misgendered? :$

Postby Kidagakash » Sun Apr 16, 2017 9:32 pm

Was at easter dinner my mom put on today. To clarify what comes next, I am not out to anyone in my family right now. As I was introduced to one of her friends as "one of her sons" he made what I think was supposed to be a joke by saying "Oh, I wasn't sure if they were one of the daughters" I could only think, wow, if I could reply to that what would I even say...

I had an awkward situation kind of like this where my friend introduced me to a new friend as my True Self(tm), while I was presenting as my Old Self. Boy did I have to change gears fast! Love him for putting me on the spot. I never got caught flat-footed again.

LOL after 56 years of marriage my wife admitted that her father offered to give her the cash so she could take off instead of the wedding. He said that her prospective husband probably sits down to pea.
Well I didn't but perhaps he saw more than my bride (and I) did.
