We all live in a gender submarine
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.
