Recommendation: Turns Out He’s A Lady

Rickard recommends…

Person with short brown hair sitting on a rock in a semi-desert, in a checked shirt, white-framed sunglasses, a kerchief and shorts, playing ukulele.

A friend of mine started this fantastic blog to document the awkward and sometimes hilarious encounters that she’s had with people who think she’s a boy.

In her own words, “this is: a blog dedicated to all the times I’m mistaken for a 15 year-old boy, or a man, or a dude, or a boychildmandude. And this is blog material because I’m really a woman in my late twenties who happens to just look far better in clothing made for men. The confusion generated by my aesthetic choices creates really awkward situations that I’ve finally come to accept as part of my life and totally worth remembering. Forever. Or at least as long as the Internet survives.”

The blog is seeking guest posts! Anyone who has had an interesting / funny / poignant story about gender confusion, expression, identity, androgyny… all are welcome on “Turns Out He’s A Lady.”
