I’ve decided that I am going to call myself ‘Gender Questing” and start using the male changing rooms, saunas and bathrooms. I shall state that I identify as ‘male’ in spite of having all the necessary female parts required to conceive and carry a biological off spring and be it’s only food source for the first year of its life. My rights would be protected to enter the male bastion of private sanctuary as one of their brethren members.
I would just be lacking any of the hormonal or physical accouterments that are normally associated with Male identity; like testosterone, gonads, penis, body or facial hair, and lack of mammary development. Or muscles. I don’t really have those either. But that doesn’t matter at all since as long as I “Identify” myself as “male”, my word for is simply has to be respected and legally upheld.
I am allowed to sit splay legged naked with my fellow males in a sauna or whirlpool. I am allowed to covetously compare their danglie bits while pretending to glance across the room. It is my right as a female who self identifies as a Male to be allowed to parade myself amongst the other card carrying members of my gender and dare them to look at me askance or make me feel awkward or uncomfortable for being there. It is my right to be respected for the man, I believe myself to be.
I wore jeans, work boots and a plaid shirt to the gym and drove there in a jeep. My hair is cut short and I am wearing basketball shorts and a t-shirt to work out in. I am not wearing Lululemon or sketchers. It should be obvious that I am Gender Questing and my inclusion in the Male changing room should be fully supported, though not be advertised or discussed with others, as it would be an infringement on my personal rights!
I have no idea why my naked presence would upset or bother other men, who like me are there to work out and stay healthy. Are they bothered by how I look? I look perfectly normal for a Male who is Gender Questing. THIS is what a man looks like in MY mind and I should not have to change my body to conform to their idea of what a man SHOULD look like.
All of the uneducated people who complain about my presence need to re-evaluate what it means to be male. I should not be forced to undress or shower among women because that would make me uncomfortable. I feel much more relaxed and at ease amongst other men, who have all the parts and bits that I am used to not seeing, when I look at myself naked. Being around women is just a cruel reminder of everything I don’t have.
So for all of you people who stand in judgement of a fully biological female with all of the physical parts, traits and characteristics associated with that gender; you simply do not know how I gender self identity and nor are you allowed to legally ask me to define it as that would be discriminatory. My presence in the Men’s change room should be held in evidentiary proof that I am Gender questing and affiliate with being a Man.
Of course, I also plan on bringing my very young daughters into the mens changing room as well as they ALSO identify as being boys just like me. I am sure their naked pre-pubescent presence will not bother a single man, adult, teen or otherwise, there, since after all, we men are all the exact same. Just because society has labelled them as ‘girls’ because of their physical and hormonal traits, does not mean that they are. They should be allowed to be around other men in the course of daily activities, so they know they are normal and valued members of the male community.
I don’t see how my desire to use a male changing room and facilities, should concern anyone, especially the other men I would be around who are also sharing the facility with me. The Gender discrimination policy is there to protect my rights to be included in the changing room which I identify with and that most assuredly is the one where I can view naked men who have all the parts I was not born with.
