Misgendering João

Argentina / Germany

I met João in a house full of people and we started talking about cinema and dancing.

-Fluidity is a beautiful thing.
-It is, and it gives me so much joy and I love it. But also sometimes I see myself and I get overwhelmed.

-I understand.

-Yes, sometimes I find it difficult to be saying these things about what is masculine and feminine because that is something that I literally fight against, but at the same time we all have to be honest that these are simply the terms that we can use and that we can destroy
- But that's what we have to work with, you know? In some way.


-When I see myself I feel more masculine, and that's something that I like a lot because I really feel masculine at the moment but at the same time I don't feel masculine because I still feel very non-binary, but more like a masculine non-binary person, you know?
