I decided to write a paper on breaking gender norms. To the left is how I often dress. I definitely follow a pretty feminine style most of the time. To the right is how I dressed last night.
It’s astounding the number of dirty looks, whispers, and snickers I received from simply looking and acting more masculine and walking into the dining hall at my university. Some people didn’t even acknowledge me when I said hi. 
It’s sad to be living in a world where such harsh judgements are passed simply by the way you dress and carry yourself.
