ansemaru: (ALL HAIL OWLZAWA)
  Sometimes, I worry that as a man who has a binary gender identity, I have no right to speak in queer spaces! Obviously being a guy without any shades of genderqueeritude doesn't make me not queer, but I also feel like with the state of rhetoric in the community being what it is, my input is unneeded and probably wrong.

I don't normally like to talk about this, especially not in the "let me explain all of my labels and oppressions to you" sense, but I guess I want to put thoughts out. I'm not sure that as an FTM guy who is functionally bisexual I actually have any right to have a voice or share my opinions. Since I'm a dude, my identity is binary, and I won't lie when I say that I'm functionally bisexual because I've never met a genderqueer person that I'd want to be in a relationship with. This probably makes me a Bad member of the Community.

Am I right in this assumption? Dreamwidth, tell me your thoughts. Is someone like me better off not getting involved or speaking in queer spaces?
