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.

How was I read as female?

by BecomingLuke on March 27, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm nearly bald, my chest is bound and wasn't at all noticeable, I was dressed "male" and I thought I was passing fine, until I left and heard one of the employees tell her boss "You should hire her."
The more that I get called Luke and he/him at home and basically everywhere, the weirder it is to be misgendered and hear my birth name.
One day, I'll be able to pass without thinking twice, hopefully that day will come soon.
