in a hole

Art/Literary - Cinema, Film, TV, Drama / Documentary about gender identity
English term or phrase: in a hole
Em um documentário sobre identidade de gênero, um entrevistado diz:

Where I come from you are a male or a female.
Am I living in a hole?

Sei que estar "in a hole" pode significar estar endividado ou em uma situação difícil de sair, mas não parece fazer sentido aqui. Soa mais como estar "vivendo numa bolha" (to living under a rock), isolado dos acontecimentos do momento.

O que acham?

Desde já, muito obrigado

Numa (em uma) caverna / gruta


Explanation:
O sentido é o de viver separado do mundo, sim, mas mais - num "buraco" literalmente, mas gruta/caverna funciona melhor, pois remete para o ser humano primitivo (altura em que havia machos e fêmeas). Isto para dizer que não se colocava sequer a questão de género.

agree  Dayana Hashim: Prefiro esta opção para o sentido de isolamento. "Bolha" me remete mais a "bolha social", um círculo que compartilha gostos, valores etc em comum, protegido de ideias contrárias.
