Liquid. It is free flowing and I believe gender is free flowing as well. Vanesa

It will be liquid like water in a permanent and semi permanent state; it can stand still and can move when it is allowed to and so is gender. Bret

Liquid, it doesn’t have a specific shape until it’s poured into a vessel or container. Chantell

Liquid like water. Whatever you chose to be, water is still the essence of everything. Gerret

Gas, as it is out there in the open, so is gender. We can humanly feel, but not see it as it is. Paula

Liquid is moveable and flexible, so gender can be flexible too. West

Gender is fluid (liquid) because we cannot contain it in our hands; it will slip through our fingers. Even if we contain them they will always stay fluid. Pau

Liquid, because our character / behavior keeps changing every time and is always flowing. Jessi

Liquid like water, even though you can see the liquid you can’t identify what kind it is, whether water or alcohol or else. Like you can’t see someone’s gender from the outside. Mari

How does gender sound/move/act to you? Why?

27. August 2019 von admin | Kommentare deaktiviert für How does gender sound/move/act to you? Why?

Chantell: Like water transitioning into different forms in a series of moments. My personal experience with gender is that its fluid. It takes different forms within me at different times

Jessi: It moves like a robot – edgy – straight. Because gender is created by society, which gives us the „rules“ how to act or move.

Gift: It would be like mud or clay in the hands of a porter because it can be molded into whatever shape or form you like or what you think feels natural.

Toivo: It sounds like a baby crying. We all cried at birth regardless what gender you are.

Vivien: Gender sounds like ocean waves for me. I believe the ocean is one of the most breathtaking spots where one can calmly relax and express themselves.

Sendy: Gender does not have a specific way, form or behaviour but our society has a set of ideas and rules on how we expect women or men to behave and portray themselves. Just because our society is gender biased does not mean we should do the same.

Gerret: Movement, The flow of water because it represent all its three states and gender is almost the same.

Jesaya: Sound, It sounds neutral from the triangle instrument. It is distinct you dont really know where or how to place it.

Paula: It will be a cat walk movement because it is determined by every step and move with confidence and control.

What is gender to you and why?

26. August 2019 von admin | Kommentare deaktiviert für What is gender to you and why?

Jesaya: gender is the freedom to be yourself irregardless of social norms

Maxime: Not male or female but what you make of yourself/let yourself be

Pau: fluid – wide range of experiences, not only in the binary spectrum
an expression and social construct it changes through time and is complex
language gender is a lie binary spectrum is exclusive, there is more
complex and difficult to discuss about/ bring it to the table, discuss openly, deconstruct the structure

Paula: what we find comfortable within our inner-self before laying it out there because I am what I portray out there

Tyshea: a stereotypical construction given by society. It used to be a clear role allocation but now there are no more boundaries. For me there is fusion and a lot inbetween because each and every one is unique.

Mariana: an individual feeling combining a mixture of male and female energies. Some have more male or more female, some in between. Defining partly your behaviour and personality. Therefore we have multiple genders, however on paper we have three in Germany.

Gerret: an idea to identify difference among humans.
