Volume 1 : The Introduction
Burning that midnight oil!
Hello friends, welcome to this page in history. Welcome to the androgynous vault. A blog (and perhaps sometimes vlog, yes it does feel slightly different with a v but don't worry, it doesn't hurt) that hopes to give you an insight into a world through androgynous eyes. This blog (that might sometimes be a vlog) is hosted by myself (Ninja) and my bestest bud MoneT. Let me start by introducing myself and my co-host.
My name is Cara but I like to go by the name of Ninja. I am 22 years old, I call myself a lesbian and I like to wear boys clothes. I have trouble calling myself a musician, instead I will just say I play drums in a band called The Mothership. I also like skateboarding, more specifically longboarding. When I'm not doing fun things, I'm at university and the rest of the time I'm probably drinking tea and generally being a nerd.
This week I am writing on MoneT's behalf so I will also introduce her to you. You may know MoneT as 'Saturday' on the youtube collaboration channel Lezzismore but I know her as Pirate and the bass player in the aforementioned band The Mothership. She's also my twin, except we have different parents. We're not sure how that happened... Anyway, MoneT is a very creative person, and she is always doing creative things. If she looks a little familiar to you, it's because you can also find her on the Lezzismore vlogs, right here on PNT Tv on a Saturday.
After all those formalities perhaps I shall get to the point of this blog - Androgyny. I sometimes feel that androgyny can be confused with other stereotypes although at the same time, I get confused with the true definition of 'androgyny'. I've looked at many definitions and they all basically say that in terms of gender identity, an androgynous person is a person who does not fit perfectly into the typical masucline and feminine gender roles of their society. Some people say that many androgynous people identify as mentally 'between' woman and man, or as entirely genderless. I personally wasn't aware of this. Although I call myself androgynous, I definitely identify as female but I believe that physically I don't look particularly feminine or masculine, I look either and somedays I lean more or less one way.
Although I can't provide a clear and complete definition of androgyny, I can offer some perspective of what everyday is like for an androgynous person. For those of you readers out there wondering what it's like to live an androgynous life, well I can help you with that.
That's all for this week, I hope you come back next time, we'll make it worth your while.
May the force be with you,
(MoneT) and Ninja.
