Beat it out of me?

Entry posted

396 views

     Although the origins of the Piñata can be traced back to China it still largely represents Mexico. Just a little tidbit that I thought I would include. The issue that brought me back here to my blog is one that has occurred to me from time to, but today it hit me a little harder than usual.

     It's really not like me to rush into my local department store and rush right out. However, here I was zooming to the checkout line without making any diversions, as is normal for me.  I was in the grocery section, so there weren't any items of  my fascination near.

     My mother lives across the road so I took a stroll. Half way there I remembered passing by the Piñatas and suddenly I actually felt like one. A container holding a fine bounty of treasure that everyone rushes in to take. I'm really the treasure inside and although I really don't want to be beat up with a bat, I do wish it were so simple. Please let me use a mid 20th century slang phrase, "The Man" is trying to beat me down into some idealistic world of fictional truth! It is the world that I have lived in for almost 45 years, until one night I went to dream land and a little girl showed me who I really am. :huh::o Well, I'm next up to bat and evaluating the strategy of those that have gone before me, reviewing the weakness that I've noticed, choosing my best bat and waiting for my opportunity to knock this paper mache to the ground.  

     Oh, how much do I, (we?) wish that it really could be that simple?

Interesting metaphor. I tend to prefer thinking of myself as a butterfly emerging from her chrysalis, free to fly among the flowers.

Thanks for your concern Briannah. Yes I am quiet ok in the sense of the word that you mean. We all have problems in this life, but being beat up isn't one of mine. :)

Hi Sweet! :) Hi Bree! :)

I like to think of myself as a Statistical anomaly! :D Because I am. Which means I am normal, just a little off center! OK, MORE than just a little, but well withing the standard deviation. We exist. Always have. Are part of the historical record. We can be diagnosed and treated. In enlightened societies, we wouldn't even register on most peoples radars. We don't live in an enlightened society. We live in the USA! 

That is right Veronicabeta. and it's hard to convince others of what we know in our hearts to be true. especially here in the "Bible belt" Where nearly everyone throws bible verses at you and even then they misunderstand the actual context and take it to literal. Uhhh I guess that bible verses is better than rocks or maybe even bibles,:D.No I don't think that I'm a Pinata I really kinda just happened onto that reference and felt that it made an interesting metaphor and wanted to share.

​Yeah, one of the reasons everyone here calls me Briannah is that Nikki  made it quite clear horrible things happen and he doesn't want to be 'out' at this point because of that, so I got scared for you.  :)  I remember what it feels like to live with a monster in the house and not being able to defend myself, and no one should ever live like that.

Briannah: I used the title as an attention grabber just to pull in readers.A tactic that is used in the media trade, (I've read a couple of books).:) I never meant for it to scare any one. I know that I am listed as Female and that is because that is what I truly identify as and as a whole consider myself to be. However I haven't begun to transition yet. No, not even H.H.T., and I am quiet the stout girl at 6'3", 300+ lb and (at the moment) still looking like a man, I don't think that anyone is going to mess with me even when I come out to the world as the real me unveiled. BTW my avatar is a representative of what I intend on transitioning into as I also love the goth style and always have although I always dress as the all american country boy.;) Please forgive me of any deception, to you or anyone whom might be reading this or any of my other Blogs.

Thanks xxxx :wub:  Bree

No no it's fine, my head just goes creepy places.  The Transgender Day of Rememberance was a sobering reminder that for many transpersons it's like I was back then, and it ties together in my head.  We Bree's have to look out for each other, right?  :)
