Queer Binding

Someone wrote…

Today, I bound my breasts for the first time since getting them over a year ago. It’s simultaneously the queerest and most feminine I have ever felt.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I look forward to this day myself. My cis friends are so confused by me and my aspirations…

    I totally understand this. I bind daily, and yet some of those days I feel absolutely 100% feminine, despite the fact that I am binding.

    So much queerness makes me smile lots

    yesterday I dressed in super flamboyant high femme drag… (occasion being local pride parade, dressing up with friends, handing out radical queer fierceness manifesto!). bound my chest as I usually do, then put on a bra over it stuffed with socks. :) other accoutrements were high-heeled boots, skirt, blousy top, blond wig…

    I was terrified that femme drag would somehow “reveal” my inner “femaleness”, or betray an unwanted “truth” about my body. however, it was totally the opposite: it was the first time (possibly ever) that I’ve felt in command of any “feminine” aspects of my appearance. I felt my queerness so powerfully, and the short skirt & heels brought out the masculinity that is deeply innate in my body… so so intense. & so awesome & fun & powerful!

    … also (if I can say this about myself) it was kind of insanely hot. ;)

    "-How's Nathan?
    -How is he ever? Now he thinks he's a man trapped in a woman's body.
    -Don't you mean he thinks he's a woman trapped in a man's body?
    – It should be so simple."

    I am so very much with you on this one! It's not enough just to traverse to the "other side" of the binary! One must strain it to it's limits before you find yourself!

    Much support and love!
