I want to share this brilliant photo with you all:
“Judging Books By Their Covers” by TheLadyJester on DeviantArt: www.theladyjester.deviantart.com
When I look at this, I see many things. I see a beautiful piece of art, first and foremost. I see a person who is androgyne, or genderfluid, or maybe pangender or bigender. I see someone who has broken society’s gender binary in some way. I see someone being themselves, yet I see someone forced to hide. I see someone who could be hated for being the person they are, yet I see someone who could be loved for being a person they’re not. I see two people, yet I see one person. My mind quickly thought “oh look, someone dressed as a boy on one side and a girl on the other”, and that was when I realised how deeply the kyriachy has its claws in us. This is not a half-man, half-woman creature. This is a human being, being wholly the person they are, not some kind of gender chimera. This is a real soul, this is a valid identity, this is not strange and unnatural. This is human.
