this ain't livin': Yes, Genderqueer People Have A Stake In Gender Politics

The resistance to the inclusion of nonbinary people is in fact an illustration of precisely why we do belong, because these are conversations that needed to be expanded. These issues affect us personally, not abstractly. We are directly harmed by a lot of the social attitudes that affect binary people of both genders, in addition to the prejudices aimed at nonbinary people and other gender-variant folks. We belong in this conversation. This is not a case of ‘but what about the people who are not actually affected by this problem but seem to think they should dominate the conversation or position themselves as authorities?’
