What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I totally get this. It happens to me for sexuality, too. My father used to tell me (entirely jokingly, but it still stuck) that “gay Chicanos are a waste of all that Mexican machismo.” It’s weird; I’m either a white bi andro or a Mexican straight grrly boy.
