I really debated posting these–they are, after all, ridiculous. But I took them because they made me feel good. I spend a lot of time being exposed and touched as part of my illness, and never on my terms. So I decided to expose and represent myself my way.
There are pretty strict rules about who gets to be sexy. Most of the time, as a conventionally attractive average sized white cis girl, I fall pretty well within the bounds of visual acceptability. But today I’m covered in electrodes. My illness is suddenly extremely visible and my body is no longer acceptable. Medicine objectifies and desexes me and culture ignores me. So, fuck that. I’m representing myself. Sick is femme too.
Also, enjoy my boobs I guess.
