This is a really useful metaphor. I go through phases of deciding that I want to try to present as more emphatically androgynous, but really, my thoughts on my own gender tend to be "meh?". And you're not "allowed" to have "meh?" as a gender identity, so I have to say meh really loudly and decisively to get the point across, which is a bit of a contradiction in terms.

This seems like the problem to me. Just like you might not care what color your hair is, you might not care what your gender identity is, and might wish other people wouldn't make such a big deal out of it. Why is everyone else so obsessed with it?

yeah, i feel like ‘meh’ isn't so much an answer as a denial that the question is applicable, but everybody keeps thinking it needing there to be an answer, and offering to compromise by treating ‘meh’ as an answer.
