If you haven't watched @hannah_gadsby 's Netflix special, I highly recommend you do. I've never quite seen someone perfectly execute rising tension, defusing it with humour, then leaving on such a powerful, thought provoking message at the end. I wanted it to go on for another hour.
I wanted to hug her, cry with her, salute her, and shout from the rooftops throughout her set. The one quote that honesty, as a parent of a boy and two girls, I had to internalize was this one, I just had to make it into an image.
Along with this, the fact that we apologize when we misgender someone so profusely, as if it is a grave sin to merely suggest someone might be ANOTHER TYPE OF HUMAN. Why are we so offended when someone mistakes us for another gender? Especially a man being mistaken for a woman - the horror!! It's almost like we value men higher than women and how dare we suggest a man has features that resemble the "lesser" sex.
Anyway. I am left feeling educated, comforted by the laughter, emotional for her story, and emboldened by her message. We must do better. ✊
