First day of summer school means new kids. And so it is that I have discovered that just as I have grown utterly weary of repeatedly explaining my own complicated gender to strangers...now it falls to me to repeatedly explain my child's complicated gender to strangers.

(While I'm here, a small note that there was evidence this morning that a lot of it is about differentiation from her sister.)


A lot of my gender identity as a small child was about differentiation from my brothers. I was a girl and all three of them were boys, so I was different without even trying, but I felt outnumbered, so I was the girliest girl ever to counteract that.
