Infinite Gender

Gender, for me, is not linear or controlled, it is expansive and explosive, it flows like water through cracks and it tears apart the rigid rules within which we constrain ourselves. It is human nature to classify things, to separate into boxes, to divide and conquer. This is what we have done to gender. With the growing trans activist movement, and increasing awareness of the binary system in which we have classified gender, people are slowly starting to become more aware that gender does not have to be restricted, or controlled.

Experiences on Low Dose Testosterone

It’s good to be back!

I haven’t written in this blog for quite a long time – 9 months to be exact.

I have a well-paid job, I am happy in my personal life and I want to keep that side of my life private now. Continue reading
