Creating new characters

I just created a new character, he will be a neighbour’s of Mary, the protagonist. He is a man in his sixties, an old school hippy, a good and decent man who doesn’t trust the Man (law enforcement, etc.) He and Mary get along and sometimes go foraging for wild mushrooms.

Am I a Woman.

How do I know I am a woman since there are those who would push back on who I know myself to be, who would tear me down, lay waste to my very sense of self, all in the name of purity.
