Black Folks and Heteronormativity

Image
Let me begin this post about defining Heteronormativity.  Heteronormativity is the belief that people fall into distinct and complementary genders (man and woman) with natural roles in life. It asserts that heterosexuality is the only sexual orientation or only norm, and states that sexual and marital relations are most (or only) fitting between people of opposite sexes.


  Since I have began my transition from male to female, Heteronormativity has been constantly thrown in my face. I can't help because I am Gay and I refuse to help or get counseling because I am a proud Black Transgender Woman!!!  I am a woman with purpose!!!    Heteronormativity showed up while I was getting my hair styled by my best friend.  My uncle opens his transphobic mouth with "why are you getting those braids so long."
My response was "because I want to,"   and I continue to gab with my best friend.   It really pissed me off. For the last year and a half my family aka my dad's s…

The Transition and the Journey

Image
See the picture above? That picture depicts a happy transwoman. I haven't always been this happy.
Why? Mainly because I felt that I was trapped in the wrong body. Trapped in an evil costume that caused me to act and be something that I knew I wasn't. This is called "Gender Dysphoria."
As I progress in my transition, I am proud to say that I am now enrolled into therapy to go further in my transition, mentally process things, and deal with the emotional trials that may come my way.  I must say that therapy is much needed.
 During my time away, I've become comfortable with myself and I took the time to clear other people's opinions on what Trans is supposed to look like. Trans comes in many shapes, sizes, styles, and shades.
Us trans people are often overlooked when we don't look like Laverne Cox or Even Caitlyn Jenner. But this is MY transition, MY Journey, and no one else's.  I am proud of where I am going.  With the new and improved Musique's …

Me Time and Life

Image
Many of you have been wondering where I have been the last week or so. Well I've actually been taking me some me time that was much needed.    Since the release of the crazy, bitter ex, I've had to spend sometime regrouping. Through this time I was able to focus on me and regain my focus on my music and the move to the DMV. I had spent so much time trying to make something work, but the only thing that was working was my money.   Sometimes people don't want you because they love you. They see what you have to offer and what you can do for them and they neglect the love factor and focus on the "what can I get out of this person factor."     It is sad and unfortunate, but I'm thankful for the experience. Why? Well It is allowing me to transition like I desire. It is also allowing me to explore the polyamorous side of me.  I'm in a time of exploration and a time of transition. If you want to be apart of this transition please click on the link below. This…

The Fed's Take Down RentBoy: Is This An Attack on the LGBT Community?

Image
Ain't this some ish? The Feds have shut down famed sex site, Rentboy.com.  No Lie they actually did. On August 25th, the federal government arrested CEO Jeffrey Hurant and 6 employees, as well as took boxes and servers in a raid that was part of a sting operation.
  They have been charged with male prostitution....Wait what about all the heterosexual sites that promote heterosexual prostitution and female prostitution?  Can homeland security find a better way to spend our money, like finding actual terrorists and not arresting people trying to make a living the best they know how.
  Let's talk about the people that sell sex to make it through college or to keep from being homeless.  I think it is time for the decriminalization of sex workers. That has been the oldest profession in the books. What is so cheesy is that they chose to take down an lgbt site. Really.
Fuck!!!!

Being a Black Genderqueer in America #TransLivesMatter

Image
With the recent murders of 18 Transpeople, 16 of those being People of Color, Women of Color, I have been considering my own mortality.  Why? Well for starters, I'm a Black Genderqueer living in South Carolina.  This is the place where the Charleston 9 were murdered in a worship facility, the Confederate Flag was Finally Taken down from the state house after 150 years, and unfortunately, South Carolina is still ass backwards in time and thinking.   I recall one day as I began to take a walk in my neighborhood, in early spring 2015, I was dressed and painted for the Gods and I heard a White Man yell "You're a Boy."  I kept walking and ignored him and acted unbothered, when the truth was, I was fearful that he and his Hillbilly boys were going to attack me and beat me just for wearing a scarf, skinny jeans, light blue shoes, and dangling earrings.   Thankfully I walked away with my life, but I am saddened that my sisters that have been attacked recently were not aff…
