A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Interview quietly cancelled after transgender discovery.

by BecomingLuke on July 15, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I have a feeling this is only the first of many that I will face down the road.
It's entirely legal to fire me once the discovery has been made once I've been hired, and it's acceptable to deny me an interview based on appearance.

As much as I want to gripe about it, and raise hell, I realise that it's legal and as long as they're that shallow about gender, I don't really want to work for them anyways.
