Cancel Culture and the Trans Woman.

If your culture’s racist past, it’s xenophobic, sexist, misogynistic, colonizing views and actions are now being called to accountability, it’s not cancel culture, it’s justice for some horrible ways of being and seeing others throughout history. It’s like saying that just because I’m saying enough of your abuse, that I’m cancelling your right to express yourself, well it isn’t. I am a woman of trans origin, I’m queer and in spite of the fact that I have experienced quite a bit of transphobia over the years,  people of colour and… Read more Cancel Culture and the Trans Woman.

Coming to grips with me.

As many humans, I have this tendency of not really seeing or fully acknowledging my worth, I am self-deprecating and don’t always understand that who and what I am has value, is valuable. Being an artist, I’ve created so many paintings over the years and though I know I’m pretty good at what I do, more often than not I find I’m not good enough, not creatively or technically, I seem to judge what I’ve created as somehow of lesser value than it is. I am catching myself, trying to… Read more Coming to grips with me.

Trusting my story to my co-writer.

and trusting myself to put it out there. I first began writing my story because of a need to better understand myself, a bit like I have a habit of doing when working on a painting, I will get up from the easel and back away some ten feet and just relax and look at what I have done and then decide on one thing I really want to change in order to improve upon the painting, I do this throughout and it has served me well. I mention the… Read more Trusting my story to my co-writer.

All Stories are New.

Stories, written and in films, often treat trans characters as deficient, as broken, rarely looking any deeper than their appearance. Trans characters in film usual fall into mostly negative narratives, usually dependent upon others good graces for their survival. Family and friends get to be who decides if the trans character will be accepted, tolerated and simply thrown away. My story has not been sensational, my struggles though personal can be found in the lives of so many. My memoirs, I hope, speaks more to resolve and of a deep… Read more All Stories are New.

Another Trans memoir, maybe not.

I look upon my memoirs as a throwback genre of how women such as myself used to write their memoirs , mainly about childhood and when I knew I was a female in the wrong body, about the transition. Then I read my story and discover that it’s so much more than this, my life, even as it relates to being trans from birth, speak to adventures I’ve had along the way, my memoirs are filled with all manner of events, usually having little to nothing to do with being… Read more Another Trans memoir, maybe not.

Erotic Art

Rope Play / Jeux de Cordes©Circéoil on canvas / huile sur toile 24” x 36” Female sexuality, power exchange, consent. Circé sees such activities as a possible subversive act of lampooning patriarchy. She does not perceive any woman who participate in Kink or BDSM play as non-feminist, but rather sees it all as just another expression of sexuality.  For Circé, there is no shame in consensual sexuality. That the patriarchy may have had a hand in how a woman can be a submissive can hold truth, it should never take away… Read more Erotic Art
