Non-Binary Gender Terms Across Languages
Although there are many English-language resources and glossaries about transgender, genderqueer, and non-binary terms, there are not as many in other languages. I have begun a few pages at the Non-Binary Wiki, which anyone can edit, to list terms and their meanings in a few languages:
More will be added - these were created as just a start to this project and anyone is welcome to create further language pages or edit the ones that already exist to add new terms, citations of sources, or correct any errors. I am focusing on collecting terms related to non-binary gender identity, although general gender and sex terms can also be added to these glossaries. I am very excited about this project!
Submit to THEM
I’ve started a trans* lit journal. Spread the word. Submit if applicable. Be aware of THEM’s existence.
From the About Page:
“THEM is a body of writers, of writing that does not conform.
Whether we lie outside, between, reject, or move freely between gender identities, our bodies are a site of disruption, confusion, and instability for those around us.
THEM is disassembly.
Like gender, writing has failed us. And yet we contain it. Taking these objects up into our hands, our mouths—which are somehow and mysteriously ours—we fashion ourselves in THEM.
This is a writing unashamed to speak “I”, to address “you”, to hold an “us.” We have been constructed as many, so we no longer look for a ground to call home; we come from below and accept. We admit we were never singular.
We are THEM.”
Attention All Queer-Identified College Students
I am a second-year student at Ohio State University. For one of my classes, I am conducting a survey and writing a paper to analyze the experiences of queer-identified college students. I seek to discover if there is a correlation between how “out” a student is about their identity and how accepting their peers are of that identity, and their cumulative GPA.
Neither the survey or paper will be published. The only people who will ever see it are me and my professor.
So, please, fill it out, reblog it, and share it with all your queer friends.
For my trans* followers (or those interested in learning about trans* issues):
I have a trans* resource page on my personal blog where you can find tons of pages worth of educational resources (articles, videos, free books, and more), news, and discussions regarding trans* communities.
The resource has been written primarily to assist trans people who experience domestic abuse. There is information as well as links to UK resources.

Today’s a pretty big day for queer rights, seeing as marriage equality is going down in the Supreme Court. However I was pretty disheartened by the HRC’s ‘go red’ campaign on Facebook. Why, I thought to myself, couldn’t they use this amazing influence they have to start an internet movement that would actually help those of us still struggling for basic rights? Such as the right to be legally recognized as a person. To at least have our basic existence validated.
Changing your profile pic to a red HRC flag takes about just as much effort as signing this petition, but the difference between the two is this petition could actually have an enormous and meaningful impact on the lives of non-binary people. We need to reach 100,000 signatures in order to get a response from the White House and it only takes a few seconds to sign and reblog! And all you need to sign is an email.
So please, in celebration of marriage equality, and in support of all queer people, sign and spread this petition! We still need 75,000 signatures and have less than a week. Please, please do all you can to spread this. As a non-binary person, this would mean the world to me, and to many others. We can’t do it without you. Thank you!
Don’t separate your class by gender or sex, it can make trans* students very uncomfortable and it completely writes off individuals that do not identify in the gender binary. You can’t tell how someone identifies from how they look, and their experiences could differ wildly from your own.
I WANT A MILLION MASSIVE POSTERS OF THIS
Legal documents in the United States only recognize “male” and “female” as genders, leaving anyone who does not identify as one of these two genders with no option. Australia and New Zealand both allow an X in place of an M or an F on passports for this purpose, and the UK recognizes ‘Mx’ (pronounced “Mix”) as a gender-neutral title.
This petition asks the Obama administration to legally recognize genders outside of the male-female binary, and provide an option for these genders on all legal documents and records.
It’s halfway through march AND THIS STILL NEEDS 85,000 SIGNATURES
If you guys all take 5 minutes to sign & signal boost this petition, it will be done in no time.
