When I was about four, my Granddaddy Lake told me that if I kissed my elbow, I’d turn into a girl. I walked around for weeks trying to do this. I didn’t particular want to be a girl, I just wanted to know what it felt like. Mind you, he hadn’t told me I could change back. I’d made that assumption all on my own.
So was my grandfather an early proponent of transgender awareness, or a just a troll?
