From birth, we are each assigned a gender based on physical sex. (males are boys and females are girls)
We grow up being required by society to uphold the expectations of that gender if we want to fit in.
Why can’t we see that there is something wrong with this? Why is it so hard for so many to grasp the idea that gender is not something you are born with.

Society says,
“To be a boy you need to look sharp or rugged.
To be a girl you need to look stunning and beautiful.”
I say,
“What is wrong with looking like a boy?
What is wrong with looking like a girl?
Absolutely nothing, unless your mother, your father, your peers, your employer, your friends, your family and the rest of society is expecting you to look like something you are not.”

As a biological male I was expected to grow up and ‘be a man!’ But what does that even mean?

What is so wrong about growing up to just simply be a great human being?

I am Elliott Alexzander, and this is my inspiration for chapter 2 of my story.

Wow! What can I say, an amazing look, you pull off your unique gender fluid style so well, always managing to put stunning and interesting outfits together, conveying a touching vulnerability with a fierce pride. Your story and thoughts are so inspirational, you really are liberating men from the tyranny of deathly gender stereotypes, helping people to see that they really can just be themselves, and be so much happier and creative as a result. Thank you Nx

Thank you nick! Thank you for your continued support and encouragement!

You are exactly right. I try to catch peoples eye with my style, so that I may have the opportunity to explain to them on how and why my personal fashion sense actually represents a much bigger part of my life than just my love for fashion. My goal is to inspire!
