A Note Regarding Glamour, #QueensInExile and the Sacred Feminine

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

It’s for you.  Yes, you.

As a woman who grew up playing role playing games during a time where we were snottily told by the actual game books themselves that “he” is the acceptable pronoun, deal with it (not you, White Wolf).

It’s not just the game books, Charmers.  It was my life in Catholicism.  It was the thousand ways big and small I was told that my experience didn’t matter.  I howl my story, telling my experience as a femme because that is what’s shaped me into who I am.

But that doesn’t mean that you are forgotten, that whatever resonates with you is suddenly not for you because you are not a cis femme woman.  I speak about this much more in depth in my book, so to me it’s been said but to you it has not been yet because you have not had an opportunity to read it yet.  Let me rectify that.

However you find yourself relating, whatever gender you embody, whatever body you occupy, this is for you.

Always.
