Something I Hate:

Someone wrote…

I hate that people care more about the fact that I have a vagina and what I do with it over what I think and have to say.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    That’s true. Today, somebody told me “You should assume being a women”.
    Sometimes I feel very tired.

    I know this blog is trans*-focused, but what you’ve described here is something that everyone with a vagina has experienced, no matter how cis.

    I’d go so far as to say it’s something that everyone with genitals has experienced.

    Know how you feel.

    It’s exhausting.

    Some days I hate myself for being born female.

    …and welcome to being thrown into societies category of “female.”

    blame the patriarchy.
