Haha, it does work like that. Civic broke down in front of a camp of homeless people. Once I got out and pushed, then like 3 people came to help.

By wanting to be the other gender, you're just admitting that gender stereotypes are true for you.

I've always held that belief. That's why I think the divide between "gender" and "sex" was a subversion of norms. It was an excuse to blur the lines of sex. There's nothing wrong with liking different gendered topics or even presenting yourself as a man or a woman, but it doesn't mean you are. Its a part of you, no matter what you believe or deny. Same with your height, age, race, ect. I have plenty of problems with the sun as a ginger, but it doesn't mean I won't get burned going outside if I identified as black.

It feels like an emperor's new clothes situation on a societal level.
