Oh, Just Hanging Around…!

Submitted by Riley Alexandr-Aiden, the model and photographer.

“I’m just taking selfies at two in the morning, pondering my genetic luck:

You know how some people are just born with genderneutral features, without having to use makeup? I’m nowhere near as lucky. I’ve got the body of a very curvy girl, but I have the face of a genderneutral person who got changed to a girl at the last possible second, with all the implied sloppiness. I’m just feminine enough to be a girl, but not enough to be attractive, since I have the eyebrow game of a man and the cheekbone game of a newborn.

Yet I can’t transition. I don’t hate my current body, nor do I find it “repulsive,” as textbook definitions often require for a proper diagnosis. I wish I could halfway transition, just enough to get a little taller, speak a little deeper, run a little faster. That’s all.

Just a little dignity in passing. That’s all I ask”

    This is pretty much exactly how I look and feel.
    You just made me realise that.
