Are you a boy or a girl?


This is a terribly sad and tragic thing. My heart goes out to everyone who is lost in all this confusion….

“Are you a boy or a girl?” my mom whispers into the phone, afraid her roommate might hear her question.

“A girl,” I say.

“You ARE?” she asks, as if she can’t believe it, as if it’s deeply upsetting for her.

“Yes.”

“How long have you been a girl?”

“I’ve always been a girl, Mom.”

“I never knew all this time that you were a girl,” she says, a note of shock in her voice. “Does it bother you to be a girl?”

“No, Mom.”

“Does everyone else in the family know you’re a girl?”

“Yes.”

“No one ever told me.”

I don’t know what to say to that.

“Do you look like a girl?” she asks.

“I guess so.”

“Do you have long hair?”

“No, I have short hair.”

“Do you dress like a girl?”

“Umm … yes.”

“Do you get your period and that kind of stuff?”

“Yes.”

    When I was about 9 years old, a group of younger boys asked me if I was a boy or girl. I thought they were stupid and I couldn’t think why me wearing baggy shorts and T-shirt, a backwards baseball hat, and playing with boys would then have people confused about my gender. It seems I was the stupid, ill informed one. Thanks for posting this! Interesting to think about.

    Gender confusion is heartbreaking; especially when children are swept away into this torment. God doesn’t mistakenly create us into the wrong body.
