hi! my name is Jordan, I'm 19 years old, and I'm agender!
whatever the reason may be you wound up reading this journal, I want you to know my end goal in this is to present you with as much information as possible so you have the opportunity to be respectful and treat others well. I've come across so many situations where I was an audience member to someone using some form of transphobic speech - whether or not they knew it. each and every one of those times I had to fight the urge to approach them about it, but rarely am I faced with a situation like this where I'm able to privately speak to this person in an appropriate learning environment. even if I were to pull them aside, my approaching them could simply come off as me talking down to them or something to that effect
What about me!?Sitting in health class listening to the teacher babble on about safe sex.
Then she asks:
"What is gender?"
Muscles tensing and twitching
I hold on to my biceps as the only masculine thing I have in a class of girls
I feel alone
I don't want to be here
Why do people do this?
Can't I feel the same as everyone else?
Will going to a men's health class help?
No, of course not!
I'll feel even worse.
What the hell is wrong with me...!?
