Because I’ve been struggling with gender/sex/sexuality all my life and intend to continue to struggle. All the while being fabulous.
Because I am in solidarity with anyone else who is having connected struggles. Which is to say almost anyone.
Because I’ve wanted to write since I read the first Little House on the Prairie book.
Because a few days ago, when I was verbally chewing on some recent thoughts on how oh my goodness I like girls so much, one of my best friends mentioned the term “hard femme” and it rang a bell for me.
