Curious. I do life in a very feminine manner but still fight being labeled female. I have fought hard for a male label and will have to fight harder if I choose a neutral label. But looking at myself self in the mirror I see a femme. Does cringing every time I hear people address me as female mean…
Of course I cannot answer this question for yourself but as someone who cares deeply about you, I would urge you to ask these questions. Introspection is essential to life. Asking these questions and finding the answers is a life long endeavor. Who we are today is not necessarily who we were ten years ago and may not be who we are ten years from now.
As far as gynophobia goes, I’ve asked myself fairly often in recent times if I grew up and associated the “female roll” as a bad thing and my enemy because I never felt female and I didn’t want to be construed as such. I’ve joked relentlessly about “women’s place” and all sorts of awful things as a teen and even young adult. It sickens me because I’ve always been gender nonconforming and believed in rights for all people regardless of gender but since society placed me in a box that wasn’t mine, I fought against it in a stupid and harmful way. Me trying to prove myself as not-female to other people in that way just made me look like an ass. They still called me a girl. It accomplished nothing.
So for myself, I’ve admitted that in my past I joked crudely about women just to get away from the label. I didn’t want it imprinted onto my image. It was the wrong thing to do and I’ve definitely come around. Feminism is actually a good and necessary thing. I don’t see being a female as a threat to me. I am still not female but I fully respect those who are.
