A really good letter/article on what it means to identify as genderqueer. I identify as male but I think it is important to allow people to not be squished into that dichotomy if they don't want to be. This article talks about real world ways of doing that.

edit: If anyone is interested, you just need google "coming out genderqueer: an open letter." The article itself is not inappropriate, it was the ads on the site. That's my bad. I surf with a pretty robust ad-blocker so they didn't show up for me.

Estatic when he stands defiant,

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
