so i was reading your blog and since you are aware of the problematic connotations of third gender i’m a little confused why you tagged something as pangender which also has problematic implications
without knowing what post you’re referring to, it’s hard for me to really tell you why i tagged any particular post that way.
that said, if i do a tag search on my blog, the last post that i tagged with #pangender was an ask from 2015 in which an anon asked me how i feel about the term pangender, which you may be interested in reading, anon. either way, it’s a given that i would tag that post #pangender, just as i’m going to do with this post.
i’m going to assume you ran into some old post of mine from 2014 or older since aside from the aforementioned ask (and the related response posts), that was the last time i tagged anything #pangender.
if that’s the case, then the answer is simple: i didn’t know any better back then.
edit: i feel like i should edit this post to add that even though i still feel conflicted over how i feel about pangender, that doesn’t mean that i would ever question someone who identifies as such and i’m sorry if the above response feels invalidating to pangender people. it isn’t, however, a tag that i use anymore unless a post is explicitly about pangender, like this post is.
edit edit: also, while we’re on the subject, maxigender may be worth looking into for anyone interested in pangender and it’s problematicness.
