Everybody tends to focus on the “neither by man nor by woman” part of those complicated prophecies – yes, get the jokes about nonbinary dragon-slayers out of your system! – but in practice, that’s typically only one of several clauses which all need to be satisfied.
Other frequent stipulations of such prophecies may include “neither indoors nor outdoors”, “neither during the day nor during the night”, “neither alone nor in company”, “neither by human nor by beast”, “neither while naked nor while clothed”, and so forth.
It’s the last one I’d like to consider today.
Specifically: fursuits.

I don't know who needs to hear this but dressing in pastel isn't dressing femme, and sometimes your masc outfit being streetwear/sporty esque is not a bad thing, especially if you're closeted.
I saw a shitty post and I needed to prove it wrong. Sometimes your masc outfit is some joggers and a shirt and that's okay. You don't need to go out on a limb to be extra masc/femme/etc, esp if you're closeted. You can still wear makeup even if you're masc!
There's no rules on dressing in your preferred gender. Trust me. Fuck the rules.

JK Rowling has condemned the “utterly shameful” treatment of a teenage girl who felt forced to leave her school after pupils hounded her for challenging the views of a visiting speaker.
The author waded into the row after a teacher at the school claimed the unnamed girl was treated like a heretic for questioning a politician’s assertions about sex.
After debating with the speaker, a female member of the House of Lords, the sixth form student at the private girl’s school said she was surrounded by up to 60 pupils who shouted, screamed and spat at her. She escaped and said she collapsed, unable to breathe properly.
Teachers were initially supportive but withdrew their backing after the other sixth-formers accused the girl of transphobia, and the school ended up apologising for not maintaining a “safe space” in the sixth form.
The teenager returned to school a few times but was told she would have to work in the library if she said anything provocative in lessons, and faced bullying and accusations of transphobia from pupils throughout the school. She also spent break and lunch times in the library. The girl left in December and is studying at home.
Writing on Twitter to her 14 million followers, Rowling shared the Times article and described her treatment as “utterly shameful”. “Add this to the tottering pile of evidence that people in education and academia who’ve supposed to have a duty of care towards the young have succumbed to an outbreak of quasi-religious fanaticism,” she added. “The girl’s crime? Saying ‘sex exists’.”
Rowling has repeatedly come under fire for defending public figures against accusations of transphobia. On Sunday she criticised balaclava-wearing activists involved in a stand-off around the statue of Emmeline Pankhurst in St Peter’s Square, Manchester.
She said: “I never expected the right side of history to include so many people in masks intimidating and assaulting women, did you?”
The girl spoke to The Times about the incident with the peer. “The language she was using was implying critical theory took precedence over biological reality in defining women.” She added: “When I questioned that, she said it wasn’t an issue of semantics. She said trans people don’t have basic human rights in this country. Afterwards I spoke to her and said I’m sorry if I came across as rude.” The pair parted amicably, the girl said.
A teacher at the school said: “We know how these views are being silenced in the adult world through high-profile legal cases and the bullying and defamation of celebrities such as JK Rowling. This is also happening in schools.”
Writing for the website Transgender Trend, he said: “There was a time when the school invited in Christian and other religious speakers to address moral and ethical issues and to provide food for thought and contemplation. It was usually the practice to follow these up with Q&A sessions during which the students could share their own feelings and opinions on the issues, and even disagree if they wanted to.”
It was the similarity of transgender ideology to religious fundamentalism that “alerted me to the danger of what has been going on in our schools over the last few years”, the teacher added.
He said a group of sixth-formers arrived in an “animated state” after the speaker’s visit, with a “significant group of girls verbally ‘laying into’ one particular 18-year-old who had had the audacity to question the position”.
The teacher added: “It was probably somewhat naive of her not to realise that this is indeed ‘an ideology’ and one with which you’re simply not allowed to disagree.” The 18-year-old girl ended up denounced by other pupils in the school. The teacher said: “It is quite chilling to witness first hand how this ideology operates and grows.”
He said: “It was the whispered and frequent use of the terms transphobe and transphobic during that after-school activity that alerted me to the depressing fact that these girls were going along with the narrative that our heretic was, as far as they were concerned, indeed a heretic — and that she was thoroughly deserving of the roasting that she had just received before caving in and running off in a panicked and hyperventilating state.”
The girl told The Times that she would have completed her A-levels at the school had it not been for the incident in October. “It made me think I was mad,” she said. “Otherwise how could people turn on me so bitterly?”
She said she never uttered anything transphobic but felt that some teachers were less inclined to believe her because the other pupils made joint accusations.
The pupil said she was in effect forced to quarantine in the library instead of spending time in the sixth-form centre.

I been identifying bigender{agender+transman} for a while and I feel connected to xenogenders but I don’t know which I’m connected to and I feel connected to some xenogenders. It’s a mix feeling cause I feel connected to those genders but then again I don’t what I’m connected to.
Can I still be bigender and be xenogender or I have to be trigender or something else?? And maybe leave some xenogenders.
it sounds like you could be xeno-aligned/xenic.
Generally being bigender means having two genders/identifying with a combination of two genders, so if you identify with three genders you wouldn't really fit that. you could identify as trigender or multigender, though.
I don't know many specific xenogenders but basically anything could be a xenogender. There are a lot of xenogenders based on space and celestial elements, as well as aesthetics, and media.
hope that helps!!

thinking a lot about odo ds9's gender, despite being a gloopy he's very much a man and I find that very interesting. odo chooses to be a man even though he doesn't have a "biological sex" or whatever and no one ever questions that
I wonder what draws him to masculinity, I'd like to talk to him about it
anyway quodo are t4t

@cromulentenough @vacuouslyfalse
You don't have to read past this paragraph if you don't want, it's just more of me thinking out loud and unguardedly about gender, but I just wanted to thank you two for being very civil and understanding in our disagreement. Either way I feel like I'm learning a lot.
HOWEVER, it all still doesn't sit right with me and I think I need to combine your posts/points to figure out why.
I suppose one of the reasons I think of gender as Not A Social Construct - why I specifically deny the interpersonal definition of gender put forward by VF here - is that I simply don't believe I would not be a man if I did not have people around me to perceive me as such, and the thought of it makes me uncomfortable in ways I can't quite articulate. It also, and this is important, makes me uncomfortable that other people might think that I wasn't a man in such a situation, or indeed any situation. I'll come back to that point.
CE, I think the article you sent me is undoubtedly a great one. It is well argued, it is clear in its points despite mixing analogies, and I am compelled to accept that it has a good point, that the borders, both figurative and literal, between definitions of things ARE pretty weird! I don't know if it was necessarily supposed to counter my argument in some way, or whether you're cautioning me to live with the consequences and implications of my definitions. Off VF's point, I very emphatically prefer to keep my conceptions of "gender" and "gender roles" separate. I would think the cis butch lesbians are women and the GNC cis men are men, because I might define gender roles by how stereotypically feminine or masculine one acts in everyday life, but not gender itself. People in the latter two categories you mentioned, I would be more likely to consider agender, since by (my) definition, their self-perception doesn't line up with the way their sexual phenotype has shaken out, nor particularly with any other typical sexual phenotype you are likely to find without being born intersex. That seems pretty self-consistent to me, and I have yet to think of an example where it would break down.
And yet. And yet. It's not enough for me. "If your definition works for you, use it" is a great sentiment, but I find it terribly unsatisfying. I would drop my current definition in a heartbeat if tomorrow I was told a more correct, true, and self-consistent definition of gender that worked for even more people. I like being right, but I like being wrong and finding out the truth even more.
It bothers me that my largely incorrect, overly simplistic, woefully incomplete definition of gender could be considered a valuable enough framework to be used even if that use is limited to myself. A lot of people have definitions of gender that are largely incorrect, overly simplistic, and woefully incomplete! TERFs are a great example. Find me a single TERF whose conception of gender extends beyond women having a vagina, making the babies and having two X chromosomes, while men do the violence, have a Y chromosome and generally exist as all that's wrong with the world. And of course that doesn't work as a framework of gender for most of the world. It works for them though, and clearly they're more than willing to deal with the consequences and implications of it. In SlateStarCodex terms, they are the King Solomons saying "well my purview is protecting all people with XX chromosomes and appropriate sexual characteristics ("women") from every other being on the planet ("m*n"). But I don't think the definition suiting their purposes is a good enough excuse for them to use it! Obviously it is right for trans people to be bothered by this, just as I am bothered that some people might think under certain circumstances that I am not a man!
Maybe I could be okay with having a hierarchy of gender definition Good-ness of Fit. But leaving it up to individuals to determine what gender means to them is not only, obviously, nightmarishly difficult to legislate, but it also is as much to imply that my definition of gender is no better than that of a TERF. I obviously don't want that to be the case! I know TERFs aren't correct, and I want to be more correct than them, but it seems like you're both saying that it's technically impossible. If there is a hierarchical goodness of fit, I'd like at least to know how it's sorted and to try and improve upon it as best I can.
I'm saying all of this because I believe that a robust and widely-held definition of what gender actually is will help trans people in the long-term and possibly even the short-term. We all know radfems don't, won't, and possibly psychologically can't take these things on faith, and their reliance on hard categories over subjective experiences will ultimately win over more neutral observers than it will lose. So if I could do one thing in my entire life for trans discourse it would be to present them with a definition of gender they cannot deny or refute with their present arguments. The very LAST thing I would want to do would be to tell them that the definition of gender is up to them and their perspectives.

People say stuff like 'what does your gender feel like inside?' but what am I supposed to feel? What am I supposed to be feeling? What am I supposed to be looking for? If gender expression is not gender, and neither is pronouns, then what is gender?
honestly, if you're just starting out to question your gender, trying to answer very simple questions will be much easier. you'll gain more of an understanding of gender in general and how you relate to it over time.
So just imagine if you're in a group of people and you're asked to stand on one side of the room based on gender (so men on one side women on the other), where would you want to go? you might say you'd go to one side, or that you'd stand in the middle of the room and wouldn't know where to go, or maybe you'd go wherever the cat is to pet it, because there's a cat what else would you do?? whatever your answer is, think about how you feel about the place you went (if you went to one side, are you comfortable there? does it matter to you where you go?). if you were uncomfortable in that place, find a better one. be as creative as you need to to find a good place for yourself.
alternatively, make a few characters, give them as much detail as you want. you can also just choose characters from your favorite media. then sort them by how much you relate to them and see what trends you see towards their genders.
these won't tell you your exact gender, but they might give you a bit of a better understanding of your own gender.
also, presentation and pronouns don't equal gender identity, but they are good indicators towards your gender, so you don't have to disregard them when questioning at all.

[Tweet from @/fozmeadows: "human gender and sexuality are very much like animal taxonomy, in that both look structured and simple on the surface, but once you start investigating, it turns out there's actually no such thing as a fish despite the fact that we all know what a fish is, and that's okay"]
