Quotes[edit | edit source]

"I am bigender and I align both with masculinity and femininity. Much of my feels abt masculinity comes from my father. I learned about self-defense, how to survive on nothing, how not to betray friends even under intense pressure. I use his lessons daily."[3]

"For me personally, English has been liberating. In my other languages, gender distinctions are much more massively embedded. [...] English afforded me opportunities to avoid binary gender marking, or to play with it in various ways."[4]
