Understanding gender identities and personal pronouns?
The musician and poet formerly named Kate Tempest has changed their name to Kae Tempest, and announced they are non-binary.
No, me neither. But let us progress:
In an interview with Notion in August 2019, they discussed their queer identity: “It took me a long time to be able to stand with my own queerness and where I sit on the gender spectrum.
So, queerness – where it doesn’t mean odd – means same sex attraction. If you’ve just declared that you are non-binary you cannot have same sex attraction. Well, presumably. For to do so would require identifying as the sex one is attracted to, no? Or would this mean that one is only attracted to other non-binaries?
So, can you be both non-binary and queer? And if so are peeps being logically serious or just playing around with words?
