Re: Thank you!

>> Cisgender folks don't think about how ubiquitous gender-marking is <<

Not only that, but personal (people are gender-marked, often inaccurately, by a non-consensual opinion at their birth) and durable (changing a gender marker is difficult and, especially for non-normative genders, alienating). I'm finding that one of the most wearing things for me is coming up with a presentation that is close enough to my identification of the moment to not cause me emotional distress. Insufficient options and low tolerance by others for variation and errors make this quite challenging. I would absolutely love to have better choices.
