staged living


gender is performative
-e.guy, period 5, friday 14.8.2009

i find this a very interesting statement.
but then i guess identity becomes performative too...
let me perform as a woman, not a girl, who knows exactly who she is. ill wear short short skirts and have intangible lips, painted bright fuschia. ill hold my head high and strut the streets with a glint of determination in my sapphire eyes.
my act will become my identity and no one will know, except for you.
but you wouldnt tell anyone its just a performance, would you?
