The non-consensual and non-essential surgical mutilation of infant genitalia is a direct attempt to erase the existence of intersex and intergender people; which has existed in practice, by the colonizer, for thousands of years. Violent, fear based enforcement of the binary upon not only the body but also upon and within the human subconsciousness, as a means of controlling self knowledge (aka authenticity) is terrorism, or ...religion.
This is only done to propagate the idea that the Cisgendered Heteronormative experience of a human body, and whats done with it, is the only “normal” experience one “should” have; and that any/all other completely natural variations of human sexual and gendered expressions/relations outside the binary are “deviant” and/or “abnormal” (ironic sad considering the complacency with the practice of cutting up baby private parts as being normal in any way).
When you are unable to experience your authentic body, you are unable to experience your authentic pleasure - you are unable to experience your authentic self, your authentic knowledge, your authentic happiness. And you may become unaware that you are experiencing someone else’s definition of being. Unaware that you are not you, a human being. Unaware that you have been enslaved. This is the intention of mutilation.
Gender variance is as natural as sexual variance - yet we are told that all babies are born with either one of two genital options and that those two options are intrinsically tied to our gender expression (something to be fixed and unchangeable); as opposed to being told that every single human being is born unique and that our bodies & beings reflect this endless, eternal, universal path called change.
Self pleasure is the revolution.
Welcome to the jungle.
