The happiest moment

Someone wrote…

I am a girl with a fluid gender identity, and sometimes I dress pretty masculine. At the time this happened, I didn’t know much about gender or trans, I just did whatever made me feel comfortable.

I remember my first day at high school. My mom works there, so I drove with her. She got out of the car, and started talking to another teacher she hadn’t seen in a long time. I was standing with my back to them, picking up my bag.

“And this is your youngest, erm… Son?” the teacher asked as I turned around. I looked at her, and what met me was the most confused expression I have ever seen. It was like she was in some kind of a trance. After a while, she came to herself and realized that I had to be a girl, and apologized all over herself. I said it was fine, there was no need to apologize. I went inside with a smirk on my face. It was one of the happiest moments of my life.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
