That’s true also.

Someone wrote…

The train conductor looked at my I.D. and said, “So, you’re a girl trying to look like a guy?”

I don’t want to explain my whole gender so I tell him that’s true. He laughs. “Funny, I thought you were a guy trying to look like a girl.”

I smile. “That’s true also.”

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    It is so satisfying to say just the right thing at just the right moment. I always long for moments like that!!!!

    i love this!

    after about a month of working at my new job, a couple co-workers approached me and sheepishly asked… “so.. um.. are you a F2M or M2F?” i was so giddy that my co-workers knew what that meant, and that i had hit that wonderfully ambiguous presentation, i totally didn’t mention the intersex or androgyny thing.

    so assuming you were shooting for androgyny, #win!
