This. (via Riley J. Dennis on Twitter)

[Image: A screenshot of a tweet by user RileyJayDennis. The text reads: "if you can identify as a woman, I can identify as a [insert object/animal/etc here]“

is just the anti-trans version of

“if men can marry men, then I can marry a [insert object/animal/etc here]”

ur anti-trans/anti-gay arguments are outdated, boring, illogical, and ridiculous]

I may not be recognized as non-binary in every situation, but gender is different everywhere, and which identities are accepted will vary from place to place and time to time. By creating spaces where we do recognize non-binary people, we can help them find their way into spaces that haven’t traditionally acknowledged them. And even if nobody else thought of me as non-binary, I still would be, because what matters is how I think of myself. We get to define our own gender, and our definitions are not up for debate.

“What’s It Like Being Blind and Gay?”

Beautiful video.

I’ve been out as genderqueer since the late 2000s and LGBTQ history is one of my Special Interests (I’m autistic), but didn’t know ‘genderqueer’ was coined in the 90s. But it makes sense as bisexuality has been inclusive of nonbinary folk since at least the early 90s (read the bisexual manifesto published in 1990) and we’ve always been close to and had a lot of overlap with the trans community.
