Yeah, I still love the term lady and will continue to use it, despite no longer identifying as the gender that term traditionally belongs to. Because I want to. And that’s really what it comes down to.
I’ve halfway joked that my gender should be “Because I Want To”. I dress in jeans almost every day because I want to. I wear dresses on fancy occasions, because I want to. I take naked pictures and share them with friends. Naked pictures showing a body that looks traditionally female. Because I want to. I’ve got a number of piercings. Because I wanted to. I crave the day I have the money to get a tailored suit. Because I want one.
I don’t have any issues with being read as female. But that’s only because I am in little danger from being so.
I love my men. I would hate to see them hurt. But the world does not look kindly on men with feminine sides. So I have privilege in this regard – I can express that without being dissed or looked down upon. So booo…
Don’t know where else I was going with this, so I’ll stop there.
