I think gender-fluid is a very accurate description of me. I like the term. It doesn’t imply sides, which necessitates stating where you are in relation to those sides. It doesn’t imply that I used to live somewhere else, but then journeyed here and set down roots. Fluid implies stuff that it’d be difficult, if not impossible, to entirely separate out into the individual elements. It implies a potential for freedom of movement in all different directions. It makes for an interesting metaphor: gender, much like a fluid, will take the shape of it’s container unless other forces are involved. We are not the containers – our environment is.
