Okay, I'll actually try and compose this journal to adress all the things I intend it to before I get all delirious. So-
1. I haven't been keeping up with Oasis so well, sorry. JayJay has been somewhat... I don't know, obsessed about having sleepovers with me. Last night, and 3 nights ago both. And 2 nights ago I plain ol' didn't have anything to really say, and I was exhausted. So sorry if I've been slow about answering anyone who talks to me.
2.Today's Jay's birthday! (That's the reason for the sleepover last night; we were counting down 'till midnight. It's been a tradition since 3rd grade, and it must be honored sacredly.(Is that a word?)
3.I have a new cousin, born on the 26th! I'm happy... though I had to babysit the other 2 cousins (ages 5+ 6) yesterday for a VERY long time...
4.I miss BDAY... whinewhinewhines nobody wants to hear.
5.The POINTof this journal: Mother opinion on genderness! Aren't we all so very happy...not. I hope I don't piss Shelby off again*gulp*
So.. As I said, my brother decided blee/bler/blis is the new gender-neutral pronoun, and I was debating whether or not to adopt it. There are pros and cons.
So, today I was sitting there reading a book and my mom suddenly leans close to me and whispers,'I know you're female.You'll figure it all out soon.' So I asked, of course, 'What do you mean?' (Gotta see how much is KNOWN!)
'Well, I think you've been having some... gender questioning issues lately.'(No duh. I've been correcting you every time you call me 'she'.)
'Um... it's not really questioning. I'm a gajindiak, or androgynous-'
'Androgyny doesn't EXIST! How would you even KNOW?!'
'How doesn't it exist? And I know, okay?'
'You know you're female?'
'I know I have a female BODY.'
'Well, anyway, I know you'll be comfortable in it eventually.What matters is that you keep faith in God,wholoves you whatever body.You're female, though.'
So now God loves me whether I know I'm female or not. Oh-So-comforting.
