another project WORLDVIEW worldview theme                 copyright 2019              Home         


I assert personal autonomy, flaunt societal convention, and protect my sense of identity / authenticity as follows: I publicly acknowledge one or more of the following: 1) my sexual orientation deviates from what has traditionally been socially (and in some cases, legally!) acceptable—typically meaning… I'm homosexual,  2) my gender identity (female or male) does not correlate with the sex assigned to me at birth,  3) you should think of me as neither male nor female but rather of indeterminate gender.      

Note: With version 4.0, a theme with this name is new to the Project Worldview theme structure in March, 2019. In fact it represents 
a reworking of what was formerly a theme called "Self Reliant Nonconformity" with the same theme number in version 3.0 structure.
As such this page may be "under construction" for quite awhile.
