The Gender Tag Project – and exploration of gender and its implications

The Gender Tag provides an interesting way to explore some of the issues around Gender expression and gender identity and people’s experiences with them.  The questions that are the catalyst for the project can be used independently of the online project to begin conversation about how we understand and experience gender.

The Gender Tag Prompts
1. How do you self-identify your gender, and what does that definition mean to you?
 2. What pronouns honor you?
 3. Describe the style of clothing that you most often wear.
 4. Talk about your choices with body hair. How do you style your hair? Do you have facial hair? What do you choose to shave, or choose not to shave?
 5. Talk about cosmetics. Do you choose to wear makeup? Do you paint your nails? What types of soaps and perfumes do you use if any?
 6. Have you experienced being misgendered? If so, how often?
 7. Do you experience dysphoria? How does that affect you?
 8. Talk about children. Are you interested in having children? Would you want to carry a child if that were an option for you? Do you want to be the primary caretaker for any children you may have?
 9. Talk about money. Is it important to you to provide for a family financially if you choose to have one? Is it important to you that you earn more than any partner you may have? Do you prefer to pay for things like dates? Are you uncomfortable when others pay for you or offer to pay for you?
 10. Anything else you want to share about your experience with gender?
