to walk "widdershins" is to walk counterclockwise or backward around something. it's a classic pathway into the fairy realm. it's also the way people often back slowly into the relationships that matter, the real ones that make for a life.
"perhaps in the trans longing to become something else, one can see the deep desire for connection and transformation, the age-old longing to become more than we are. perhaps...we can shake off the regimes of government, religion, and science which seek to define and limit us and tell us that we are only what we are now."

"when i say i’m queer, i’m saying that i think human beings are amazing. and love is an honour and an opportunity. and a fragile thing. a fragile process in which there’s no room for doubt, or shame, or hatred."
“and if i was in the middle, what did that mean? that i was both male and female, or neither? or something else altogether?
what made a person male or female, anyway? the way they looked? the way they acted? the way they thought? their hormones? their genitals? what if some of those attributes pointed in one direction and some in the other? when i decided i was a boy, i realized that if i wanted to pass, i’d have to learn to walk differently, talk differently, dress differently, basically act differently than i did as a girl. but why did we need to act at all?…so maybe it was silly for me to try to be somebody else’s idea of a boy.”
