns. And ...
It makes more sense to me now that I consider 'their' instead of 'they'. I just dealt with it by avoiding pronouns all together, lol. Now that I've read this book I feel more comfortable with changing it to make it work.

i don't think it would bother too many people... these are erotica stories and i think some kinky stuff is expected

I think there's such a variety of characters, I found some that I could relate to and I don't consider myself genderqueer. I think you will love it!

Every bigender is different. Even the wikipedia definition of bigender says that it is not a set gender

Bad? There's nothing bad about being multifaceted. All the better, in fact,

Haha, yes. I notice too... when people have a male cat, and then they visit you and talk to your (female) cat, they'll automatically say "he" just out of habit. (And I do the same when I visit people with male cats.) Luckily cats don't get their panties in a twist over it And I default to "they" for babies, again, even though it's not grammatically correct, it's easier than forgetting and offending the parent.

In high-school, I had SUPER short hair, dressed in all black and wore chains connected to my wallet, yes, wallet, NOT purse! I went to the bathroom and one girl said "The boys room is over there!" She totally thought I was a boy though, I still look back on that and smile. I am more feminine now though.

Yeah. That makes sense. Honestly I view gender as having no rules. Whatever makes you happy go for it

I feel more comfortable in menswear. They need to make boxerbriefs for women, I think. I hated dressing like a girl, but I do it now because I like the looks I get from my man.
