Gawking, Gaping, Staring

In this personal narrative, Clare explores multiple facets of the self and questions why gender is still discussed as a binary. She acknowledges the tortured lives that many have lived as a result of their gender ambiguity and declares that all those who "gawk," "gape," and "stare" at those who are different never get it right.
