Gender of the Day!

Postby Mo » Fri Aug 15, 2014 3:06 pm

Have any of y'all seen the Gender of the Day blog? It's fun gender-humor tumblr that runs gender-submissions from trans folks. There's a lot of content and I find it a little hit-and-miss, but there's something deeply satisfying for me, as a person whose gender is often a bit hard to pin down, to see genders such as: Lightning-Bolt Manicure, Iridescent Crystal, Ammonite Fossil, and (perhaps my favorite) We Just Don't Know.

If I were going to submit one, I'd say my gender is Pusheenicorn, and in fact I have said that when I couldn't think of a better self-descriptor.

Anyone else find this sort of playful approach to gender-labeling fun or helpful?

The silly person in me wants a lot of what's there (Carrot with a Face and Extremely Long Egg were faves), but I actually felt pretty moved and inspired by the "Person Made of Galaxies" one: http://genderoftheday.tumblr.com/image/98161877144

(Of course, we're all made of galaxies, really, especially when it comes to this stuff, but that's likely why I liked it so much.)
