If I were a boy.

When I was in university, an editor at the student newspaper took me on almost as an apprentice. I later found out he was interested in me beyond our professional relationship, and that was why he was interested in spending time with me, not because he thought I was necessarily talented.

My first job, the store owner told me he was happy I was on the cashier because I was very beautiful so people would like to talk to me.

At the time, I always took these as compliments, but now looking back on it I’m disgusted by it.

I often think, how would my life experience be different if I were a man? 

The new boy/girl filter on Snapchat also helped me realize who it would look like through a mirror...
