Clothes and Gender and Anxiety

I am going to a fantastical festival tomorrow that celebrates whimsy and magic. I want to wear my long blue wig and sparkly gold makeup and a purple fairy skirt. Normally I wear my natural hair back and under a hat and minimal makeup and pants. Even then I am mistaken for a women. It bothers me to be seen as female, not because I have anything against women, but because it is not simply who I am. I know tomorrow I will be misgendered and that stresses me out. It is incredibly frustrating to ne that clothes equal gender in our society. I have stubble and a deep voice but long hair and makeup make me a woman somehow. Add a skirt and minds are blown. People argue with me when I correct them or just ignore me. For example,
"How are you, ma'am?"
"I am fine, but I am a sir"
"If you're dressed like that, you clearly want to be a woman" or even "no you're not"

I know it seems petty, but it really bothers me. I'm sorry I just have to vent…


Everyday is cheat day, but today is extra cheat day.
