@vangranny this is another work in progress. I’ve been feeling a strong kinship with wolves lately. And it’s probably a lot to do with looking at your acrylic wolf painting for hours on end. +years on end. Oil/knife.

Ladybugs (1992) : A childhood revisited in film, Part One

Some old, white dude in a coach’s uniform
Is mentoring me on how to act like a girl
But all I want is the pretty girl in the soccer uniform
To notice me for the boy that I am

Coach Chester peels the rape culture over my ears and says, “You’ll get used to it.”
Everyone laughs at the way he teaches me to hide the obvious
They laugh at my fierce resistance

Isn’t it funny how the old man dominates the sexes?
How he dismisses the only supporting woman of color time and again?
It’s such a fucking riot that white wealth is power!

You can be a boy later, he says
We’re trying to win a game here
A trophy in a case
A marriage in tact

And I have no voice for rebuttal
Just a sick obedience
And a muffled way of hearing

It’s 81 degrees today. #heatwave #bayarea #transguy #boomokc

Excerpt from the interview I did with Autostraddle. I’m just really glad I got to get GEBO in there. Hoping it catches on :) I learned so many words tonight! We need all the words we can get.

LET ME SEE YOUR GEBO
I WANNA SEE YOUR GEBO

1/30 - April 2014

To the Bible Belt boys born in female armor

Whipping themselves with branches

Borrowed from the family tree:

Survival is not a spared rod;

It’s knowing what to strike down

Neither pulpit nor prayer

Can heal that which is not broken

You are not broken, boy

You are a miracle shift in perspective

A bursting seal of revelation

Sing the gospel hymn held in your own two psalms

Let the shell of what you were taught

Crack open the yolk of what you know

Nourish yourself with the body you were given

Nourish yourself in the life you create

Know that you are right as rain

On a sullen field of thirsty crops

For you, too, thirst to bloom

For you, too, were made in the image of God
