The Uniform of Gender

Gender is like a uniform you can’t take off.

Imagine you’re walking down the street and you see a man wearing a dress shirt tucked into black dress pants, a belt with a holster, a badge, and emblems that read “Police” stitched into the shoulders of his shirt. He has a headset in his left ear and is surrounded by about a dozen other men and women with identical outfits. He makes eye contact with you, says “Move over there,” and gestures to the left. Would you move? Chances are that you would. You’d probably move first and assess the situation later.
