Louise Carole Sumrell, this is perfection. Beautifully explained. Spot on. Love that you referenced the Kinsey scale. (Many straight people don’t know it exists). Would you be interested in copy & pasting it (exactly as is) into a new story, that can be published on Gender From The Trenches? I’ll be happy to add images and format, and talk you through any “how to’s” if needed — like “how to submit to a publication.” This deserves a bigger audience than just the comments section, in my opinion. However, totally understand if you’re not interested, no worries at all! Just had to ask. Thank you for this brilliant response. 💖
