A New Life
Haruki Ita, a Japanese man with gender dysphoria had recently left Japan after fully transitioning to start a new life as a woman.
First, she tried moving to Canada. With its liberal social policies, and accepting populace, it seemed the perfect place. But the very first night in the hotel, she made a call to the manager to request additional towels, and the call ended with “Have a good night, Mr. Ita.” Taking that as a sign that Canada was not the place for her, she booked a flight to leave early the next morning.
So she tried going to the United States, which had made some strides recently in LGBT rights. But let’s be honest, the US is kind of a dumpster fire right now, what with the Nazis and such, so she moved on.
Finally she flew to Cuba, just to sit on the beach and escape from everything. Everyone in Cuba was so kind, so accommodating, and addressed her respectfully. She even went out without any makeup, and still, everyone went out of their way to use her new pronouns.
After two weeks, she contacted a local realtor and said she wanted to buy a house.
“Why would you want to stay here, when you could live anywhere in the world?” asked the realtor.
“I love it when you call me señorita.”
