Someone wrote…

Yesterday, for the first time, I went to a store to buy skirts without being ashamed of myself of the people around me. And if I was asked if those were for me, I would probably answer “yes, do you have any problem with that?”

Do you remember a moment when you stopped being ashamed about something?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Just wanted to say congratulations! That's a big positive step. It's important for us to own ourselves!

    I feel a little compelled by this, I relate in the way that I've woken up before class and chosen what to wear, planned out what to say if someone asked–if someone pointed this out or that, what i planned on saying and I feel like the same goes for your situation. congratulations and keep owning your identity :]
