Thank you.

Someone wrote…

My mom died five years ago and I now see how gender-neutral she was. Thank you for giving me a neutral name, and for understanding my choices of clothing and understanding my dislike of third-person pronouns. I see now how much you really knew about doing things that aren’t in the male/female binary.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    May I ask what your name is?

    That moved me. Not only did you have a loving, accepting mother, but also you acknowledged her for open-mindedness, acceptance and broad horizons. I feel sorry that she died… and wish that humanity had more people like her. The world would be a better place with them.

    This is so touching. I’m sorry about your mother.
