Taken back everything.

Someone wrote…

I wish I could do my normal cross-dressing stunts without everyone immediately thinking I’ve taken back everything I ever said about my own gender identity.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    my first thought? do it anyway. some days i flow right on into my babybutch mode, and some days i feel more femme. your identity is not solely tied to what you wear. show that you do not have to be locked into a set gender performance and that leaving the realm of expectations does not mean you have changed who you are.

    to a similar effect, i am a very spooky person. i like death and destruction and blood and all manner of dark things. however, i also adore stuffed animals and i love to interact with little kids. this makes me no less and no more of a spooky person. it just means that there is more to me than a two-dimensional label.

    granted, it is daunting. but if you just go for it and take the flak as it comes, you will almost certainly feel better about yourself.

    it’s telling of how well people accept who you say you are. they just need their rumps kicked, show ’em how it’s done. C;
