I just remembered when I went into sophomore year I started expressing my genderfluidity and asked to be called Kal instead of Kali and my English teacher asked if I was a boy or a girl and I said, “I don’t have a preference” and she said “You can only choose one. You are a girl or a boy. If you have a female body you are a girl. So are you a girl or a boy?”
And this guy on the football stood up and said, “Who are you to tell her what he is? I mean, if she wants to be a boy that’s fine, if he wants to be a girl, that’s fine to. I personally think he should be allowed to express her gender however he wants, and she shouldn’t get rude comments from his teachers.”
And the teacher looked so confused that she had to take a five minute break and we all got to go to the snack machines.
