I was having a conversation with a friend last night about sex, and gender identity versus physical body. It got me thinking about how easy it is to get into circular reasoning, especially when it comes to something so emotional and sensitive as all that. The circular reasoning we were talking about goes like this:
- I like sex, and being sexual
- I identify as a woman
- I was assigned “boy” at birth, and still have ‘boy bits’
- Women can’t have ‘boy bits’
- But I like sex…
(Rinse and repeat…)
Basically, is it OK to enjoy sex, even if your body isn’t what you really want it to be? Or, you have issues using your body in the socially/culturally expected way?
