I’ve received many F’s in my life.
My documents are riddled with F’s.
F this, F that.
I don’t want these F’s.
I deserve something better.
I don’t mean F as in Fail, although, it does feel like a failure to me.
No, I was assigned female at birth.
My passport says ‘F’, my driver’s license says ‘F’, my health card says ‘F’, my birth certificate says ‘F’.
F is for female.
F is a forced assignment that does not fit.
F is fixed on these documents.
F is false.
I want an X.
X is undefined.
X is non-binary.
X is queer.
X is inclusive.
X is genderless.
X is an option that feels like it fits.
X is the first letter of my pronouns.
X is a subversion of systemically entrenched oppression.
