Me is the only label I need

Someone wrote…

I wish that I could just be me – not my gender expression. I wish that I people would see me for me – not my clothes, my shoes, or hair. Why do I need to be labeled as anything other than myself? It has taken me so long to get here that I am happy being me – no matter what stares and dirty looks I get. “Me” is the only label I need.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
