Genderqueer — if someone becomes a woman rather than someone was born as a woman —

According to Dentsu, a Japanese think tank, Japanese population of LGBT+ has increased day by day. It said that 5.2% of Japanese people considered themselves as sexual minorities in 2012 (L 0.1%, G 0.3%, B 0.7%, T 4.1%) while the result in 2015 indicates 7.6% of total. According to the research in 2015, the percentage of each sexuality is L 0.5%, G 0.9%, B 1.7% and T 0.7%, and you can find a dramatical drop of Transgender. It is said that ex-T people have identified their own genders as L, G, and other new kinds of minorities such as Asexual and Genderqueer. Genderqueer includes a person who does not have any gender, is genderfluid, bigender, pangender and so on.

It seems a quite natural concept for me to consider myself as a genderqueer because I personally believe that people are educated as each gender rather than their innate personalities. It is similar to the ideas of social constructivism.

For example, the definition of “feminine” in Japan includes the “ideal attributes” such as neat, obedient, quiet or other aspects based on fiction stories. Being femine requires a certain level of skill of acting.

Why they need to act as women?

The first reason is a negative one, they can avoid being gotten angry by other such as families and friends. (Level 1)

The second reason is to fascinate others to live safely, earn money, satisfy their self-esteem and so on. (Level 2)

The last reason is to be loved by someone else she loves. It can be said that she is a professional actress. (Level 3)
