Helen: Excellent inquiry! Good to see you posting.

Transgression is the flip side of liberation. Sometimes it can seem like "license" in the negative meaning.

Ever read Kate Bornstein's _My Gender Workbook_? Or practically anything by Michael Manning (Re the second,
obKiddieWarning: go 'way, kid, it's bad for ya. Come back when you grow up, I'll sell you a _case_.)?
Two good benchmarks for the issues you raise. Am I being genderfluid to be transgressive? Or is my lability in these
matters a change to explore what _else_ in my own strange imprinting could use a good looking at?

Also, "claiming [one's] body" is part of the cultural acceptance of tattoos and minor accepted bodymods today, beyond
the ooh-Mom-Britney-has-a-navel-ring-and-she-works-for-Disney factor.

Me, I want animated tats that plug into my physiology somehow.
