Public displays of self
March 8, 2011 Comments Off on Public displays of self
I’m excited to begin professionalizing my blog. What better way to start the process than with a photograph of someone unabashedly reading a book entitled, I Love Dick on the train to Brooklyn? Good for her. Currently I’m reading a review copy of a book about butch/femme identities and noticed my own shy way of hiding the cover when riding the train. I make choices about how I want to be seen every day. In which closets will I hide? How will I let others perceive me? Often I perform and visibilize the parts of myself that others decide to see, or that I think people would like to see. Would I read a book entitled I Love Dick on the train? No, probably not. Will I post a picture of someone else reading the book on my blog? Yes, I guess I will.
