On why I buck it: Buck, BUCK, FUCK gender. I wear glitter in my beard. It’s about POWER. ME ME. I will take it have the power.
I was raped. My bodily autonomy was taken from my body, and shoved back in, and out, and in and out, until he made me/I CAME. It’s about POWER. I had no power. Where did my power go? I’ve LOST my power. Power, power, where did you go?
Well let me tell you why I wear the glitter and my silks and satins. Let me tell you about my pink turtleneck and plastic earrings. LET ME TELL YOU:
My mother does NOT like my statements or my clothes. Shes Says that wearing non-normative clothing is a shallow political statement. BUT But but her reaction is Visceral.
On the street they take my power. They try. By grabbing grabbing taunting me. But they cannot. When I own my gender. When I take it in my control. I have the power. Power Power Power Power Power Power Power Power Power Power Power Power
