by LuLu LaFlamme
I am, after so much fear, pain, disappointment, frustration, and deception, what I always knew I could be: a beautiful female.
I am not a woman, but that is an argument for another time.
I am a creation of god and goddess.
I follow pagan deities: Changó and Kwanying and Maximón.
I am a creator of poetry and art.
I am an unapologetic girly-girl.
I love clothes and bling and makeup and shoes.
I love panties and bras and tight tops.
I love my ass, tits, and legs.
I will get no surgeries beyond top surgery.
I do not need to go under the knife obsessively; ancient Greek homosexuality was not based in an artificial vagina.
I am pussy, vulnerable and emotional without upper body strength.
I am a whore, sitting in the sunlight, a skinny, dirty blonde with big boobs, bait for men who are too stupid to graze on my soft body.
I am a slut, eager to widen my ass crack to take on more men.
I am the goddess to whom religious bigots pray when they are fearful, on their way to murder me.
I am a gender revolutionary; antifascist; feminist.
I am inescapable.
I am mystery.
I am Lulu Luchadora, Queen of the Streets, love goddess, slave of the patriarchy, and Queen of the Night.
I am your future, world. Get used to it.
