Are You Kidding Me?
As I told you a few weeks ago my brother is transitioning to become a male.
When he was home a few weeks ago something outrageous happened.
My brother went to the local gas station/convenience store to fill up the car.
While he was inside the store he saw the lady who used to cut our hair all the time when we were little “girls.”
My “sister” had beautiful long blonde hair when “she” was little. And I was stuck with crappy brown hair that was short, never did anything special, and most times worn with a crazy perm. Hey, it was the 80s.
Anyway, the lady saw my brother and called him BRANDY.
That’s my name!
And she kept referring to my brother as she was talking to ME and using FEMALE pronouns.
Yes, my brother and I do have similar facial features.
And yes, not a lot of people in our hometown know about my brother’s transition.
Do I LOOK like a MAN?
Do I TALK like a MAN?
Do I LOOK like I have FACIAL HAIR?
(Yes, I do admit I have some facial hair, but my Nair takes care of that!)
Well, at least my family thought it was funny.
But not me.
OK, it was a wee bit funny.
