gender bender

Okay, I just had a VERY LONG discusion with agirl about why I like to wear makeup…

I told her it WASNT a gay thing, I wear it becasue I like it…which brought up the topic of gender, and I told her that gender DOES NOT determain sexual prefrence, or even that it determines what sex you are…

Gender is between your eays and sex is between your legs…And they DO NOT go hand in hand.

I know some VERY “femine” men that are 100% straight and some masc. females that are 100% straight…

GENDER is NOT what sex you are or which sex you like…

I think of myself as genderqueer or genderfluid.

I’m a boy that wears makeup, girls clothes, but im am not a drag queen, of do I want to be a girl…this is just WHO I AM…

Gender is a social standing….with out society there wouldn’t be gender.

Gender is not a box you can check, there is no black and white area when it comes to it. its all gray. It’s a spectrum baside on everyone.

your thoughts?

I leave you with the lovely xXxMichealJamesXxX

I say, you do what makes you happy. How many men (actors, stage, etc) wear makeup that no one ever notices! I've known plenty of guys to wear makeup, usually nail polish, or eyeliner, but come on, it's not that uncommon anymore!

I think that people can't get over those lines they think define one as "straight" or "gay" etc. They don't realize that the definitions are not what they used to be!

I think you should check out FilmArtGender.com's latest film project... and maybe be in it? There are distance options!

PS - I surfed in from a "genderqueer" google alert.

Most boys look better in makeup than I do, it's disheartening ;-)

People are just ignorant and such dumbasses should be ignored.

Kudos to you for sticking to your guns and being who you are.
