I started questioning gender based assumptions a long time ago.
When I was 8: I was confused with being called bossy because I wanted to direct plays that we would put on for our parents. But the boys were not.
When at 14: I started to be sexualised by certain elements of the media.
When at 15: My girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams because they didn’t want to appear muscly.
When at 18: My male friends were unable to express their feelings.
