I noticed you didnt have Noah/Noa on your unisex names list, so I thought I'd point it out to you!by Anonymous
I'm so glad I just found your blog. I'm doing an art project and plan to write/illustrate a children's book based on a fairy tale, and to include characters of a whole variety of genders, and I was panicking because I'll be talking about royalty and such because it's a fairy tale and so I need alternative terms than prince/princess and king/queen etc, as well as pronouns that will be easy for very young children to grasp/pronounce! (some like xe/xir would be hard for a 5 year old to read)
I would suggest Monarch, Ruler or Quing for King/Queen and Prin, Princet/Princette, Princev, Princen, Princus or Heir for Prince/Princess. I don’t really know much about children, so hopefully those are okay for the age range you’re aiming at.
(There are more for King/Queen and Prince/Princess, and lots of alternatives for other titles, at the link, and good luck with your art project!)
hey! im doing a presentation for my feminism club and im trying to come up with good definitions of both gender and sexuality. and should i use both genderqueer and nonbinary to describe gender orientations, not just one since they aren't interchangeable? thank you@by jaegerette
There’s an overlap, but they are different, so if you have space, it would probably be a good idea to mention both. :)
It’s always nice to hear about trans-positive feminism!
hey this site i think was really helpful and informative and really helped me in finding what i think my gender identity is. thank you!by Anonymous
Great! Thanks for the message, anon!
Can I ask why Princex is POC exclusive? I hope this doesn't sound rude, I'd just like to know. ^^'by Anonymous
That’s not rude, anon, it’s a polite question. (I did get a rude anon question about this, which I deleted. Not here to listen to other white people cry about not being allowed one little thing. Sheesh.)
Basically, unlike the other invented neutral/queer words on the Gender Queeries list, princex wasn’t invented to be a general-use word, it was invented by a POC tumblr user to describe a fictional/historical POC character, whose gender was genderqueer/non-binary in line with the genderqueer/non-binary genders in various traditional cultures.
They received a lot of harrassment in trying to keep the word’s meaning as they intended, so I don’t want to ask them a bunch more questions, or send followers to bug them with a bunch more questions, so I’ve left it as POC exclusive, but it’s probably exclusive to certain genders in certain cultures.
TL:DNR version: it was invented by POC, for POC, because gender is often cultural.
What's demiboy/demigirl?by Anonymous
Demiboy: Someone who feels partly a boy, and partly something else, without defining that other part.
Demigirl: Someone who feels partly a girl, and partly something else, without defining that other part.
hello! i'm figuring out my gender identity, and i'm having difficulty grasping it. i'm a dfab, and i feel like i'm partly a girl and partly not a girl–agender-ish, but not really agender. would that make me a demigirl? right now i consider myself a demigirl but i'd want someone else's perspective on this, if it's alright! i'm new to all this gender stuff uou thank you!by Anonymous
Hi anon! ‘Partly a girl, partly not a girl but something not really defined’ is the basic definition of demigirl, so it’s a good word to use.
Labels are there for your benefit, so if a word feels right and explains what you want it to explain, its the right word. :) We’re all new to gender stuff at one time, good luck figuring your gender identity out.
hey i just learned about the terms demiboy/demigirl and i think demigirl fits me pretty well but im not sure because im biologically a woman so there might be asswankers who try to belittle what i define as (im a pansexual so ive experienced it before and its no fun at all) what do i doby Anonymous
There’ll be asswankers (great word, btw) no matter what, especially if you’re trans. If demigirl fits you best, fuck the haters. They aren’t you, and labels are for your benefit.
hi! i'm a biological female and i have been questioning my gender for a little while now and i'm confused.. some days i feel feminine; i want to wear a dress and do girly things, but then other days i just want to put on a binder, wear baggy clothes, and cut my hair off so I can live the day as a guy. i'm not sure if this would be considered trans* or genderqueer of any sort but that is why i come to you for your opinion and maybe advice or something i could look into. thanks for your time~by Anonymous
If you feel like a boy some days and a girl other days, it sounds like you might be genderfluid. I can’t really tell you your gender, but it might be helpful for you to look up genderfluid, to get a feel for it.
If it’s just presentation and you’re not really sure how you feel, that’s fine! Lots of non-genderfluid people have boy-looking days and girl-looking days. Gender is a journey, sometimes it can take a while to define yourself. How do you feel in yourself? How does being seen as a boy or a girl make you feel?
