Reading

Moments when I realize how incredibly lucky I am to “read” heterosexual, white, female, American, politically moderate and nose-down normal.

It doesn’t matter that none of these things are necessarily 100% true of me (or true at all), but it’s so nice to be read that way.  I don’t have to answer questions or be harassed.  I don’t have to defend myself.  I don’t have to pretend to be anything else.  People just assume these things are true about me, so assume they don’t need to “fix” me or let me know why I’m so wrong.
