I am excitedly working on a brief treatise on hypersexuality as it pertains to my own experiences and observations of gender queering.
In the piece I will discuss how the experience of hypersexuality is often – but not always – inclusive of the experiences of gender questioning, gender orientation and identity blurring, switching orientations and/or identities (for some people back-and-forth), and a host of other types of gender transgressions, including the less-talked-about more-fluid-states of gender experience.
One of the currently being dealt with realities of gender labeling is the social tendency toward static definitions. Some people will even claim that anything less than a fully-committed-to and static (or currently stabilizing) self definition of ones gender is somehow less-than-genuine. Sometimes, some people would even demand that an individual be fully disclosed and open about their sexual orientation and/or identity in order to qualify as an “authentic member” of whatever orientation or identity is being question.
Both of which are just as seriously wrong in terms of gender ignorance and sexuality based judgment against our fellow humans as any before it!
In response, I believe that hypersexuality may be an especially excellent herald of the necessary new layers of understanding of the less-static and more-fluid gender identity experiences. Because by definition, in many if not most cases of hypersexuality, those individuals are intent on reaching right past the boundaries of whatever sexual limits they are finding.
As I will discuss in finer detail in the treatise, this hyperactive quality of personal sexual flexibility and fluidity is often one of the most essential elements of successful hypersexuality (as I understand it). And, I believe that it may also be one of it’s most powerfully progressive attributes.
Look for the post before the end of March!
