Someone wrote…

I finally decided to stop trying to find out who I am, and accept that I change constantly.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I’m not there yet, but that would explain a lot.

    It’s so hard though. I think our culture demands us to know who we are, to state it, wear it, be, be proud of it. I’m trying to get there too, but so far it’s not really working.

    @Hodge Podge – Reminds me of what Dorothy Parker said upon returning to New York from LA/Hollywood: she was asked: “How as it out there?” She replied: “There is no ‘there’ there.” There is no there for me to be there yet.

    I suppose, but getting out of ‘here’ is the first step1

    I was having the crappiest day ever and then I saw my own quote on the front page of Genderfork….. I feel so great right now….

    Congrats, too, Sir and/or Ms/Miss/Madam (depending on the moment) – you have good reason for feeling great. So many of us took more than a couple of decades to get half way to this realization.

    Congrats, sir. I’m quite proud to know you, especially since you’re so young; this was brilliant, and I really wish I’d had that self-insight at your age. :D (I know I’m not THAT much older than you, but it would have made high school much easier.)

    Every time I think I understand myself, I discover something wonderful and new that makes me rethink my identity.

    You’re always you and that don’t change, and you’re always changing, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
