The charm of the gender binary #2: Communication

Part 1 here. Versione in italiano qui. (Before someone gets steamed up, this series of post, as I hope you've already understood, is highly ironic and humorous and it refers to the feminine and masculine stereotypes which are worst in my opinion.

The charm of the gender binary #1: Personality and aptitudes

Versione in italiano qui. I think by now everyone's got that I'm a genderqueer, that is one who doesn't fit into the two traditional categories of the binary gender: man or woman.

(Very) angry thoughts about a Trump supporter

Italian translation¬†here. About a Trump supporter that you wouldn't expect, by the way. And at first I thought I was going to be polite, because you know, civilized exchange of opinions and so on, all beautiful things which I like as well, but...
