So after I wrote this first piece and showed it to a few people, they said to me, “Well, what WAS it?”
Not wishing to disappoint, I here present to you What It Was. In all its truthful glory…
Really. I understand the need for people to feel safe in public toilets. I do. But they are a place where I am made to feel like my body and my presentation are inadequate. I know that pretty much all women are made to feel like that by society pretty much all the time, but it’s not, for the most part, in terms of whether or not you’re actually a woman at all. And as a cis woman I know I have a whole bunch of privileges in spite of being misgendered all the time. But I wanted to express that it makes me angrysad.

I’m currently working on a long project with my mum, Louise, about her experiences of having Parkinson’s Disease.
Here’s a little sneak peek of some of the draft pages!
