Invisibilizing

I was multiple and fluid before you took all the particles of matter that encompass my human body and organized them in a way that you could understand without any questions, without my consent. You took all my reasons and rendered them invisible, integrating information about me in your brain as fact. What takes greater precedence? There’s a value system from what I wear, to my body, to my career choices, to the colour of skin, to the able-ness of my body and mind, to the class that I occupy. I am gendered and sexed. And you talk about goodness and you talk about safety, but what do you do to create an environment for others to feel safe and multiple? Diverse, where everything about everything is all of me?
