Epicene by IsangsimaronBatis
Epicene
Edits in Photoshop: edited out the background and increased the exposure, because without the exposure the lipstick and nail polish aren't visible. 

It's been a long time since I wore a beard, so my apologies that it looks weird.

I would have liked to use more flowy garments to communicate my understanding of epicene, but I actually haven't been able to find the style I'm looking for yet, so I'm settling for completely masculine clothes for now. D  :

Genderstruggle by IsangsimaronBatis
Genderstruggle
The androgyne symbol and epicene symbol are not mine, someone else came up with them. I modified the genderqueer symbol a little. 

----

Now I identify as a mirl under the genderqueer umbrella, but the genderqueer umbrella is, to my understanding, huge, encompassing all sorts of people who identify themselves differently. 

The one I've been avoiding analysis of is androgyne. Physically it's a fitting descriptor for me, mentally it's not, as I'm not in harmony with myself as a woman at all. I also don't feel like it's right to describe me as I'm androgynous by chance, rather than it being an identity I embrace and express.

Epicene gives the sense of being more indeterminate. I find that sometimes I feel myself to truly be a girl, and see things as a girl, other times I feel as I'm simply and only an effeminate male, but mostly I'm in harmony with both simultaneously without conflict or exclusion. Because I don't feel as polarized between the two, and there's little to no involuntary switching between poles, I don't consider myself bigender--and it seems a lot of bigender people fluctuate between boy and girl or woman and man, or a binary gender and non-binary gender, or two non-binary genders, but, ones that are typical for their age. Nor do I consider myself genderfluid, since my feeling of gender identity and my gender presentation has been fairly static so far.

I guess also, even when I identified as a woman, my gender presentation was towards the epicene rather than androgynous---performing womanhood rather than being at true peace with at least part of it.

This is just my own understanding of epicene and isn't intended to conflict with any other definitions of epicene. 

I know it's been a whirlwind as to the myriad labels I've taken up over the past few months, but I guess it really takes time to figure out who you are. 

Given this information, I currently identify as an epicene mirl under the genderqueer umbrella under the trans* umbrella.    :    )

Interests
For implying I'm not trans enough. For assuming I want chest surgery. For  saying that my body isn't already male. I recognize your unique needs and journeys. But in this fragile moment where I could really rely on a community, my journey is apparently worth less than yours. It really feels like you're just 'sirring' me as a courtesy, as a recognition of a future male.

Thanks to you, I now identify as genderqueer.

Thank you so much for the favorite! I appreciate the support. 

I really enjoyed reading what you had to say on gender identity-it's a perspective that needs to be heard.
