Progressive

Trent had always considered himself pretty progressive. He had tried to support causes that fought misogyny and racism. But it was the Great Shift that truly caused him to take a look inside of himself.

He had been born a white man, yet was now inside of the body of an African American woman. He would try to tell other people neither his new race nor gender mattered much, but inside of his own head, it was much different.

When he got dressed in the morning, he felt uncomfortable with his body in ways he couldn’t describe. At first, he tried to dismiss it as just due to the fact that he was adjusting to a new body. As time when on, he couldn’t help but wonder if it continued to be awkward for him because deep down he truly had some prejudice that he never admitted to before...
