Text Articles


Transvestite. Crossdresser. Transgenderist. Transsexual Androgene. Male Lesbian. Gender dysphoric. Berdache. These words and others are some of the terminology used today to describe parts of your culture. Many articles have been written to lambaste any attempt to sub divide us by our behaviors. Personally, I think this movement has less to do with the anger at being categorized and more to do with being inaccurately categorized.

Why are our labels so inept? Why are they so obdurate? Why are they so hard to wear? Why do they fail us? Why? Because they are boring! Our terminology is dry, technical, academic historical, and no longer practical in the New Wave culture. We need new terminology that really describes us as we are now. Titles that are on target, politically correct, on the cutting edge, and most importantly fun! We need a movement of the masses to begin this revolution. If I may (and who the hell is going to stop me), let me begin by offering some suggestions for relevant terminology.
