The rest of the menu.

Someone wrote…

For me, choosing a gender pronoun is not like choosing whether I want the soup or sandwich. I want the soup, the sandwich, and the coleslaw too. And what’s on the rest of the menu?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I know just how you feel. Pronouns are so accusatory.

    And I have known the eyes already, known them all
    The eyes that fix you in a formulated phrase,
    And when I am formulated, sprawling on a pin,
    When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall,
    Then how should I begin
    To spit out all the butt-ends of my days and ways?
    And how should I presume?
