I want to be half boy, half girl
I like certain parts, and not others
I like my rough boys frame,
I hate my boyish scraggly arms,
I hate the way my hair falls into a part if I let it grow just a touch too long,
I hate the way my breasts hang heavy against my chest
But I love the way my waist curves in to part my womanly chest from my tight little boyish hips
I love the way my calves are curvy, and that I have 'girlish' legs
I hate the way my muscles refuse to grow, no matter how hard I work out
I like that I can be taken, as both a girl, and a boy,
And either way, I’m assumed to like girls
I'm either a straight boy, or a very gay girl
And yet it frustrates me when they assume I am one or the other, and I have no in between
Can I not be a girl down below and a boy up top, is that idea so hard to comprehend?
I'm not a boy, but I'm not a girl either,
I suppose I lay somewhere in the middle.
check it out and let me know what you think

Hmm... I think that would be Third Gender you're thinking you are. Maybe Androgynus, I can't quite tell just by one short story. Nice work though. ;)

wow. so far i think this is the only thing i can honestly relate to. Here lately though, hiding the fact that i am genderqueer has been hard. i want to find that balance in between and this piece of writing describes it.
it can be very confusing when you try to explain it. very nice work

i agree.. it is really confusing to explain :(:( I'm not out fully as genderqueer.. however I dress as 'boy' most days with the occasional occurrence as 'girl:the gender role I'm supposed to play'

I'd love to be able to switch and blend the sexes so I can be whatever I feel like being on any given day.

I like that my face is androgynous and that I have small breasts because they're easy to hide.

I loved this piece by the way.

This is online and not in real life but I am a girl and people think I am a guys sometimes. I have even been told I write like a guy. I also had a friend told me when I came out to her that she knew I was not straight because of the way I walked.

wow. that reeks.... I'm not out as genderqueer yet...only as lesbian
my sis is bi... and she's petrified of 'trannies' and was blunt enough to ask me if i was a boy and shit... she's gonna be a big challenge for me... she refused to buy me boys/mens clothes for me for christmas (even though i can't remember the last time i wore girls clothes on a regular enough occasion to have a casual sweater....i dress girl on occasion when i feel like it.) .. and got me this chick sweater..... I swear its like hitting a brick wall over and over and over again.. I'm not sure how she'll take it... if i tell her
anyways... enough of my rant...

It's okay. It's good knowing you're not alone you know? I've tried to come out to my brother just about being lesbian and he laughs at me and says "no you're not" and that's the end of things. Mom and dad are all like really religous so it's really hard to come out to them.

At least the girl I have is pre-op Transexual, so it's easy to be gay out in the open and hide it at the same time. It wasn't so easy with my first girlfriend. My mom basically did whatever she could to sabotage that relationship. :/

You'll get through it some how. We all do.

yeah, my mom wasn't too thrilled over my ex-girlfriend... outright asked me to date one of my sisters friends instead. kinda put a strain on the relationship.

yeah, i'll get through it.. it just sucks that we have to.

I don't hate my parents, I'm just convinced that there is nothing I can do to make them accept me as I am. They will always hate that part of me that loves who I love. For the last 2 years I did nothing but lie to them, so they don't believe me as far as they can throw me. It wasn't out of spite, it was out of fear. So now I don't talk to them at all and almost pretend that I don't have a family. I'm lucky that my girlfriend's takes me in as one of their own.

that's awesome that you have been taken in by her family :)

it sucks about not being close with your own family though... I'm not close with mine either. I hope someday they realize what a mistake they've made by not accepting you :)

This is wonderful. I love people who fit the middle the birls and the goys, I guess you'd say. Androgynous and gender confused people are just so wonderful. I really think, if you look at it right, that living in the middle is in some ways the best. You can have your football and your kittens. I saw once, on a special on Logo, a store in New York, I think, that sold clothes catered to gender queers. That's what the show called them, people who don't belong to either gender class, gender queer. They had boy jeans that were tailored to fit more girlish hips and girl jeans for flat boy butts. Things like that, I wish more places did that.

Oh, yes, gender is such a big problem when you live in a world like this and you don't fit into any category. Everything should be like suomi language! In suomi there are no differences in gender , no he/she/it, no er/sie/es, no el/ella.The point is one has to learn to deal with it and put all things together so it makes sense and change the ones that can be altered in order to be more oneself. Have you ever seen this movie called Ma vie en rose? Great film, watch if you can, the word "garconfille" makes a great sense.
Greets from a trans-boy.
