I feel I should introduce myself, to provide some context around upcoming posts.
First of all, I’m a Latin American living in Latin America. The beauty of the blogosphere is that I can live over here, and you can live way over there, but we can still connect through our words.
I’m still in high school and living with my parents. So, I have no idea whether my gender doubts are about identity or about raging hormones (or maybe hormones are a part of identity? Tough question).
I’ve been questioning my gender, on and off, for two years; I just didn’t think too much about the matter because I was discovering my queer sexuality at the same time. Plus, it was plain scary.
But I can’t ignore my gender identity anymore. For months I’ve been combing the internet for news articles, academic papers, websites, movies, whatever, on the subject.
Then I found a blog on gender by a genderqueer person. And you know how it is: from the blogroll you find a related blog, and the people who comments also have interesting blogs, and soon there’s no going back.
It makes you want your own blog to participate in the debate.
