A Vision Of Gender

SHE steps up behind with sinewy grace, her touch tender yet unyielding with the strength of her…
HE wraps his arms tightly, strength personified in the flex of muscle…
THEY lower their head, kissing skin gently, soft breaths rippling over quivering nerves…

HIS breath, quickening as flesh twines around him…
HER muscles, flexing as hands run over her ass…
THEIR eyes, drifting closed as fingers stroke their hair…

TOGETHER we wander through a world of gender unimaginable in its vastness yet intimately familiar in all its complexity…
TOGETHER we are more than the sum of our parts, more than what society has ever perceived us as…
TOGETHER there are more of us than we thought and more than we could define…

ALONE we stand as creations of turmoil, bodies forged by a refusal to obey the norm…
ALONE we walk as singular pillars, unwilling to fall down but not quite as tall as we could be…
ALONE we live as lights on a dimmer switch that never truly found its current….

ONE DAY the binary ideas of gender that separate us will be swept away…
ONE DAY she will accept him, he will accept her, and they will accept them…
ONE DAY society will accept that all of us are one person, living in the same body…

TODAY is only a whisper of yesterday and a premonition of tomorrow…

TODAY the myriad facets of gender that force us apart have begun to coalesce…

TODAY we are what we ARE!

– With love and everlasting gratitude to all the trans, transgender, t, two-spirit, genderqueer, queer, questioning and other persons who have and continue to inspire me to never give up

Love Always,

The Unmuffled Mind
