Everyone's gender is different.

"conform to certain societal expectations, or live at odds with your body" is a non sequiter.

The inside doesn't have to match the outside.

Gender-queerness isn't restricted to those with a birth defect.


I called this community "sapiogender" as a reaction against what I saw as essentialism in the queer and trans community. I don't feel that brain intersexism or hormonal variance gives people the license to reemploy sexist terminology and oppressive gender roles. Ultimately, I'd like it if there were less focus on notions of "male" and "female" and more focus on people-as-minds.

Put another way: as "sapiosexual" is affiliation with intelligent bodies, sapiogendered is affiliation with intelligent gender roles.

Bring it. =)
