Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the gendered societal structure



Now you can finally have your say in shaping future government policy!


The Government Equalities Office (GEO) has launched an online survey as part of consultation process for TransEquality Action Plan.


The government action plan proposes a long awaited and overdue breakthrough in that there is recognition finally that our needs have not been addressed.


I must stress it is VITAL that non-gendered human beings in the UK get involved and complete the survey.


It is through participation that we can increase our visibility as a group and inform the government about the measures that urgently require to be undertaken in order to address our situation and implement change that best meets our needs.


The survey that can be accessed from within an e-bulletin on the GEO website  http://www.equalities.gov.uk/news/transgender.aspx


The GEO request that surveys are completed no later than 6 May 2011.


Any questions relating to the survey or other aspects of the Government Action Plan should be addressed to Transgender@geo.gsi.gov.uk.


Visit http://elancane.livejournal.com for more information about the survey (and a warning about glitches in the system).


The denial of existence is the worst act of discrimination by the gendered majority against the non-gendered.

Non-gendered Europa Manifest

I edited page in Wikia adress: http://non-gendered-europa.wikia.com/  for manifest Europa without gender registration.

After Lisbon treatment in European Union it is possible to collect 1 million names for to change law in Europa. (ec.europa.eu/dgs/secretariat_general/citizens_initiative/)

Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the societal gender system




Community members and guests might be interested in what is happening now in the UK.

Latest updates on my journal http://elancane.livejournal.com


The denial of existence is the worst act of discrimination by the gendered majority against the non-gendered.



I placed an article on the subject of Christie Elan-Cane in Wikipedia recently.  However it has been deleted, without a satisfactory reason for this happening.  This article has been blocked because, according to Wikipedia, it ‘does not indicate the importance or significance of the subject’.  This is both incorrect and censorship.

The administration team at Wikipedia are rather high and mighty in their zeal to protect the integrity of Wikipedia, but their perspective of the world is rather skewed.  Perhaps they view non-gendered activism as too way out to be considered a subject worthy of note by Wikipedia users.  On the other hand, there are numerous entries for persons who have contributed to the porn industry.

Christie has an important message to get across, and will be heard.  The significance of Christie’s work is self evident, and will eventually be acknowledged even by the dimwits at Wikipedia.

The article that Wikipedia did not want to be seen can be found here.

...that one day, you woke up and found out that the world has changed overnight to completely erase human sex and gender. Everyone is androgynous, has no memories of the gender-split world, and the entire human culture has adjusted to this new state of existence. Even historical evidence has changed to cover the traces.

You, on the other hand, while physically transformed, retain memories of the world that was. What will you do? Will you share this knowledge, or carry it to your grave?

G(end)er T Shirt

There's a service here that makes custom T shirts based on the provided picture, so I used it to make one for myself. Credit for the idea goes to st_reinnovate.

The circle, of course, represents the basic part of the male and female symbols with the gender-specific parts removed.

Undocumented Feature on Facebook?

When I created a private profile on Facebook, just for one person, I was pissed to find out that the "sex" field was mandatory (and, of course, binary).

Today, when editing my profile, I tried to change that field to the only option besides male and female, which reads "Select Sex:", just to see what error message would pop up. To my surprise, the profile got saved. And to my further surprise, the pronoun used to refer to me on my profile page was changed to "they".

Of course, it's good to see that this feature exists, and I suppose it counts as a small victory, but it only brings further questions.

  • Why is it so confusingly named? 99% of Facebook users would never even think that an option named "Select Sex:" is actually selectable. Why not do something like deviantART with its "Gender Unspecified"?

  • Why isn't this option available at registration? As it is, registration forces you to choose male or female.

  • Why isn't the "singular they mode" mentioned anywhere in the help?

New, and out as nongendered today...

This is x-posted to my journal and transfurry, but I am new to this community and just came out to my parents. Here's the play-by-play, if you're interested.

"I imagined it so much better. I actually came out to my parents as nongendered today. I have been working up the nerve for quite a while now, but everything just went... wrong.
I've been talking about things on the edge of that, and have mentioned wanting to change my name to something less gender affiliated. This time, though, my mother actually guessed it. She was yelling at the dinner table, "She wants to be androgynous! Well that's too bad, because you're female and you can't change that!" Neither she nor my father, I realize now, knew at the time that that is exactly what I am! My father took the position of "It's fine to have radical ideas, but don't be so crazy with them!" While my mother was attacking me for challenging society's norms and the ultimate authority of my genitals, Father berated me for being "high strung" about the issue. Mother ultimately accused me of "abusing" her when I tried to logically defend myself from her repeated verbal attacks, and when Father again pounded me about being tense, I finally broke down. I told them that I had been trying for some time to be able to tell them this, and now I was being attacked, and was therefore not only high strung, but angry, scared, and feeling rejected and ignored. This was when they said what. They seemed suddenly not to know that I was not female, had never been. So I told them that straight out.

And now I am in a deep vat of the nastiest familial brainwaves I have experienced."

So, any comments? Such as, how do I fix this?! ^-^
