The Burden

Someone wrote…

I just recently grew breasts on hormones, but I hate when people notice them, because I feel like it gives them license to put the burden of gender on me. I prefer it when they don’t know which burden to put on me, so they simply label me ‘weird’ and move on.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
