After 32 years, I’ve had it. It’s all on you…

After 32 years, I’ve had it. It’s all on you

What do you see that most people don’t ?

Yes, I’m short

Yes, I have soft features

Yes, my eyelashes are long

Yes, my Adam’s apple doesn’t protrude

Yes, my hands and feet are small

Yes, I sometimes change my hair color

Yes, I’ve been known to be flamboyant in my style

Yes, I’m Bisexual

Yes, I dressed up as a female witch for Halloween because I was hoping to win funniest. Being that I didn’t shave, so I sure wasn’t trying to look pretty.

But

What do you see that my family

my friends

my co-workers

don’t ??

I have gotten mad

I have threatened violence

I have yelled at the top of my lungs

but now I think this “Burden”

should be your cross to bear

not mine

I’m just going to ignore you

when on Halloween you asked me how comfortable I was in the dress I wore and If I wanted your hand me downs

When I voted yesterday and every guy I spoke to said “Mister” but you got angry when I ignored you when you Yelled “Ma’am” three times my way then sighed in frustration

You all are ignorant

I’m not transitioning

I’m not contemplating

I am just me.

A man that you think doesn’t exist

Or in your mind 

One short fat fucking ugly woman

*You refers to multiple people through the years since I was 17 who have all decided to use the wrong personal pronoun when addressing me*
