rather extraordinary company

Someone wrote…

I’ve always told myself ‘I don’t care’ and ‘I don’t give a shit.’ It was as much a defense against the ‘I-want-to-be-called-zem’ crowd, as it was against ‘man or woman or DEATH” crowd. But really, I was never in that situation where it was personal or really mattered.

A while ago I started seeing a friend who is pretty androgynous (or transfolk, genderqueer, or whatever it’s called by whomever this week). That first night, when they kissed me, everything changed.

Gender-wise, I don’t one a shit one way or the other. People are just people. Only now I get a chance to not give a shit with some rather extraordinary company.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
