My Clothing Journey

[Note – what I describe of myself should not be taken as prescriptive. It does not seek to defend femininity as necessarily being an aspect of having a female gender as I am aware that not all who have a female gender have any necessary connection to femininity as such. Think of what is usually […]

What so significant about her calling me “Stephie,” that’s right “Stephie.” Well this woman is pretty much a Christian fundamentalist. Believes Genesis to be […]
