Many years ago out in sainsburys with my pre school twins and decide to get tea in the cafe. A few places in behind us in the queue is a large badly made up obvious gentleman but clearly comfortable in full female attire. My two are very interested but say nothing at this point. We sit and begin to eat. He unfortunately sits nearby and in my son's eyeline. We continue to eat as I watch the cogs turn, waiting...
Then loudly, "Daddy, why is that man in a dress?" The man and and I make eye contact, I make a small wave and look contrite. He raises his hand with a wry smile.
I could feel for the girl my son pointed at because I was a tomboy as a kid and always had my hair short and would not get the girl NHS specs as in the 70's they were BAD!! so had the boys. One day after school, not being allowed at school to wear trousers, a couple of old women in M&S said loudly as I went past, "What kind of mother allows their son to wear girls clothing"
I just ignored them but it did hurt a bit though
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
