- feeling like a person
- May 27th, 2016
I was just thinking about how I used to think that only a ciswoman could know what it feels like to be a woman. However, now I'm not really sure that cis women feel like women. I had to ask myself -- do I feel like a woman? What part of my internal sense of self could I actually call the "woman" part? I can't identify any feelings that I've ever had that I could really call "feeling like a woman." I've been treated like a woman -- that treatment provokes emotions. I associate those feelings with being a woman because they are the result of others perceiving me as female and treating me a particular way in accordance with that facet of my identity. So, the question is this: is there such a feeling as "feeling like a woman"? Does such a thing exist?
