Re: [CHAT] Gender and Sexuality!?

@roseisnotaplant I would think you're right, when ideas are around for a long time it can be pretty hard to shake them

Hellooo @DruidChild Smiley Very Happy

 

I like that line - so like gender is your relationship with yourself and sexuality is your relationship with other people? Kind of?

Re: [CHAT] Gender and Sexuality!?

To me sexuality is one's preference of sexual attraction or romantic attraction depending on the person, and gender identity is the way that one identifies on the spectrum of gender ranging from the binaries male to female. I could go on about the whole thing that gender is really just a social construct but I won't Smiley Very Happy both can fluid and are personal. A person can choose to identify with labels or can just live as they want to and go with the flow, both are perfectly fine

Re: [CHAT] Gender and Sexuality!?

I really like how you make the point that some people like labels and others don't @spicyunicorn. I think that's important. Also I very much agree with the idea that gender is a social construct, I think in some ways it's a personal construct as well though? To an extent?

Hi @spicyunicorn, welcome (and I love your username)!

 

That is a damn great definition! I like that you've mentioned romantic attraction, I feel that a lot of people think that romantic/sexual attraction are one in the same and I don't agree with that. What do you think about it?

Awesome, next question;

 

How important is it to you to find a sexuality/gender label that suits you?
