When I began my transition I described myself as transmasculine, and that still holds true in the sense that I have legally and medically transitioned to male. But I never felt attached to being “masculine.” I have too many negative associations with the aggressive and violent stereotypes that accompany that word. And yet, I don’t relate to being “feminine” either. Ultimately, I feel these concepts are both too subjective to be useful to me, hence I now identify as agender.
