As a child, I saw that girls were only allowed to like dolls and the color pink. A quick, expectant glance from my mom looked back at me from the rearview mirror. A stamp that comes with its own keychain, so that you can conveniently stamp things on the go… you know, in case you need to do that.

Even my female friends relegated me to the role of Ken. Thanks for the effort, really. They played sports and read books and no one thought it was strange.

As we drove up to the window, I would involuntarily scrunch down into my seat while the I m a boy and want handed my mom the Happy Meal. Although I said I wanted to be a boy, I was embarrassed when someone thought I was one.
And I want the goddamn boy toy. It can be a relative, a teacher, a clergy person or anyone with whom you feel you can have an open and non-judgmental conversation.
