No, I'm not in the wrong bathroom.
So a psychiatrist walks into a bar,
asks for scotch, two fingers deep, no ice.
The strangers with hunched backs
all grunt in admiration and approval around him.
One of them asks him what he does for a living.
He takes a sip without wincing
and doesn’t answer.

There’s a 17 year old patient of his who won’t
stop telling him about how bad she wants him to fuck her.
Another middle-aged woman
can’t take a shower because she
thinks her dead husband is trapped in the drain.
He finishes his drink and thinks
about all the different ways
a person can drown.

A psychiatrist walks into a bar
and gets drunk off his ass drinking hard liquor.
He can’t remember the last time he
felt this full and on fire.
The world is spinning like it’s
trying to run away, so he starts talking
to God in the parking lot.
God answers with a gust of wind
just gentle enough to knock him
to the ground, laughing like a child
who has just heard his first words.

He should probably get some help,
he thinks.

Dean Spade: Trans Students and Women's Colleges from BCRW Videos on Vimeo.



A few months ago, Dean Spade gave a talk at my school about the relationship between trans students and women’s colleges. I honestly haven’t stopped thinking about it since.

Women’s colleges, especially Barnard, pride themselves on building a foundation of leaders who fight back against patriarchal gender biases. That goal needs to be realized as a vision of inclusion and Dean Spade communicates this beautifully. 

Our culture is entrenched in politics and college campuses need to foster political growth rather than political perpetuation. 

We all have a responsibility, no matter what gender (or lack there of) we may identify as, to use the political power we have to accomplish the goal that women’s colleges are grounded on. 

As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life.

When I get my license, I’m taking my friends on a cute camping trip.

We’re going to eat toblerone.
