“Describe an outfit you’ve worn that expressed the complexity of your gender.”
When I shaved my head, I didn’t do it to be rebellious. I did it because it was the first time in my life I felt free. It makes me feel so sad when people assume I am trying to make a political statement and that is therefore okay to insult me. I disrupted my small town with a razor. But I wish that it had been accepted. I don’t play with gender to disrupt. I just can’t fit into a genderbox.
The outfit I’ve worn that expresses the complexity of my gender is a shaved head and no clothes. Just me. Raw.
What’s your experience?
