Get It Right

Someone wrote…

Years ago it would bother me when I read as male while trying to present as female. Now I get frustrated when I pass as cisfemale while trying to present femme drag. Why does it sometimes feel so important to be read “correctly”?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Because, fortunately or not, our existence depends on the others. We only exist on the other, never by ourselves. (if you want to know more about this, read Hegel)

    I believe that we all want to be seen as we are, not as others define us. When another defines us, we feel invisible.
