Anyone got any thoughts on explaining to my 14-year-old, probably-cis sister what gender policing is and why it's not fucking cool? Because unless my parents have gotten much, much better about this stuff in the past four years without my notice, we're talking about someone completely trans-ignorant, and who I'm not comfortable outing myself to when she inevitably asks why I care or tells me "that's just weird." At the same time, I'm pretty sure that keeping my mouth shut around her and her friends is stressing me out as much as trying to explain it to her would.

In other news, cross your fingers for me, I need a job.

Terrible puns aside, you could maybe say that not everyone falls into specific gender stereotypes? I mean, I'm female, but I'm probably more androgynous as far as stereotypical "feminine" behavior is concerned.
