Recently, the US Department of Labor announced it would consider gender identity and pregnancy to be protected statuses. Any discrimination based on these factors would be considered sex discrimination. This change extends equal opportunity protections to all genderqueer people working for or looking to be hired by the federal government.

Exploring Gender: "What's in a name?"

http://www.stanford.edu/group/ccr/blog/hello-my-name-is.jpg

 

As I continue to think about myself and my gender, there are certain questions which sprawl through my mind. I often find myself quoting in my head Romeo and Juliet: “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose / by any other name would smell as sweet” (Shakespeare II. ii. 47-48). These lines are important to remember, meaning that no matter what the name, the make up of the individual remains the same. Names are assigned, only a signifier of the person you are. So why am I discussing names?

Gender and Sex Are Not Interchangeable Terms

 gender

 
Dear Sappho,

How many sexes or genders are there anyway, and how are they defined? I suspect there are at least 4 and possibly 8. It seems like we not living in a black and white dualistic world any more that is limited to just males & females. There are many shades of grey that make the world seem much more complicated.

Exploring Gender: The Interview

job interviewI had a job interview today, the first one in about a year. And though I now go by Cael on a day to day basis, I have still not changed my name legally, so I still must legally apply as Mary. In the course of past interviews, it has always been difficult to try to figure out how to dress as my life has progressed. At first, it was easy—though uncomfortable—to put on some tight pin stripe pants and a spaghetti-string tank top under an equally tight button up shirt. Then as I grew more comfortable with myself, I would trade the tight pants for some men’s slacks instead. Little by little, my style changed to reflect my male identity, and I no longer own any women’s clothes.
