one of the toughest aspects of mental illness is how often your goals fall by the wayside because the only goal you can afford is survival.

When I visit my home town for Christmas the first thing I’m looking for is my pink and purple Popples plush. I still remember being at a school car boot sale in grade 2 and seeing the little gal laid out for sale with a bunch of other toys belonging to a classmate.💖💖💖

gender/aesthetic

vee-charlotte:

For a while now I’ve been slightly puzzled by the convergence of discourse about gender and aesthetic on tumblr. I see a lot of people trying out new vocabularies to describe one or the other or both (and it’s not always clear which), blending gender descriptors with typically aesthetic terms to create new combinations (pastel queer, genderpunk, soft masc/grunge, space tomboy). Some appear to be tongue-in-cheek (seapunk? vaporwave?); some extend the concept of “gender” beyond its typical boundaries (see also: Gender of the Day); some (particularly the memetic phrase “my aesthetic: _____”) explode the concepts in ways that throw their meaning into question.

I don’t exactly have the theoretical background to consider these concepts as ontological/epistemological categories (in what ways is gender separable from aesthetic? how do we think about gender roles as inherently visible/performed?) But it occurs to me that this commingling of gender/aesthetic vocabularies is probably, at least in part, by design. And it hints at a space opening up for new and creative forms of expression. 

An alternative to “post-gender” or “gender abolition” — which seem to me potentially harmful philosophies that risk imposing new tyrannies / reinscribing existing binaries / pathologizing transness — these ways of talking suggest a rethinking and recoding of forms of identity expression/performance, of rejecting heteronormativity without violently erasing gender identities or embodied experiences of self. Rigid binary categories instead dissolve into a multiplicity of possibilities: nonstatic, frequently idiosyncratic, based on an embrace of hybridity and playful experimentation. Particularly on tumblr, which has become a space for curating and articulating one’s own personal aesthetic, people are more or less constantly inventing new ways to talk about themselves.

Again, I don’t yet know enough to make claims about what discourses are or are not “emancipatory.” But this seems to point toward a widespread reconceptualization of what gender identity means, into something more individual and fluid.

damn this post is exactly everything i have been thinking about atm about visible gender and self concept and “aesthetic” god damn it seeing it written down is giving me heartburn brvtus
