One time, a group of guys attempted to come to school wearing skirts. They weren’t allowed in; still, I love them for trying.

I wish I could do something like that, but I’m afraid that people wouldn’t see me as a genderfucking queer boy: they might only see a girl in a skirt.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I completely understand this. Being biologically male, I always felt pressure to wear dresses and leggings and pretty bows in my hair so people will not see me as a boy, but always dressing like that turned out to not make me feel free at all. I felt afraid to just wear baseball caps, pants, short hair and t-shirts because they would see me as a guy instead of a male androgynous tranny boi.
    Now I have short hair and I wear whatever I want, whether it's pants, skirts, bows, baseball caps, or fishnet stockings.
    Go ahead and wear the skirt. You know who you are inside, and you know how you want to look. With chest bindings and a short haircut, I think anyone could pull as a queer boy in a skirt. :)

    This feels really profound to me, thank you.
