capitalism, gift giving, family, gender stuff, autism, part 3
This year, even my family, who struggle with my transition, got me things that somehow were across the many parts of me. A soft rainbow coloured unicorn toy (made from recycled plastics!) - because autistic adult still likes toys and soft things. The train game because I won’t shut up about trains. And a BATTERY DADDY (for sorting and testing batteries) which is so practical and butch and HAS THE WORD DADDY STAMPED ALL OVER IT.
capitalism, gift giving, gender stuff part 2
In past years, presenting as femme, my ‘personal brand’ (not my words) was very strong - I wore a lot of clothes from a particular shop because I liked the bright colours and the fabrics felt nice (I didn’t know I was autistic yet). I usually got socks from that shop for low-budget presents.
Even after I stopped presenting as femme, I’d be in flannel and grubby shorts, thanking people for their kind gift of short girly socks.
