That dividing point…

Someone wrote…

I wish for that moment in conversation not to come; that dividing point when the person I’m having a conversation with doubts the pronoun they just used for me. I wish they wouldn’t have to be uncomfortable just because I am ok with not being either. I wish that they could see gender as one giant holding tank instead of two separate boxes.

Have you dealt with this?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
