No big deal

Someone wrote…

I like when people “come out” as genderqueer as if it’s no big deal. I like people who think it’s no big deal. Because it really is no big deal. Some kid “came out” to me today (though it was more a passing statement in conversation than it was “coming out”), and she reminded me that I probably don’t need to think it’s such a big deal.

I often get wrapped up in the advocacy and labels and dysphoria, and forget that it’s no big deal to be who or what I am.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
