Skepsos's skepsis

The fluxus of socialising

Posted in Skepsos by skepsos on March 14, 2010

‘You can reach all you want in life’ – is nasty bullshit. I don’t like it for two reasons.
One: it sort of implies that people who haven’t reached all they want, are losers and it’s their own fault. But we very well know there are plenty of boys and girls who were born in really bad neighbourhoods, or in poor countries, or countries that are at war, who won’t have that opportunity and will always stay behind even if they do escape their descent.
So it totally disregards society and circumstance.
Two: the second reason is linguistics related. If you say ‘you can reach all you want’ it also implies you already know what you want, without any outside influence. But that would be horrible and totally unrealistic. Everyone meets others. Other people can inspire you and make you change your mind, if only ever so slightly. Everyone is formed, not static. This means there is no standard recipe for being a ‘selfmade man’ or for ‘having it made.’
People who know what they want and never ever change their mind are less likely to consider other peoples’ views and needs.
When saying ‘You can reach all you want in life’ you’re omitting outside influence, the importance of exchange.
And you know what: a hermit doesn’t get close to himself. I don’t think people can ‘find themselves’ through solistic meditation.
I have learned who I am only by interacting with others.
This fluxus of personality, I’d like to call it, seems to be quite the taboo in modern day capitalist society.

For me personally I feel I have no gender, or… an infinite number of genders I guess.
It just doesn’t make sense for me, because I never feel static + I don’t identify with others. But looking at those other people, for example transwomen who say “I am a woman” – i look at them and experience their gender and yes: you would have to be blind not to see the 100% woman they really are.

My nonconformity was always motivated by the desire of finding myself, it was never provocation.
I’m far too sissy for that.
It’s in my nature to be genderqueer, and I’m glad I had the chance to nurture that aspect.

The penis is not a male body part.

If a man’s penis gets cut off due to an accident, does it stop him from being a man? -No.

Is a transsexual woman, who still has her penis, a woman? -Yes.

Gender is dynamic throughout any individuals’ life, because I feel our genders change depending on who we are having a relationship with. Nothing in life is static, including our own selves.
