Crystal’s Vagina Club have a look at some of our stones

norma carries a girl to be named christina

San Diego

i was told this piece of information at a young age

hey mom what happened to christina
Well, Matthew, Christina Became Christopher
so i don’t have a sister
No I’m Sorry

when i was told this at a young age my parents said they didn’t do a gender reveal and my parents told me they were expecting a girl to be born and went through all the usual routes of purchasing pink things and the girl cabbage patch dolls. i remember those dolls sitting in their unopened packages in my Grandmother Dolores’ room they sat above her full size mirror on a shelf near the ceiling. of course i had to ask now that i had come out as a woman to my parents. my dad has this to say

Well We Didn’t Get Christina But We Did End Up Getting A Girl Anyway, She Just Came Thirty Years Later. Your Aunts All Said Your Mom Was Carrying A Girl And They Could Tell Just By The Way Her Body Looked. Your Grandmother Also Did This Guamanian Ritual For Pregnant Women With A String Or Something And It Was A Gender Reveal And She Said You Were Going To Be A Girl As Well.
