My name is Eriol Stephens, and although that is not the name given to me at birth it is an important piece of myself because it is how people have come to identify me. Much like names gender markers are also important to people when it comes to labeling. I must commend the government for recognizing that there is in fact a difference between birth assigned sex and gender and that there are ways for people who do in fact associate with one more than another.

I was never friends with this person as they were sort of intimidating and I can remember sort of trying to figure out whether this person was male or female, without asking them. Of course there were plenty of other kids around the school who did go up to them and ask them directly what gender they were.
