We all live in a gender submarine

September 9, 2008

I recently caught myself singing “Yellow Submarine” under my breath — accidentally saying “gender” instead of “yellow”. I need to take a breather from gender-theorizing and identity-seeking (as if that were possible).

But, yeah, transgender and genderqueer are still pretty much invisible to the larger world; we do live in a submarine of sorts.

So we sailed up to the sun
Till we found a sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
in our gender submarine


Gender is yellow

The “yellow” reminds me of my header image (made from an image by rick). I like the way the “man” and “woman” aren’t straight, but they aren’t crooked or twisted either: they’re wavy. Maybe, just maybe, they’re bending gender.

    Si, es como cuando no saben de que sexo es el bebe y le compran amarillo. Podrian hacerlo siempre, o comprarles el color que se les cante las pelotas, indepentiendemente de que genital tenga el bebe, no? Pero bue.
