If I can't beat 'em...

I'm going to put my 'gender' as male now. Going to 'live a man' but I am not going to change my clothes, not that I wear skirts much anyway. I will still style my hair and wear makeup because I will not be defined.

So I'm going to tell me DH and children tonight. I'm not sure if DH will accept that he is now gay.

Any one want to out their inner man and join me on my journey?

I have very short hair and work in IT. I must be a man already.

When do I get my pay rise?

FloatingCamel Mon 04-Sep-17 13:33:36

Your DH should be grateful for the opportunity to show everyone how open minded and progressive he is tbh.

If we identify as men, do we get to join the Freemasons? I could do with a get out of jail free card.

When do I get to explain things very Slowly and ask stupid questions that are really just ways to tell everyone how great I am?

I'm on a course this week, and I'm already working out how to murder mr fantastic.

I have short hair and several chainsaws, and like Excel. I've been a 'man' since the age of around 7.

I like to sit with my legs as far apart as possible and also have the beginnings of a moustache. I must be a boy/man...

Twelvety Mon 04-Sep-17 13:42:31

MrsMoasty I already have a full moustache! <boasts> Definitely a man. Do you think if we got enough women to do this people might actually start to think?

ruthsmumkath Mon 04-Sep-17 13:43:40

I've hairy legs and a blunt razor - I'm in!

Lolly49 Mon 04-Sep-17 13:48:40

I ve just cleared the pond pump put the bin's back in the shed also have the start of a moustache.I ve been in the wrong body for years.

i do wonder what would happen if we all applied to men's clubs and insisted on accessing the clubs that male mps and male aristocrats use and exclusive golf clubs etc and really put this into their space - how long it would take before we suddenly heard about a change in the law regarding gender.

i'm betting not long.

I write scientific software and hate housework, so I must qualify. I've got long hair but so do some of my 'assigned as male at birth' colleagues.

For the first time ever, when I registered for the bbc recently I put gender as 'prefer not to say' .... my 'gender' is completely and absolutely irrelevant. I might have said female if they'd asked for my sex although again, it would have been irrelevant in that context.

I am in the process of changing every cell in my body from xx to xy. It's gonna be tough, there are 10 trillion of the fuckers.

ErrolTheDragon Mon 04-Sep-17 14:05:20

Yoko - oh dear, you're not one of those people hung up on biology are you?hmm look, you just need to assert your manhood, your sense of entitlement will surely follow.

BertrandRussell Mon 04-Sep-17 14:08:32

I wish I still had periods. My man periods would have been awesome!

And I wold have kicked some serious butt when I was tanked up on those man period hormones.

NotTheDuchessOfCambridge Mon 04-Sep-17 14:12:35

I ride a motorbike and like action movies....what else do I need to join the man gang? My hair is long but I'll just put it in the same old bun I've been doing for years and rename it......a man bun!

terrylene Mon 04-Sep-17 14:12:49

I am ahead of the curve here. grin I was telling DH I was a man when I first knew him 30 something years ago................

Unfortunately I had babies and realised that my career was nothing better than the replaceable photocopier they treated me as. Then I realised I was always going to be a woman sad

terrylene Mon 04-Sep-17 14:14:13

Yoko The number of cells in your body decreases year by year so you have time on your side wink

AssignedPerfectAtBirth Mon 04-Sep-17 14:14:25

Yoko
That's so bigoted. And science has moved on. You are woefully out of date, I'm so embarrassed for you.

whoputthecatout Mon 04-Sep-17 14:16:07

just think of all the mansplaining you'll be able to do OP.

YokoReturns Mon 04-Sep-17 14:18:34

errol wait, what... you mean all the men will let me into their club ^as I am?^I need to acquire some male entitlement quick-smart. I'll be needing those first few XY cells I managed to reprogramme...

terrylene Mon 04-Sep-17 14:18:46

Betrand you don't need to suffer - there are online websites that will give you the hormones to give you those man periods (you can get big oestrogen patches, but unfortunately not the progestogen, so you will find they are probably a bit erratic)

YetAnotherSpartacus Mon 04-Sep-17 14:20:26

I'd kind of be in ... but secretly I've always seen men as somewhat inferior. I'd feel like I was slumming it.

Ereshkigal Mon 04-Sep-17 14:24:47

Yet grin

busyboysmum Mon 04-Sep-17 14:24:54

Yes... what would be the advantages for me? Can't think of anything other than better pay.

I certainly don't want to have to use the disgusting mens loos! Even my husband hates using them.
