For me, femme is about healing
it is about the rituals of adornment that I use to calm my anxiety, and quell my tears after days where transphobia slips under my skin like stubborn splinters
it is about reaching across time, bridging the distance between the man I am and the girl I was.
it is about finding that girl in the recesses of my heart, holding him in my arms, and saying “it will be okay, we made it out alive.”
it is about finding a way to be a boy that doesn’t hurt.
it is about nurturing all the femme parts of myself that I suffocated, just so the boy part of myself might be visible to other people.
For me, femme is about resistance
it is about refusing to believe that there is a right way to be a man
it is about glitter armor and gestural fierceness coating my spirit so that I might just be strong enough to survive
it is about reclaiming and flaunting all of the parts of my femininity that have been used to say that the sexual assaults were my fault
For me, femme is about healing, resistance, survival.  
Somedays, femme is all I have.

loved this, lost it, and finally refound it today on someone else’s tumblr

THIS. THIS. THIS."it is about nurturing all the femme parts of myself that I suffocated, just so the boy part of myself might be visible to other people."Yeah, I’m genderqueer…and I don’t leave home without makeup on. And I fucking love tutus and occasionally wear push-up bras. Not a fuck is being given.

    For me it’s a way to love and rid myself of an entire childhood of false beliefs.
