Clothing has no gender. Just ask Tyler Ford, who I cited in my article on agender fashion. It’s especially absurd to put a “women’s” or “men’s” tag on an article of clothing that isn’t specific to the contours of a typically-male or typically-female body. (Shoes come to mind.)
On the left is a photo of me, taken shortly before the start of my gender transition, wearing my favorite denim jacket. I bought it in the “women’s” section of a thrift store. But now over two years into my transition to male, I still wear the jacket. Does the fact that the buttons are on the left instead of the right invalidate my gender identity?
The relentless gendering of everything is a barrier to everyone’s free expression, whether they are cis, trans, or non-binary. We should work to grant all people the freedom to live authentic lives, without fear of bullying, discrimination, or violence.
