Genderbruised Flag

"what I did was looked at the different color stages of a bruise, and settled on these. The first color is a dark reddish-purple, which is what a bruise looks like in the very beginning. Then, it moves into purple (and sometimes blue), followed by a coral color surrounded by yellow. Finally, what was coral in the middle turns into a light brown, once again surrounded by yellow."

Genderbruised (or Bruisegender) is a neurogender defined as "a gender that is sensitive and hurts like a bruise whenever you explore the gender. This can be caused by tramua [sic], anxiety, ptsd, ocd, or other related neurodivergencies. Over time the “ bruise ” feeling can heal but it doesn’t always heal."1

MOGAI-Watch Poem

I stubbed my toe the other day,
and it came to me, I remember:
if you can stub a body part,
why can’t you stub your gender?

I’ve identified from that day forth
as proudly genderbruised:
I have stubbed my gender on
the West’s MOGAIphobic views.
