After much reading, reflection, and discussion, I have concluded the following. Being a man is difficult. Being a woman is really difficult. Being non-binary is really really difficult.
With this in mind, I think people of all genders should follow these three simple steps (note the order):
- Acknowledge that being the gender you are is hard.
- Give yourself lots of sympathy 🙂
- Listen to the genders who have it even harder. And believe them.
