on feeling greedy

Sometimes, yes, I do feel greedy asking the world to restructure their views and treatment of gender to fit me. But then I remember the fundamental flaw in that argument: I’m not asking people to restructure how they treat gender to fit me, I’m asking people to restructure how they treat gender to fit everyone. What’s the point of wearing this gender-binary coat that fits some people roughly, some people barely, and others not at all? What do we gain from it?

What are you thinking about gender right now?
