The truest test of the freegender soul is if you can embrace who you are,
under the dress, or wig, or falsies,
under the makeup, and waxing, and shaving
can you embrace yourself.
your high or low cheekbones
The way your eye sockets sink in or bulge out
The way your veins show on your arms
or your knobby knees
Or sinewy arches
The way your hips don't exist
Or your shoulders expand
The definition of your muscles...
Sinewy and springy
Bony and boxy
Can you find a way to not merely hide these aspects of yourself
Disguise and cover
But turn it around and work with
instead of against
This is the truest test
That you are faced with every day.
You, oh freegender brothers and sisters
Find the love of your body
Make peace with it
And you'll find the beauty and power you seek.
