I would like to experience being a young woman. This is not to say I’m unhappy with my assigned gender. But TEMPORARILY I think it would be interesting to gain that perspective. I find trying to write from that perspective (being a middle-aged man), my wife (one of my most faithful critics) will read what I have written and pronounce it as “tripe!”
She clearly tells me that “no woman would think/ feel/ say/ do anything like” what I have written. I appreciate her truthful criticism; because she obviously understands a woman’s perspective much better than I do. I have the wrong kind of plumbing for that insight.
But, to temporarily be a young woman would enrich my understanding of their perspective, and make me a better writer.
