Analogic Simplicity

Someone wrote…

I just realized that if you put my gender identity on a linear spectrum, it would end up looking like a Box-and-Whisker plot. The simplicity of the analogy makes me absolutely giddy.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Wow! And I was just yesterday telling my partner how stupid it was that I had to learn about box and whisker plots in school because I haven’t used them since. This is a PERFECT analogy indeed!! Can’t wait to share this with him. :)
