Let Everyone Be Themselves

Someone wrote…

I’ve been thinking a lot about what my gender is to me. I was born female and you know what? I don’t terribly mind it. I don’t feel like I need to be on the other side… But I also don’t feel the need to be on mine? I don’t think it’s my gender I feel weird about… I think it’s society’s view of my gender that bothers me. I never seem to fit what people think I should be like. I never fit anywhere… But I think I’ve finally come to accept that it’s not me. It’s the rest of them that need to calm down and just let everyone be themselves.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    This speaks to me. Never felt comfortable with the perceived expectations of society at large regarding my given gender. Found comfort lately in the realization that society is what we make it and can/does change as the individuals who compose it change.
