Wanted to hug him.

Bri wrote…

A very androgynous bus driver called me “sir” today. It made my stomach jump. I was so happy I wanted to hug him. But instead I just smiled (hugely at that) and walked to my seat. I’m not sure if he just knew I was leaning towards the more masculine side or really thought I was a boy… but either way I loved it.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
