Hey, sounds like you’re having issues with other people’s mindless steryotypes.
Gender is honestly just a concept in itself. A way of expression or identity. And it sounds like you aren’t around the most open minded people.
Maybe this will help but, latley in the world men, for example, are alot more comfortable in being who they are. Latley I have seen alot of guys wearing dresses, skirts, beautiful makeup and adorable outfits!! Ofc, most of the are the gen z kids on tiktok. Seeing so many guys popping up online comfortable in whatever they want to wear, I have hope that gender roles aren’t such an issue on society for the future. So I beleive for not much longer we will have to deal with that sort of stuff. But… That will be a bit of a wait. For now everyone is doing this in the safety of their bedrooms, that’s enough to encourage something in society though.
I get the wish to have something like this. Though mainly I feel the only thing keeping me back is my stupid fucking voice. I hate talking sometimes, because most of the time they assume… ugh. don’t even get me started. But even so, I love expressing myself. If only it sounded male.
Sometimes I feel this way, though, being an nb masc I keep my pronouns male because I know to society well, non-binary folk are just a joke, sadly… It would be nice for a body to not be defined as a certain gender.
To me, gender is just represented as Masc, fem, both, neither, or in between. But then again there’s such a huge study into gender that I don’t know enough to explain it completley. Body parts such as boobs or private pieces don’t have anything to do with gender either. It’s just an expression. Sorry, Idk, you can already tell now that I’m getting confused. It’s because it’s so complicated. There are vtubers for example that use female avatars but still have male voice, and his veiwers still see him as a sexy male. Not as a guy with a chest that looks like a hot girl, just a beautiful man. Which he is no doubt bout that, heh. It just goes to show that gender essentially is so complicated it might not even be real? It’s just SOOOOO confusing!!
I don’t blame you for being frustrated by this! It’s something alot of us are all trying to understand in ourselves. And sometimes we don’t have an answer. Sometimes the answer is beyond our comprehending. It’s a feeling afterall, and most feelings are hard to put into words.
In the end, I’d say just go for it. Do what makes you the happiest in your best moment. Express yourself without limits, just be you, because that’s all that matters
I’ll leave you off on this song animation. This artist expresses gender in a way one wouldn’t imagine, and it truly depicts the concept of what it could be in another perspective. On the last few seconds of the video, you’ll see various icons of animals mixed together, that represents the expression of self- or our gender.
