Today, I was going to work in my car business. I expected to lie under cars and generally be a mess, and I was way behind schedule. So, I put on zero make-up.
I ended up at an oil change place in a very small town in rural Nevada, and even so I was treated super-nicely. The gentleman offered to help carry something for me, referred to me with the female pronoun, etc. It was SO nice … especially since this happened with me wearing no make-up and not particularly feminine clothing, and no cleavage.
I know that I don’t look 100% female so in case he had any doubts, I told him I’m a strange mix of male and female, but basically female, and that he had handled it perfectly, and I thanked him for that.
I like being a girl anyway, but it’s nice when the rest of the planet catches on too.
