Some assembly required.

I wasn’t born a girl. I was born a boy with some assembly required.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I was born the grandchild my grandmother always wanted but she died before I was two.
    I was born a complication in my parents’ lives
    that they never expected.
    I was born a disappointment and a headache for my siblings who had to mind me.
    I spent half a century being what other people wanted
    This next half century I’m going to be me.
    I guess I required a lot more than some assembly
    I required several re-writes and considerable reinvention.
