Societal Expectations

Someone wrote…

I am tired of labels. This desire to “simplify” things by putting people in specific categories just over complicates things instead.

I like wearing masculine clothes and having short hair. Once in a while I like wearing make-up and more feminine shirts. I am attracted to personality; it will always be the deciding factor.

It doesn’t confuse me, societal expectations confuse me. This need to be defined shouldn’t be necessary in order to feel community.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Yer speaking my language! Humans like to categorize and compartmentalize and label everything and everyone. The more people say “screw the labels!” and live as their authentic selves, eventually societal gender rules will become less rigid and less important.
