Empowered sense of self.

Tara wrote…

It’s ironic that one of the biggest things I’ve learned during my transition is how little gender factors into who I am as a person. That I feel empowered not because I am a boy or girl or even a boy becoming a girl, but because somewhere along the way I discovered who I was underneath all of the expectations. Instead of the pronouns, seek an empowered sense of self.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
