as far as I'm concerned

"As far as I'm concerned, being any gender is a drag." Patti Smith. I can't stop stop thinking about a recent NPR story on gender identity in the lives of two children and their families. Listen here. Photo by Annie Leibovitz.

hehe, I totally agree! I always love Angela Carter's no-nonsense way of putting it: "I realise now I must always have sensed that something was badly wrong with the versions of reality I was offered that took certain aspects of my being as a woman for granted. I smelled the rat in D. H. Lawrence pretty damn quick."
