I actually did this one a few months ago for EF, but I thought I’d repost it on my site proper. This was a really difficult comic for me to work out! It’s always a little dicey to use metaphors to discuss identity and experience, but metaphor is also an important tool to bridge communication gaps. There is no perfect metaphor for gender, because, well, there’s nothing like gender but gender. But I think the idea of having new options and possibilities open to you that you never could have thought of before, that’s a very human experience that we can all relate to.
