All the secrets of human consciousness may be embedded somewhere in the squishy brains nestled in our skulls. This drive to find out what’s hidden in our mental anatomy has resulted in medical specimen collections of brains all over the world. The Wilder Brain Collection in Ithaca, New York, has around 70 brains; the Cushing Brain Collection in New Haven, Connecticut, has around 550. But this is nothing compared to the around 3,300 brains kept at the Brain Museum in Lima.

Although there are many English-language resources and glossaries about transgender, genderqueer, and non-binary terms, there are not as many in other languages. I have begun a few pages at the Non-Binary Wiki, which anyone can edit, to list terms and their meanings in a few languages:
Glossary of Chinese gender and sex terminology
Glossary of Japanese gender and sex terminology
Glossary of Korean gender and sex terminology
Glossary of Russian gender and sex terminology
Glossary of Spanish gender and sex terminology
More will be added - these were created as just a start to this project and anyone is welcome to create further language pages or edit the ones that already exist to add new terms, citations of sources, or correct any errors. I am focusing on collecting terms related to non-binary gender identity, although general gender and sex terms can also be added to these glossaries. I am very excited about this project!

Besides how tight these pants are there is very little “Faintly” in my “Masculine” right now. (scratch that boys wear tight jeans too) How do you feel about a little clown meets 90’s pimp? This is a lot of blue huh?
Fashion has to have a “peacock” affect sometimes. That ability to just have the “look at me! look at me” affect on the rest of the world. I don’t think getting dressed is fun if it’s not “FUN” sometimes. Personal style has to sometimes be about showing that side of yourself completely literally, meaning your emotion of the moment and exactly how you are feeling is translated into your outfit.
