Thank you, thank you, a million times, thank you!
I’m a cis-male who is strongly pulled towards femme, and it’s a particular conjunction of my privilege and feeling out of it which has been perhaps ~the~ conflict of my internal and social life. I am still afforded advantages that I will not deny, and this feels like a piece that affirms my desire and will to be a better person for and to all who need compassion, as long as they’re not shitty themselves. I cried several times while reading this — and felt a little less shame about that than I usually do.
May you find the peace, love, strength and joy in your life and path.
