Go here to listen to my interview with outrageously daring and compassionate Kate Bornstein.
Here is the blog www.katebornstein.typepad.com/
I would like to thank Kate for uplifting my heart and challenging me to be more FREE. Kate was a man and became a woman only to discover that being a GENDER THING was not enough. Why do we have to be SOMETHING instead of SOMEONE?
If Man or Woman as a label really helps you feel more of who you are then GO FOR IT!
But if MAN OR WOMAN does not really describe the unlimited sense of YOU then drop the labels and
the postures and become YOURSELF.
Does biology truly imply destiny?
Hmmmm What if we are only enclosed in a body but not confined to it's contours?
Kate talks about doing anything to keep yourself alive if you are feeling suicidal in her book CRUEL WORLD.
I want to take it one step to the left and say WHY NOT CELEBRATE WHO YOU ARE RIGHT NOW, AND PRETEND IF YOU NEED TO THAT YOU ARE EXACTLY THE RIGHT PERSON TO BE YOU. AS my friend EMILIKA once said "WHEN YOU FEEL DOWN JUST CREATE"
There is no better protest to the voices or people who would oppress you then to MAKE SOMETHING OF YOURSELF AND EXPRESS YOURSELF.
Cudos to KATE BORNSTEIN for having the guts and heart to lead the way!
