Graphite War Paint

My name is Jay. I exist to breathe, to grow, and to become. I am transgender, but not transient. I prefer only to transcend. I'm a writer, artist, and a dreamer. I breathe in destruction and exhale creation.

it’s late and all i can think about

When I was little
They taught me
To treat others
The way I treat myself.
These days,
I’m working
In reverse:
Trying to treat myself
The way I would
Treat others.

I will not let fear make me into a weapon

I am not a gun

my power is not for hurting people

my power is for understanding

my power is for spreading what I have managed to understand

I will feed my compassion with attention and care until it is strong enough to feed itself

Someone commented on how they liked that I wore so much black and grey but was still so friendly… My aesthetic is witchy, my species is faerie, my identity is queer, and my practice is confusing men.

Instead of trying to fictionalize gender, let’s talk about the moments in life when gender feels all too real. Because gender doesn’t feel like drag when you’re a young trans child begging your parents not to cut your hair or not to force you to wear that dress. And gender doesn’t feel like a performance when, for the first time in your life, you feel safe and empowered enough to express yourself in ways that resonate with you, rather than remaining closeted for the benefit of others. And gender doesn’t feel like a construct when you finally find that special person whose body, personality, identity, and energy feels like a perfect fit with yours. Let’s stop trying to deconstruct gender into nonexistence, and instead start celebrating it as inexplicable, varied, profound, and intricate.

You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.

You can like wearing sundresses and lace and still be nonbinary.

You can like wearing pantsuits with ties and still be a woman.

You can like wearing floral patterns and still be a man.

Gender identity is valid. Gender expression is subjective. Gender norms are bullshit.
