This has been an odd week. A friend of mine asked me if there is something inherent in the word “transgender” that makes people automatically think of my gender assigned at birth. I think that for me, that the word transgender is just referring to facial change from my gender assigned to me at birth to my true male gender. I think my friend was just trying to figure out why law school people keep misgendering me. I still don’t know exactly. I’ll have to think some more on it.
I did have the awkward experience of a law school friend misgendering me and then crying because she did it. I still don’t know exactly what to think about it. I guess in a weird way, at least someone understood that misgendering me really does hurt. I just wish it would stop.
Well I plan on voting Tuesday morning. I hope I don’t have any problems with the poll workers. I think I look enough like my license. Wish me luck. And if you couldn’t already tell, I am enthusiastically with her. Go vote!
All the best,
