Wants and needs

Someone wrote…

I want both to feel at home in my skin and challenge the binary gender structure. I want to be a man, but not the man society sees.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Yeah, as I’ve been passing more lately, it’s interesting to see how women react to me. I’ve occasionally seen them react to me based on male privilege. It’s quite thought provoking and kind of frightening.

    This resonates a lot with me. That’s all I have to add.

    *standing and clapping* I don’t want to give up cooking and decorating and high heels just to prove to people I’m a “real” man. It’s ridiculous
