About

This blog is meant to be a place where I can think freely about gender, observe how it works and how it’s constructed in everyday life. It’s more about questions than it is about answers; whatever answers I do happen to post are probably tentative and subject to change. It’s also a personal blog inasmuch as gender is a very personal thing. I don’t mean to rant –too much– about my daily life; but I will post whatever I discover when I carry my explorations into the real world.

What about me? I’m a high school university student, I live in Argentina and I identify as trans, queer and maybe genderqueer; but my identity tends to flow.

I’d love to hear from you! You’re always welcome to leave your thoughts in the comments, but you can also email me at genderkid–at–hotmail–dot–com–dot–ar or through this form:

    Hi genderkid!

    I found your blog today and ate it up. I absolutely love it.

    I am also trans and from Argentina, although I don’t live there anymore. It was great to find a blog detailing the experiences of someone back home, albeit significantly younger (I’m 25) and on a different part of the spectrum (I’m genderqueer mtf).

    If you have the time, please drop me a line, I’d love to chat with you about lots of stuff! My email is ascots ***AT*** gmail ((DOT)) com

    Regards

    Ariel

    Hey! Neat! I always hoped someone from Argentina would find me :-) (why I don’t blog in Spanish yet is a whole blogpost… I should write about that soon).

    Anyway, thanks for the comment; I’ll write you immediately! Same goes for Ethan.

    Hey genderkid,
    do you think you could post up this press release for a conference that I am working on, it is a really great, free opportunity (unfortunately pretty far away from you) but I feel like you may have some readers who are close enough to come…

    Reproductive Rights Activist Opportunity
    April 3 – 5, 2009, Hampshire College, Amherst, MA

    Want to explore the intersection of queer identity, reproductive justice, sexuality and gender? On April 3-5 about 1,000 student and community activists will participate in radical workshops including discussions about class and the role of youth in building a movement for economic justice.

    From Abortion Rights to Social Justice:
    Building the Movement to Reproductive Freedom
    Hosted by The Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program and the
    Population and Development Program at Hampshire College
    April 3– 5

    This comprehensive reproductive rights conference features over 50 workshops encompassing alternatives to prison, climate change, queer and transgender rights, reproductive technologies and anti-war activism. Friday workshops will run from 4 to 6 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon.

    Speakers include: Kenyon Farrow, national public education director for Queers for Economic Justice; Miriam Perez, activist and blogger for Feministing.com; Miss Major, organizing director of the Transgender, Gender Variant, Intersex Justice Project.

    Since its formation in 1981, the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program has trained students and young people as reproductive rights activists. The program emphasizes connections between reproductive rights to concerns such as economic justice, healthcare reform, racial equality and civil liberties, as well as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights. More information can be found online at: http://clpp.hampshire.edu.

    The Population and Development Program brings a global perspective to the study and investigation of population and environmental issues and challenges traditional views of over-population and immigration as primary causes of environmental degradation, political instability, and poverty. The program also serves as a monitoring resource for educators, students, journalists, activists, opinion leaders, and policy makers in the U.S. and abroad. http://popdev.hampshire.edu

    Students available for interviews: Akira Cespedes Perez (787 209 8349). Conference speakers are also available for interviews upon request.

    Un saludo.

    Hi – love your blog so far. I started a group blog this past January that’s written by and for high school student feminists; nice to see another young person being active and getting heard. I’m posting a link to your blog on mine. Maybe you could do the same? http://womensglib.wordpress.com

    Thanks,
    Miranda
