Mental health is a thing,
mental health is real.
if you need help, don’t be embarrassed.
so I’ve decided a lot throughout this year.
I’ve been off of social media for over a year now and I feel a little better about myself but there is one incident that have been bothering me that I do not wish to take on anymore.
I had a friend a while ago who I thought was my best buddy, but that did not turn out well or age well. I don’t know if she ever respected me for who I am or what I was bringing to the table for our relationship.
Well, one day she had a friend who called me on her phone harassing me and calling me names because she saw what I was creating for myself (discovered I was non-binary, started crossdressing, made a book, etc.) well she did not like what I was representing. Her friend called me a joke.
I don’t even know the girl‘s name who harassed me till this day but the stuff she said left an imprint on my mind psyche.
She said I was a mockery, she said I will never know a black woman’s trauma, that I am a joke, that I am distasteful and all these hurtful things.
This is what I have to say to that:
First off all, I do this because I want to. Not because of giving praise to the culture, or trying to play something I’m not.
I crossdress because I love it. It’s a form of rebellion, aliveness, and honestly within myself that I have not been able to explore or have given to me because I grew up in a black Christian household. I grew up where black boys would bully me, I had no friends, and black girls did not want me.
I just so happen to be black and cross dress. End of discussion.
I do not cross dress to imitate. I do not represent my art because of attention.
I crossdress because I want to feel prettt in my own sexuality and skin.
I represent my brand because nobody ever represented me, nor had the balls to protect me.
So, for anybody who thinks I’m just
imitating something I’m not
thank you for your opinion! Now stay irrelevant :)
