I wanna make a post about being transxenine, because as much as I wanna use the word more, I don't really have anything to point to right now that explains what I mean when I say that. Which I'm kinda brainstorming right now, but for me personally I think major points are:
- non-human concepts as the best way to describe my gender; more personally it also includes the ways my non-/alterhuman identities intersect with my gender
- presenting in otherworldly, alien, hard-to-read, and totally off-binary ways; presenting to make someone confused about my looks (or mythical creature/cryptid status) as a whole before even considering a gender
- an emphasis on gender feelings that are detached from or not described by the gender binary (e.g. xenogenders, aporagenders, etc)
- personally i feel like it describes the relationship i have to the transfem/transmasc binary (and even transneutral) in that I am alienated from these concepts in both my gender feelings and in being intersex and I don't feel they apply.
- Just a very strong feeling of embracing, embodying, and finding empowerment in reclaiming otherness, feelings of dehumanization, strangeness, confusion, and alienation.
- a transition goal that takes me away from comfortable concepts of binary/cis/dyadic appearance expectations
- presentation goals that involve embodying concepts, subcultures, ideas (e.g. canine, goth, retro future, space, plenty more) rather than specifically aiming to look masculine or feminine
I might have more thoughts later, but this is what I got for now.
