kitten corner: human identity

one of the first things you learn as a kitten is that human identity is terribly complicated.

honestly, the rules are very hard to figure out!

men can be women and women men or all kinds of other genders i’m probably too young to understand, but if a white woman says she’s a black woman, everyone says that’s dishonest and she gets fired and if a black man acts like a white man, then apparently he’s an uncle? (and why is it always tom even if it wasn’t his name before?)

so, sorry if this is a silly question, but is this a real thing?

i can never tell when you guys are joking.

thank you.
