Emancipation, Freedom, Gender Space Pirate, Poems

Poem: My ship has finally landed!


My ship has finally landed!

Thank you for welcoming me to this strange planet

where only typical men and women are allowed to exist.

I am obviously an Alien Space Pirate.

Space Pirate, you say?

How strange is that?

There’s Space, which doesn’t have Pirates,

and there are Pirates, that should never be in Space.

Everybody knows that, right?

But here I am – a Space Pirate.

Actually, I present this way because for most my life that’s exactly the way I felt – an alien from another world, a visitor from another planet.

Not from your male and female ONLY Planet Earth.

To me, the gender binary ideal is a man-made myth.

My culture, my experience, my very body – is different from most of yours.

I simply ask that you listen with care, open your heart, and open your mind – and learn about my life as a Gender Alien Space Pirate.

I was born into a body that did not conform to the ideals of what Earth claims create a male or female body.

That is because I was born intersex.

I am Proudly the First in Colorado to get an Intersex Birth Certificate
