Random acts of gender confusion.

Billie wrote…

At some point in my teenage years, I started snatching my dad’s shirts and wearing them. Then I started taking his fedora and ties. So one day I compiled all this into one outfit and went to school, breasts bound, to find girls dressed like guys and guys like girls. It was “Gender Bender” day. It only slightly dampened how excited I was to wear exactly what I wanted for once, and mostly made me happy that I go to a school that encourages random acts of gender confusion.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    My school usually has a "Dress Like Someone Else Day" during Spirit Week, which often leads to gender-bending. All schools should have events like this – they're so much fun!
