This is a self portrait - Idk, guess it cld be called “Trans Girl Blossoming,” or “Trans Woman Just Leaving Her cocoon” 💙🦋 I took the orig pic for this manip on Xmas night. I went to one of my fave night clubs, for their weekly Dancehall Monday that fell on Xmas & NYE this year. I went with friends I’d just gotten to know this past year, when i turned my life around. I was tired of being lonely and depressed, so I purposely got out of my comfort zone and met new ppl. These new friends reflected back to me - and continue to reflect back - that they only see me as a woman. The way i talk, walk, sit, move, whatever, is completely feminine. I’d been working really hard toward that exact goal and I’d arrived without realizing. At that point I truly felt my womanhood begin to bloom forth from me. Men started paying more attn to me, and i liked it & i flirted back. I feel all this power in my femininity, way more power than i ever felt within myself before. The male privilege i was given never felt right, it was not power that came from within, it was superficial. The power of my womanhood feels strong, deep, green, growing from within me. I’m happy, and i feel confident in my womanhood, bc no matter what anyone says, that’s who i am, a woman, a powerful woman with an unusual perspective on gender. I love being female, i love looking pretty, knowing how to use makeup to accentuate my features, wearing clothes that play up my body’s assets. I love my femininity, not bc I’m adhering to some abstract ideal, but bc i took the time to figure out who i am as a woman💝 Now I can see the path before me, i know where to go, i love myself, and i know who i am💚🧚🏽♀️for the first time in my life ever #selfie#selfportrait#transgender#translife#womanartist#transartist#photoart#manipulation#expressionistic#glitchart#digitalart#surreal#femininity#expressionism#femaleartist#expressionistart#colorful#photomanipulation#portrait#portraitphotography#portraiture#trans#lgbtq#transpride#pigtails#feministart#intersectionalfeminism#edit_lovers_united#femaleportrait#femalepower
Day of reckoning is here.
We are having my daughter’s family (of 5!) move in with us for a little while, until their new home is finished. Because of that, my craft/crap room needs to be organized and emptied. Oh dear. This is trouble. @stevevistaunet said he’d help but when he walked in he stepped on a metal pants hanger and got mad and now he won’t leave! I told him I’d clean it and he said enough is enough. So, with his unsolicited, irritating help, this room will be emptied today. I hope I survive.
I need @talivista to help! She’s the ultimate organizer and makes me get rid of stuff. I think it’s time for a DI drop off run. Or @noelleodesigns @brittanyjepsen @whimsimobilia @heymami or anyone else, what can I give you?? .
At least I made a path. Can you see the path?!
