    If I met you, I wouldn’t ask “are you a boy or a girl?”

    I’d ask “Can I have your phone number?”

    Just curious how old you are or were when you posted this…you seem well beyond your years. I’m just starting to deal with this question and it’s really tricky to keep up confidence when people are so demeaning when asking this question. I’m having a hard time at work where kids as young as 5 ask or sometimes don’t ask and are just afraid of me….anyway, thanks.

    I (Kristie) think you’re hot as hell!! And you raised some good points. Yeah, gender, basically made up by society, it’s easy to force ppl into roles w/things like gender bc until recently it wasn’t something you could disbute. Maybe your mom is in denial, who’s to say, I know my mom does that too. Has she ever been exposed to this kind of stuff? It’s hard to see somethig that’s staring you in the face if you don’t know how to look at it.

    I have gotten that question since I was ten or so, when I first decided to cut my hair short. I’ve never worn make-up, I feel weird showing off my tits, and sometimes I feel like a transvestite when I wear feminine clothing.

    A young boy asked me the Question once, and I replied, “Well, what do you think?” He said, “A boy. You look like my grandma.” Even he was blending genders there. He might turn out all right.

    I love dressing in male clothing. I have short hair, and I used to wear earrings and tight tops to compensate. I don’t feel like I have to do that now, though, because I’m not hiding anything. Sometimes I feel male, sometimes I feel female. I identify as a queergenderqueer, ha. I am emotionally attracted to women but sexually attracted to anyone.
