Outpatient

Someone wrote…

Once when I was at the outpatient care facility, laying on the bed, two curious little girls peeked over to where I was. Their mother told them to stop doing so but one of the girls replied “mom, is that a girl or a boy?” I smiled. The girls looked again, trying to figure it out. After the third or fourth time, they settled it. “That’s a boy, mom” they finally said & I just couldn’t help but smile. I’m female by sex but an androgynous agendered boi. Not that I don’t like female pronouns, I’m just more comfortable with gender neutral & masculine ones.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
