Hello Kitty lunchbox.

Someone wrote…

I love to paint my toenails. Most people think of me as a man. A lot of the time, I do too, because that’s just simpler, but the reality of it is certainly more complicated.

I also have a Hello Kitty lunchbox. It is pink. I bring it to work every day.

How do yousubvert gender norms on a day-to-day basis?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I have a massive, chunky metal watch that looks like an android, and I proudly wear it everywhere. It was surely made for men, but as a genderqueer transwoman I frankly don’t have a problem with that. :3 I like the thing, and it likes me, so all’s well as far as I’m concerned.

    I swear, hard and loud. I do it everytime is needed. and when I need to pretend I’m a lady (i.e. in front of kids, since I’m a teacher.) I swear …in French.

    This, in my humble opinion, is the best quote ever. I would like to print it out and put it on my fridge.

    I like wearing some very conflicting things sometimes. And sometimes I’ll set out to present male, and just as I walk out the door realise that my nails are still painted teal, green, and lavender. I did that the other day, I just had to laugh and go for it. I spent a lot of girly-effort a few days before, painting them — they were still pretty, I wasn’t going to ruin them before their time.
