Hey there tumblr, this is godtie. For the past year or so I’ve been struggling with my identity, not only with gender but with sexuality too. I met some AMAZING people a few months ago who are basically all really queer and accepting of literally everything, and they’ve helped, and are still helping me, figure out who I am.
I’ve been hesitant to tell Tumblr. Not because I don’t think I’ll feel accepted, but because I was so unsure about whether I was or not. And hey guess what? I’m still not completely and absolutely sure! But after testing it out, mainly coming to terms with possibly being bigendered, it feels a lot more right. The same when I realized I was bisexual, it took a little while for me to get used to knowing it’s okay to look at girls as well as guys.
Though I’m sure most of you know what being bigendered means, for those who don’t, have the wikipedia definition:
Bigender, bi-gender or bi+gender describes a tendency to move between feminine and masculine gender-typed behaviour depending on context.
Now I bet some of you are wondering about what pronouns I would like you to use in the event of talking to me or speaking about me. And in all honesty? I’m fine with whatever! I’m fine with he, she, they, or any other agendered pronouns of some sort! The big thing for me is that when, in person, I’m more obviously dressed more like a guy or just acting more like one, I want to be called he. When looking and/or acting more like a girl, I want to be called she. Can’t really tell the difference? Use anything.
And names! I’m perfectly fine with you guys calling me godtie. My birth name is Anna, but you can also use Alex or Ax (my friends like this one a lot). Even A would be fine! Whatever you’re comfortable with.
And wanna know a little something else? I’m still not completely sure, like I said before! I’m still young and figuring out who I am, and so all this could very well change! Maybe in months, maybe in years! But right now, I just wanted to tell you guys this so you can know me better.
Thanks for reading! It means a lot. <3
