I was thinking about people who are bi-gendered... and actually i wondered if this is a 'thing' and if there are many people who feel this.
I don't mean bi-gender-typed people, who identify with both the masculine and feminine but feel right in thier bodies. - mmm an example of this might be someone who might wear both male and female typed clothes or engage in both male and female typed activities.
I have a friend who says she wishes she was a boy sometimes. She means in a physical sense. Though, she does not feel unhappy and can identify with her female body so would not want to/doesnt feel the need to become male.
I wonder if she could be considered bi-gendered. ??
I was comparing this to the sexuality spectrum and wondered if being Trans (where you know you have to change) could be compared to people being almost totally gay ie. you have no choice in the matter.
I have a couple of bi female friends who have confessed they have more or less looked out more for men because it would just be easier (one of my friends parents are pretty old fashioned).
IF you are totally gay though really the only choices you have are to be with those of the same sex or nothing (which may make you miserable)
hmm.. i might be over complicating things here actually.
Do you think a large % of people do think about wanting to be the gender they are not but are happy enough not to actually have to do anything about it?
oh.. my friend said when she was growing up she wanted to be a boy but now she seems to be ok with being a girl but has confessed perhaps if she had been offered when younger she might have had a sex change. Though, i can feel her soul/essence is male (if that makes any sense!?) ...
These thoughts are not fully formed btw.. so sorry..
Re: bolded bit - I don't know about a large number of people, but...
without going into waaay personal detail (maybe laterz, it's cold in here for the fingers typing)....
*I'm* kinda gender ambivalent... which is to say - I act like a guy (mostly) cos this is a bloke body I'm in... I don't hate my body, it's fairly serviceable and has carried me through many awesome adventures - so I'm strongly disinclined to majorly modify it.... aaand I've looked briefly at the transformative options out there and none of them include- that awesome female (multi)orgasm (I=jealous!), ability to bear kids etc.
I'm not wanting cast any aspersions on anyone who HAS gone thro' or wants to go thro' trans... respect to those folks... I'm just talking about how I feel about me, my body, personally...
So what this adds up to is: chick-me gets a bit of expression with the drag act thing once in a while, or if I have a gf who thinks it's hott... and I guess that'll do... (in the absence of magic)
I'd've been cool being born a chick I'm sure...
I tend to get on well with girls-who-feel-like-they-should've-been-a-guy... Some of my fave peeps are like that!
