To Enjoy Genders: for a queer listening of gender non-binaries

The present work aims to explore the subjective, relational, and social experiences of individuals who question the gender binarism. From a queer standpoint, we start exploring and deconstructing the oppressive social mechanisms of this binarism. We interviewed eight people who question the gender binarism and proceeded to the thematic analysis to systemize the collected data (Braun e Clarke 2006). Two themes emerged from this analyse: (i) subjectivation processes – at the level of the self and of the otherness, portraying the hardships and achievements; (ii) «Without a place of one’s own»- characterization of the oppression of hetereonormativity in the subject positions and in the processes of genderization of contexts. These themes shed light to the dehumanizing experience of the clash between non-identifying with the gender binarism and the demand to obey the norms.
