Female to Male to Female

I made a video about gender fluidity. There should be annotations popping up throughout the video, but the writing is in the description as well, and I'll just post them here for good measure. I think it's pretty self explanatory, so there we go :)

Here's the video
Or watch it here

This video is a combination of me always wanting to know and being curious about what i'd look like with a beard, and wanting to express gender fluidity.

Sex =/= Gender =/= Sexuality

Gender is a social construct.

Gender is a performance and we are ALWAYS performing.

About behaviors, roles and ideas relating to someone's sex.

Our society creates a binary where two categories are mutually exclusive.
(Think masculinity and femininity.)

"One is not born a woman, one becomes one."
Simone de Beauvoir

Gender, however, like Sex and Sexuality is fluid, and has a wide range on a spectrum.

People should have the freedom to chose without hatred or discrimination simply because they don't fit certain expectations.

"This is my body. Worry about your own body.
To the people that are looking at other people
and judging them?
Get a life.
It's not your place to say anything
about how anyone is living their life
unless they ask you.
If they don't ask you? Zip it."
- Andrea's C
