I have reflected on the treatment I get as a woman and it is very interesting to me as a subject. I ask myself to what degree it is because of the way I am presenting versus the way I am now interacting with others. In other words, is my freedom to express myself as a woman having more impact than people seeing and reacting to one?It is certain that I behave slightly differently as Joanna and I have given myself carte blanche to be more feminine without being a caricature. Once you remove the pressure to act deliberately male, the body and mind relax to interact as one pleases.
That also begs me asking how much of behaviour is learned versus being innate. Have I learned to imitate other women through watching them and copying their gestures and was my male persona also a social fabrication meant to allow me to fit in?
I doubt I will ever have the answers.
