Several months back, I posted on here about how no one in my office commented on the fact that I wore a tie to work, I wasn’t sure if it was a negative sign or a positive one.

This last week I had to dress in business attire, so I chose to wear a tie. I heard nothing but compliments from coworkers. It was pretty nice to have affirmation from colleagues and my boss.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

I initially got scared that somehow he knew I was genderqueer, as I’m not out at work and don’t yet wish to be…but then I realized that GQ stands for Gentleman’s Quarterly magazine, and I was like…I’ll take that. hahah. So glad you also had a positive experience!

    On the GQ/GQ thing. A kind of joke/fantasy twitter exchange I thought of:

    Someone: GQ? Gentleman’s Quarterly?
    Me: Actually about 55%-ly most days …
