a body you can get away with; or: a list of things that are erotic is a manifesto.

some of it has been stuck in my throat for months. some of it has been stuck in my throat for years. in a way, it's a promise and a look-ahead of the art i'm going to continue to make. 

i did all of the writing, format, and layout in four hours for the Manifesto Jam 2022. i hope you enjoy it.

content notes: sex, transmisogyny, violence, weed; brief mentions of infectious disease, police

I love how you structured this! I'm a gay(ish?) transmasc, but I think the beauty of queer love and how you wrote about it is such a universal powerful experience.

I want to hold them, my queer experiences and those of others, even yours too! Our queer bodies are beautiful and resilient, and I'm glad I can get away with it too.

Thank you

I wish I was more articulate but thank you for being exactly who you are, and thank you for writing this.

hello sasha,

the 46 one made me get up from my bed and write some things for myself. it was nice. i also let myself have some fun and write down some punkts in similar style from my own place of raw honesty. self-exploration hell yeah o^o

i cannot relate to a lot of things from the manifesto, but by the end the existence of it made me happy. i am also v happy and grateful i got to read it. it made me think and quietly contemplate on the pact of love i made with myself a few years ago; how people change and grow and survive, how i change and grow and survive. thank you for the community copy, i will cherish it and keep in my mind corner as a proof that being trans does not mean i will have to hold my breath for forever. 

i loved and related to the punkts 21-26, 28, 35, 62, 65 (i have not experienced that with another person, but sometimes i get to see myself throught the lens of self-love that evoke similar wondrous "oh"; thank you for granting me the realisation of that it is and the reminder of how it can feel), 70-73. 

i never normally write comments as letters, it just felt right. hope u r trivin still. thank you very much and happy pride! 

with imaginary grateful smiles and with hugs,

nik

hi nik, 

thank you very much for your words, i am humbled to hear that my writing inspired you!

about 46 — this was a tool a friend gave me, which was given to them by their therapist. i do this ritually, fairly often, even if i'm only vaguely feeling thoughts of doom creep in. it really really helps me. i hope it can help other people.

a lot of this text is a tool to help me get through a hard place. honestly i need to read this now more than i did when i wrote it. so it goes. 

thank you for leaving this comment, and happy pride.

yours in solidarity,

sasha

I'm transmasc, but I've definitely loved trans women. I see shades of the dolls I've kissed in this writing, and shades of myself, too. Thank you for this raw, sexy, honest, ferocious piece of queer lit, sister. I feel fed by it, and I'm going to recommend it to my trans friends of all genders. xo.

just quoting myself here: this fucking slaps …it slaps SO hard reading this makes me love being a trans woman so fucking much. it’s that feeling i get by listening to Tami T or Sophie

this means so much to me, thank you for your kind words
