Gender rules everything around us. From the way people treat us, to the clothes we wear, to the prices we pay for personal hygiene products, there's no denying that the gender binary—though it may be a construct—remains a deeply influential force in most of our lives.

1.) From deepwoods_cryptid:
Every once in awhile I’ll have women glance back at me if I walk behind them for a bit. I’ve even had women cross the street to avoid me walking behind them. I’m not even a big dude (5’3).
Otherwise, honestly, I haven’t noticed much difference other than people calling me “chief” or “buddy” more. Then again, I was pretty boyish even pre-transition.
