A little piece of writing I wrote for stigma zine #2 on the stigma of being seen as 'ugly':
In a cissexist patriarchal society it is inevitable that our bodies are our first big disappointments. We live in a digital landscape that is defined by images, thus to be seen as ugly is to be part of the undead. For if a person cannot be held static in image form they are rendered invisible. We are the faceless majority that needs to reclaim the act of image making and image taking in order to find our own identities.
