"He" or "she", how to comprehend the concept of "queer" correctly, where does femininity and masculinity start and end, why we are so determined to define everything even if it is not possible? I was living with these questions for a few days only, and for them it is a stoical or furious day-to-day life holding (hopefully) their heads high.
