What is your gender? Man, woman, boy, girl, femme, bear, whatever?
Mine is nerd. By that I mean, everything I’ve ever done that was nerdy fit me in a way that is beyond masculine or feminine. I do not feel male or female. My body doesn’t fit my gender, nor is there a body for my gender.
“Are you a girl?” Yes, well maybe, but no, wait, that’s not really it…
“Are you a boy?” No, it’s not it either, it’s just that…
“Well, what are you?” I don’t know, I’m just my nerdy self.
Gender is tied in closely with sexuality, and mine is no different. I am almost exclusively attracted to other nerds. I am a homo-nerd, nerd-queer.
Do not expect a nerd to look or act a particular way. This often leads people to confuse us with geeks and dorks. What is the difference? Nerd? Geek? or Dork?
So tell me: what is your gender?
