The Girl: a short insight on my sexual identity crisis
May 22, 2012 § Leave a comment
Let’s start it off with an anecdote.
In fifth grade I had what I refer to as my “Identity Crisis”. It all started when I realized I had a crush on my best friend. For about a month I freaked out because I was positive must be a lesbian.
Its not that I was uncomfortable with the thought of gay women, my family is quite liberal and I’d grown up with the knowledge of same sex couples and I knew quite a few. I was freaking out because that the only option I’d heard of when it came to sexuality. You were either with a man or a woman and that was that.
I knew I wasn’t a lesbian.
After about a month I used my logical brain to settle my emotions. I had crushes on both the girls and guys in my class. And that was that. Now I just had to find a way for the rest of the world to deal with it.
I’ve always known I wasn’t one to be choosey when it came to what kind of artillery my partners were packing but I’ve always had an interest in how people react to me and why gender is of such importance to our society.
I am currently working on my BFA in Intermedia (google that one 😛 ). A lot of my art is based off the ideas I hope to put into this blog and am planning on pursuing graduate work in Social Psychology once I graduate, Which will involve getting a BSc. I’m gonna be in school thinking about things for the rest of my natural life but I guess that’s the way the cookie seems to be crumbling at the moment.
