+ Jazmine Hughes‘s One Big Question: What do you want people to say about you after you’ve left the room? I want them to say “That was a super weird outfit, but it worked, somehow?” Or maybe “Now that’s the kind of person you want to binge-watch Netflix with. Bet she makes great nachos.” Because I do, reader. I do make great fucking nachos. You can put that up there with ERWB always being bisexual, ok? You can take that to the fucking bank.
I picked out this quote from Trans, which speaks to a relationship to time: “Suddenly I was feeling that division just as sharply as before I came out. The transition had done strange things to my sense of lived time, simultaneously making me feel pubertal and prematurely aged, as if I’d existed twice.”
I think I’m talking about a photo I’d seen of myself in Manchester in 2004, where I’m wearing lipstick, I’ve got a headscarf on and I’m wearing a twenties-style dress. I’d somehow forgotten that there was this long intermediary period in which I was moving – not necessarily smoothly, but continuously – from male to female. Other aspects of the transition, like changing my name, made a sharp break in how I was living, which did kind of make me feel like I’d lived twice. Very odd things happened to my sense of lived time.
