  1. i want for these people to be happy within themselves and to stop seeking external validation.

    that second video was so dull.

    Creepy. And art? Not so much.

    I thought the second video was the perfect metaphor for how boring this conversation about gender is. The first video was pretty.

  4. Bev Jo Says:

    In the first video, is the point that all are equal? Or none of the differences should matter? Then why is the F2M not shaved at all with her new “male” hair growth, but the women are shaved except for a little unnatural pubic stripe? I have NEVER seen female bodies with hair like that, and most have hair going up to their navels and elsewhere. Yes, creepy!

    I really liked the second one. What really stood out for me was the idea of “I want my art to be universal”. A woman’s art- or any experience- is never “universal”. It’s always gendered. And figures of women depicted in art are never “universal”. A male figure can represent “everyman”, “the human condition”, “humanity”, “mortality”- but a female figure in art never represents universality, even when the artist intends it as such.

    The first video was lolololololol, although the lisa gerrrard music was pretty.

    In today’s local news:

    So does this seem like how a woman behaves, or an abusive controlling male on hearing that his wife is leaving him?
