"Why do you intimidate people?"
"Itâ€™s the media, man. People put you into these little compartments in their brains and then they think they know you. â€˜Oh, ok. A six-foot-two 350-pound humanoid made from military-grade titanium alloy. Probably out to annihilate all of humanity. Better get away from HIM.â€™
No oneâ€™s willing to risk challenging their first impressions, let alone consider that I might prefer not to be referred to using traditional male gender pronouns."
