Stress does weird things to your brain, well maybe not everyones but certainly mine. I write this three days before I leave for India and ok I left quite a few things to the last minute and I'd be a bit stressed out even if I hadn't buuut the little things just keep getting to me.
The positive of this is that when this post is published I'll be in Thailand with elephants which is wonderfully without stress and that's something to look forward to. But for now I need this stress to get out of my head a little bit so I can finish all my stuff, and I think writing about it might help a bit.

Stressed out

Another Costa Rica post here, and after this there are only two left (sad times) but once those are posted I'll be back from South East Asia which will mean posts from ther (yaaay). I'm sure there will be a lot to come from two months of constant travel, more or less. But we're not focusing on that or where I am in the world right now (Thailand if you're interested) it's all about some sweet sweet rainforest in Costa Rica.

So as I said a few posts ago, I want to start talking on this blog about things/issues that really matter to me. And I guess this is where I'm starting. I'm not quite ready yet to be talking about my own gender, how I identify and all that stuff because there's a lot of stuff I haven't figured out. Plus I thought that I'd explain, to those guys of you who maybe don't know, a bit about what gender actually is. How sex and gender are different and about gender roles in society a little bit too.
Just a warning I'm going to be talking about genitals (briefly) and mentioning words like penis and vagina and stuff like that so if that makes you uncomfortable you can instead just read this post about adorable sloths.
 So when you're born you're assigned a gender, based on your sex (your anatomy). So, generally, if you have a vagina you're female and if you have a penis you're male. But if your anatomy doesn't quite fit these two definitions then you're intersex (though there are issues with doctors performing surgery on babies to make them fit into male and female but that's for another post).
But gender doesn't have to be based on what you were born with. Men can have vaginas, women can have penis' and there are genders outside of those two. So on with the show.

Let's talk about Gender: Gender binary and Self identification

Well, not together, that would be uber cool though. These photos are actually from two seperate trips in Costa Rica which I thought would be too small on their own. The First photos are from Los Chorros Carataras (the chorros waterfalls) and the second set are from San Jose. Weird to think this post is going live while I'm in Nepal, crayze and exciting stuff.
