It's easy to forget that the world you walk through is one very different than the world the person beside you walks through. You feel safe, and perhaps they are scared. Or you are having fun, and they are miserable.
Our society is strongly divided by gender. These two posts reflect that, and how our worlds are different just by virtue of what gender we appear to be.

Take a moment to read (or re-read) these, and try to imagine the world through someone else's eyes.
