BoldlyGo is my repository of thought bits about gender, sexuality, disability, class, and whatever else I decide to talk about mixed with comparisons to nerdy things since… well, I am a nerd. I’ll do my best to put trigger warnings where needed. Feel free to comment, participate, and tell me your thoughts (but fyi, these are the rules). While I am open to criticisms, this is primarily a space to express my thoughts. It’s main purpose is not to educate or provide as a model for anything. It’s just my space. Pure and simple.
To give some context for who I am: I’m non-binary and agender and go by the pronoun “they”. I’m disabled (hidden and non-hidden disabilities) and one of my disabilities includes the lack of production of both testosterone and oestrogen. I’m still ambivalent at the moment about whether I can class myself as “intersex” because of that. What’s important to communicate is that I feel I have a different experience than most people do with my body within the contexts of “sex”. I’m also somewhere on the autistic spectrum.
I’m queer, mostly non-monogamous and somewhat “demisexual” although again, feeling ambivalent about that term as well. I’m a UK immigrant, American by birth and grew up working class in the South and I come from a working class family. I have some very wealthy relatives but I didn’t grow up around them and they’re not involved in my life. I’m technically part indigenous, but I don’t know my tribe because the records have been burned. Because I didn’t grow up within my tribe or with any understanding of myself as an indigenous person, I consider myself white.
If there’s anything else here that I think or anyone else thinks is relevant, I’ll be sure to add it later.
