I fear scrutinization by the “normals” who run and define society- the whites, the male-bodied, the heteronorms, the homonationalists, the liberals, the americans […]

To have my infinitely vast identity ripped apart and hyphenated until I am breathless is what I fear. To be judged on how closely each crude fragmented part resembles society’s caricature of what it is supposed to look, think and act like is what I fear. To break from carrying the burden of the myriad of communities I am suppose to “represent” is what I fear.

This is what it feels like to live on the margins.
