I want to be art.

Someone wrote…

I feel lost between male and neutral and femme. The body I have is beautiful, but I don’t want it.

I need to perform gender, but no one understands what I’m saying. I need to make art about it. I need to show person after person until someone catches a glimpse. And then I’ll cook them their favorite dinner and we’ll cuddle till dawn. I want to be art. I want to make this horrible body, beautiful with curves enough to make a continent in the shape of my body, into something wonderful. I want to show the maleness of my breasts and the femaleness of my muscles.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    This is just, really beautiful, a touchingly holistic use of words, the last paragraph especially so, to showcase that which you want to express, in what parts of yourself you wish to express them in. Thank you for sharing this.
