I’ve been quite clear about how much I dislike being thought of as transgender. It’s an objective truth I can’t deny, but I hate what society makes it mean. It’s a label I wish I could shed, but I can’t. As much as we might all be men or women or non binary without any note of our birth assignment, we are also trans or cis or non conforming. We need the label because without it, nobody knows how to help us.
