Sweetheart

Someone wrote…

There has been only one place I have not come out. It is an educational environment where I teach occasionally.

It is hard to say why I have not come out in this place. I have certainly given a lot of excuses. My sweetheart finally convinced me that I should give it a go, that nobody was going to judge me, that many were going to love it, that I would be happy. So I did… Well, almost.

I am a very femme MAAB — think lots of pink, miniskirts, tights and pretty dresses — I’m not quite in dresses yet at this place, but lots of tunics, leggings, nail varnish and earrings (well I always had those, even in this place), ballet flats, my signature Flower by Kenzo and my tiny, corseted waist. Nobody has said a word, except to compliment me.

My sweetheart was right, and I am free…

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Wow that is brilliant; I’m thinking of getting into teaching myself and am concerned that being a male bodied bigendered individual it could be difficult for me to express my girl side but this gives me hope
