No soy ni mujer ni hombre. Me hace sentir con comodidad cuándo la gente usa una "x" en vez de una "a" o una "o" para referirse a mí (por ejemplo: ahorita estoy cansadx). La tiendo a pronunciar como "e" pero conozco algunas personas que la pronuncian como "x" y también suena chido.
Creo en el poliamor y me gusta tener una comunidad de amistades.
Fui a la Universidad de California, en Santa Cruz, pero ahora vivo en el DF. Crecí en un pueblito muy chiquito, así que el df es un cambio bien grande, pero me gusta. Analysis is really important to me, and I get really frustrated with most of the "isms." I've been trying to speak up more about it, but I tend to be on the quiet side, especially in large groups.
And now for some disconnected thoughts:
I have some AMAZING friends, and enjoy bursts of energy and joy when I'm around them and other people I connect with.
I grew up around bicycle races, so although they stress me out, I find them kind of nostalgic.
When I was younger, my brother and I would act out plays for fun, and now he's doing lighting design for plays
I found some pictures of my great-grandparents in which they appear to be crossdressing, though perhaps in fact they didn't identify in a heteronormative way. This makes me happy, and I wish I knew more about them.
I am non-normative, queer, and adapting
I try to make sure that I do things with my time that I enjoy, rather than preparing to enjoy something in the future (although I don't think these are mutually exclusive).
Ahorita trabajo dando clases hago algunas otras cosas. Me encanta el df y se ha vuelto una parte importante de mi vida. Tomo una clase de Kundalini yoga una vez a la semana y medito casi todos los días.
my shoes; my height; my humor
One of the first things people used to notice about me was my long hair, as I had never cut it. In November 2008 I cut it for myself twice, and am quite happy with the idea of cutting it whenever I want a change.
They probably don't realize that both my hair and shoes represent an attempt to resist binaries.
Books: Redefining out Relationships: Guidlines for Responsible Open Relationships, Assata, Aboliton Democracy, Colonize This!
Music: depends on the situation and my mood
Food: most anything vegan, though I'm not terribly fond of eggplant
-being entrusted to listen
-change (but not in the political rhetoric sense)
implications, structures of power and inequality, radical activism, (how I relate to) the theories I learn/read about, non-normative relationships, hegemony, racism, cultural production as possible resistance, how to best support friends, privilege, how to not make people feel obligated
especially you view the world through a critical lens
you are queer, poly, and trans friendly
you like to cuddle
you have a cool vegan recipe to share!
