We Who Are Not As Others.
Daniel P. Mannix "Freaks"RE/SEARCH
We Who Are Not As Ourselves, clearly affirm that we can be "others".
Problem appears when others -thinking to be themselves - project their own image on ourselves, hence on us as part of them. The history of gender theories denounced the social construction of a gender bipolarity. "Gegen Titans" gets into the analysis of how gender norms are multiplied in a three dimensional space.
Why does a big body mean masculinity or animality.
Why has a big man to be the space, the presence, the ruler, the top, the mentor, the psychoanalyst, the invader and the conqueror. Why is this interpreted as "masculine" in a space of being. Why is a big body becoming a bullying target when it fails its masculine performance of power. Why must a woman be minute, small, composed, submissive, invaded and conquered. Why does she have to conform to a dimension of the being in which bodies have to be subjugated by the gigantism of "being" men. Why do big women have to pay the price of their bigness by being chased as monsters.
Why is this vision applied to a queer sphere.
Why can't big men be feminine. Why can't big women be feminine. Why should transsexual women be tall and feminine to recall a biological destiny of an effeminate gay male past. Why should transsexual men be chub and masculine to recall a biological destiny of a butch dyke past. Why does a beard and a belly make a cock where a bear can have a vagina. Why does a silicon prothesis make a vagina where a femme can have a cock.
Why should we pay for a codified gender space our bodies are thrown into.
Why should we mask the oversize subtleties of body greatness into the go-big market niches. Why do big bodies have to be LGBT-gentrified simulacra where the door of a bear bar or a leather/S&M club sanctifies the constructed naturalism of manhood through the violent occupation of a space. Why can't all these constructions just fade away. Why can't we all become Titans while being small and weak.
Gegen Titans is the beauty of the exposure in the weakness of being big.
It is the loneliness of a world whose ergonomics are made by imposed heterocentric standards. It is the queerness of self-animalisation; to savage and smile. It is an ode to femme bears dancing with trans bears, fucking butch men loving femme girls kissing trans women being chub men dreaming butch dykes where collapsing skies rain organs like frogstorms to a Cassandra Crossing Crash.
Let your weakness take volume.
Be Titan. Be Gegen.
