Gender-Free Shopping

I went to a gender-free store in New York. It was unusual not to see a clothing store separated into a men’s side and a women’s side. All the clothes were of mixed styles and anyone could buy them. Sure, there were things that were more masculine and things that were more feminine, but that’s the point of gender fluidity. People can express their identity without judgement or labels and wear whatever clothing they want. I am comfortable with my male identity – except I don’t really identify culturally with most males due to my lack of interest in sports, cars, and other macho pursuits. I also have a different opinion of women than most men, judging by the overwhelming number of predators and harassers that have been revealed in the past year. I considered a shirt with more of an advocacy message, but I’m not sure I would wear it. I bought a blue t-shirt with the name of the store on it instead.
