Genderqueer is a catch-all category for gender identities other than man and woman, thus outside of the gender binary and cisnormativity.  Genderqueer people may identify as one or more of the following:
- having an overlap of, or indefinite lines between, gender identity and sexual and romantic orientation 
- two or more genders (bigender, trigender, pangender)
- without a gender (nongendered, genderless, agender; neutrois)
- moving between genders or with a fluctuating gender identity (genderfluid) 
- third gender or other-gendered; includes those who do not place a name to their gender

You were saying?
EDIT: If you want to discuss this further with me, feel free to send asks/etc. over to my general blog, inkclaws. I can’t keep talking about this stuff in my art-only blog!
schim replied to your post “Stop posting things in the FTM tag. 1. Your gross defiling of a childs character doesn’t belong .. and you’re “genderqueer”… you don’t belong in the FEMALE TO MALE TRANSSEXUAL TAG.”
I am disgusted that drawing a characters as naked and dfab trans is considered “defiling them”. Fucking wow. So a character being trans is now defiling them?
Agreed. I guess some people just don’t like it when characters are drawn as “non-canon” gender identities but… as I said to them, don’t like it, don’t look. If I want to pretend this character has a body similar to mine, that’s my business. Go back to your own corner of the internet. I tagged my shit.
What exactly is a “childs character.” Does a child own this character? Do you think the character is under 18? Because he’s not. I do not draw characters under 18. Korra is currently 18, assuming Opal is the same age is her and the fact Huan is her older brother… he’s probably 19-20, and that is the age I had in mind while drawing him. It’s never actually stated, but that is my “artist’s intent.”
If you mean the fact that the series is apparently for children… um. Okay? It’s clearly marked NSFW. There’s a banner and everything to hide it. The blog where you see the whole thing is listed as 18+. I can’t do much else to shield your eyes from shit you don’t want to see. You’ve got to take care of the rest of that. (TumblrSavior, etc. Use it.)
Also who are you to decide what genderqueer is? Or who belongs in what tag? You don’t know me, or anything about me. I am genderqueer, and I just happen to also be transgender. I will continue to post in those tags because I enjoy drawing GQ versions of characters. As an artist, I enjoy seeing my gender identity being depicted in media. If it’s not there, I’ll make it myself.
It is going to be found at iacomic.com! I haven’t been able to do much with it since thesis though, because real life has been kicking my butt. :( The best way to keep up with the status of IA is following my art blog here, though.
Hey guys, I’m wondering what
-you’d like to see me focus on in my art
-what you like so far
-what you’d like to see improve
-anything that irks you about my art.
-stuff you want to see me draw.
Feel free to go anon, I won’t be publishing or responding these but I’ll appreciate the input. Thank you!
