natuwa naman ako sa officemate kong si clio ! i saw him kasi este "her" pala updating her blog in an infamous site! i felt jealous though, kasi hindi naka surf control yung site 'nya. anyways, clio is my new officemate. there are 6 of them temporarily hired for the sale season na pag sinwrete, bka magiging permanent na rin. i was so glad on the texts she wrote on her profile taken from a poem. very inspiring for a geisha like "us". if i should've known it beforehand, it could've been the best description the author could give my to blog.ha ha ha! here it goes:




The Vaginaless Monologues
I am a woman.
Identifying,
Affirming,
Celebrating,
Expressing,
Determined,
Convinced,
That I am a woman.
But I am not your "typical" woman.
I was not born with a vagina.
No uterus, no ovaries.
Incapable of pregnancy.
I did not menstruate when I reached puberty
nor developed those lovely breasts.
But still...

I am a woman.
Identifying,
Affirming,
Celebrating,
Expressing,
Determined,
Convinced,
That I am a woman.
But I am not your "typical" woman.
I was born with an alien part.
I was assigned as male at birth,
recognized legally as male,
raised and socialized to become a man.
Though a male body is obviously present,
the identification, affirmation, and conviction
that "I am male, a boy, a man" are completely absent.
I possess a male body,
but that body does not possess me.
It's mine
but it does not own me.
This body though familiar feel so foreign,
though close seems so distant.
But it can not dictate otherwise
that I am a woman.
Identifying,
Affirming,
Celebrating,
Expressing,
Determined,
Convinced,
That I am a woman.
But I am not your "typical" woman.

Because whenever I call myself a woman
there are people who would look at me with consternation.
Some may consider me as delusional.
Some in attempting to comprehend my declaration
would just convince me it is just an effect of homosexuality.
Some would just treat what I say as a stupid joke.
Some would be so disturbed by it
And would try to limit my opportunities in life.
Some would see me as deviating from the laws of
a supernatural being and would like to send me to hell.
Nevertheless, I am still a woman.
Identifying,
Affirming,
Celebrating,
Expressing,
Determined,
Convinced,
That I am a woman.
But I am not your typical woman.
And that is all you need to know
in order to understand my situation.
I am not your typical woman..
