So about a month ago, a poem I sent to Venus Mag., an online feminist magazine for university students about gender identity called “Ella está, ya está”. It’s a play on words for “Ella” which is a traditional English female name, and “ella”, which means “she” in Spanish. The title means “She is here, that’s all.”
I was inspired by learning about the non-binary community and the socialisation of gender roles in society as a whole. Perhaps it would be interesting to ask yourself if you necessarily identify with the gender you have been given, versus the one you actually are. And whether or not it matters to you.
Hope you guys enjoy.
