Gender Relationships

Someone wrote…

I’m tired of people assuming I identify as a demigender. I’m in my mid-30s, present as female (my birth sex), and I make no claims to the sort of oppression that binary trans people/visibly gender non-conforming people face – I have it easy by comparison. I’m not trying to co-opt that struggle. But that being said, I mentor trans kids, have always been trans inclusive, and have spent my whole life trying to find a way to more easily describe my complicated relationship to my gender. Why do people have to diminish that?

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
