“I like that I can just sit on the couch and have a beer while you cook and it doesn’t have to have any deeper meaning than that. I guess I take it for granted that you don’t read anything more into that, like a lot of girls would.”

For as long as I can remember I’ve known that I was interested in non-normative expressions of gender, bored by what “masculinity” means culturally and what it is supposed to look like visually.

Though the dictionary has added cisgender, and Facebook has expanded their options for choosing gender, some people don’t think using “cisgender” is cohesive to getting people to better understand differing sexualities.
