ah, yes, as opposed to natural, organic genders harvested from the Gender Tree in the far-off, mystical Gender Land
i’m half-mexican, half-white. but i don’t identify as being white. i identify as latino/latina. i grew up in mexico and didn’t move to the US until i was 12. i grew up with the mexican culture, and my first language was spanish. so even though i’m technically only half, i see myself as mexican.
but the thing is, people who don’t know me look at me and see me as white, because i have light hair and light skin. and the sad thing is, even though i’m not white, i benefit from white privilege because i know i’ll never be racially discriminated against because of my physical appearance. and that’s messed up because there are people who can’t just “pass” like i do.
on another note, it’s really offensive to me whenever i tell someone i’m mexican and they say “but you’re so white!”. when people say this, it makes me feel like my identity is being discounted, and it’s just kind of a weird thing to say (even though i know that’s it’s not coming from a bad place). it also triggers bad memories from my childhood, because i had an emotionally/verbally abusive aunt who would tell me that i would never really be a part of the family and that i could thank my white mother for that.
that’s just a condensed version of my personal experience with being mixed-race. your identity is your own, and no one else can change it. so don’t worry about labeling; you are who you are! and there are some things in life that shouldn’t have to be put in a box
