“Discuss your relationship with the term transgender” 30-Week Genderqueer Challenge part 12

This post is part of my participation in the 30-day genderqueer challenge, which I have modified to a weekly exercise.

Today’s prompt: Discuss your relationship with the term transgender

I absolutely identify as transgender. My gender is not the one that my doctor/parents guessed I would have when I was born, and I was not raised in a culture that recognizes any non-binary genders in a way that defies the trans/cis binary.

I do mostly just use the word ‘trans’ rather ‘transgender’ when talking about myself, but I for sure just mean it as a short-hand for transgender, so this is not an important distinction.

And that’s really all I have to say about that. I don’t have a complex relationship with the word transgender. How unlike me!
