Quote by transperson in the NYTimes basically says he considers himself a man because he grew up playing with trucks and climbing trees, etc, 'everything a man does' (or thereabouts, I guess, plus/minus porn stashes and baseball).

It just sort of underlines (...again) my discomfort with the way people (cisgendered and otherwise) discuss gender, and my feeling that I don't want to be part of this conversation and yet am forced into it in part 'cause even if I say, 'I give up; I have no gender, I opt out, just shut up, all of you', I'd still be aligning myself with -someone-.
