Brilliant.

“Describe an outfit you’ve worn that expressed the complexity of your gender.”

Someone wrote…

I generally wear “men’s” clothes, no shoes and have a shaved head. I don’t mind which third person pronouns people use for me, and I don’t always think the same about my gender. Today I had an exam, and when I needed the toilet and I was escorted out of the room, my escort pointed down the hall, “the ladies’ is the second door on the right (pause) or the men’s is the first door.” Brilliant.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Be nice. Judgmental comments will be quietly deleted and blacklisted. There's plenty of room for those elsewhere on the web.
