Blog - Definition of Woman

What is my definition of "girl" or "woman"? This is a question I ask myself but from the transfemme angle. Physically, I am a world apart from being a "girl" or "woman." There is nothing inherently feminine about my appearance. So, what makes me transfemme? Wikipedia says that a transfeminine individual may identify with many aspects of femininity but not describe themselves as "a woman." This rings true for me. I do identify with many aspects of feminity. This lends itself to the world "identity". I have a gender identity with strong sympathies (sisterhood) with women's struggles, I feel very comfortable, even euphoric, in feminine fashions, and most importantly to me, long to step outside the box that's labeled "masculine."

Poem - The Uniform

The poem “The Uniform” is about the appearances kept for the world.


The Uniform

I'll take the uniform from the shelf
an image for the common crowd
one of many in the ranks
the same raiment is procured
from the closet in which I dwell
keeping step with the contracts

still the fit will suffice
if my true role is falsified
stating purpose with due resolve
with apparel on the frame
a disguise that few see through
when the pretense is pursued

this masquerade is portrayed
the desired set for the eye
spun from threads of fairy wings
just as real as mythic dreams
to lull the masses with the lie
keeping peace in rank and file.
