This post is awesome: The Pseudo Self
The beginning talks about how we build up different identities for different situations. We learn these behaviors so that we can survive and be accepted.
Hidden away in the center is our real self.
The author’s true self is female. And she describes discarding the male pseudo self.
I don’t think my true self and pseudo selves are binary like that. I’m pretty sure my real self is mostly female. But I’m starting to think of myself as mixed gender, like some people might consider themselves to be mixed race. This idea has been percolating in my head for a while. I think I’m almost ready to write a post about it and maybe try to illustrate it. But not today, ha ha.
