Sometimes it’s interesting to find out the way the ol’ rumour mill works. Like today, for instance. One of the administrative assistants in another department brought me this very nice sleeveless sweater. She’s lost some weight, and she thought it would look good on me.
While I’m not exactly out as non-binary here on campus, a few of the faculty and staff know, and it appears that they’re talking about it. Not maliciously, I don’t think, as I really haven’t encountered any problems here on the campus itself. And I view a clothing gesture like this as very sweet.
But it does make me wonder how I’m viewed. As it would anyone, I would think.
