    always have when it comes to the various "gender demands" and counterdemands society and I have heaped on me. How would I even begin unconditioning myself and throwing off the piles of heavy, thick, dark layers of external rules that drag me down -- at the same time I'm me fighting myself to keep from draping that same pile on especially the young people around me out of malignant habit?

    I'm in the right body -- born woman -- and in my mating days was quite content with my male sex and life partners. But I wasn't a girl when I was young, and I'm still not -- at least not at all the breeder kind, the nurturer, the nester, the midwife, the crone, no Madonna, no Hera, Aphrodite, Sappho or Diana. I always find myself outside archetypes, female and male, except for one. I am Martha's sister Mary, and that gives me fuck-all clue about most of her inner structure.

    Life in this human skin, a long strange trip without quite the right drugs, a candle and a cave wall and a wood trencher with little handfuls of pigments....
