I'm going through the notes on my phone and deleting ones I don't need anymore. One mentions my aggressively misgendering giraffe. That's what I've decided to call it even though I initially called it something else, because the new name is more accurate and sounds cool. My cousin walked up while I was talking to someone else and held up this stuffed giraffe and said "well, I'm giving these to all the LITTLE GIRLS" and I was just like o_o confused and I took it and said "ok" because uh yeah I'm not going to call out even accidental misgendering with this family, I know it's completely pointless, and this was clearly intentional.
What was his goal? Was he hoping I would protest? Or did he just want to be like "i think you're a girl, neener neener"? I already knew what he thought, he didn't need to tell me. Did he think saying that would somehow force me to conform more than I do? WTF? I wish I could ask him. But asking him about it has the same problems as protesting when he first said it would have.
In the same note I mentioned that I think most people have kids because they never question the assumption that they are supposed to have kids. That's all.
