The slit between my legs
is not the whole of me
It never was
It never could be
And yet it is all you think of
All you see
You reduce me to nothing
The body I never wanted
looming over me
in your words your looks your touch
Suffocates me like a shroud
forced over the rictus
of my empty endless cries
It unceasingly baffles me how white, cishet women can have endless empathy for other cishet women’s unwillingness to take abuse victims at face value, and so little for abuse victims who are fucking angry and not interested in giving lip service to the people who erase and silence us anymore.
I wish there were a way to see primarily stories non-members CAN read on my home page here, instead of being inundated with members-only content I can’t access.
Most of the non-member stories that are suggested for me are several years old.
I must admit, I feel like Medium is barely trying as a platform anymore. And I must also admit that I get more than a little bit of schadenfreude from noticing that, given the myriad bigots Medium happily provides with soapboxes.
Tl;dr: Unless you’re willing to pay for content, Medium seems nigh-unusable now. How perplexing and amusing.
I can’t imagine how they think they’ll gain new members by refusing to let non-members see the best content on the site. But maybe it’s better that way.
My main objective with this new account is to follow ALL. THE. TRANS. QUEERS. 😆
If you are one and I’m not following you yet – HIIIIIIIII!!! May a fellow tran follow you, please & thank you kindly! 🤗
