Week 5: Gender

He/Him/His, She/Her/Her’s, They/Them/Their……what is your pronoun, and what does it mean to you? Can you be a masculine feminist? Is it OK to take pride in bring masculine without showing masculine privilege? Do you understand the difference between sex, and gender? How do you define those words? Can you grasp the concept of one being capable of exuding both roles…either at separate times, or simultaneously?

I challenge you all to define your gender identity. Explain why you connect to the pronoun you use in reference to yourself, and exactly what you wish that identity to mean to other people.

Genevieve’s Cycle Two, Week Five: Running

Nine years running
salt sea circles around
the girl on the other
side of the mirror,
laughing, laughing at
her thighs, the red creases
like splinters across her
wide abdomen. One
year of solid therapy.
The concept of ownership
is still so foreign.

Everyone always asks me
what I’m thinking. No one
will wait for an answer.
