I care because I was born in a very small town, where nobody taught me that it was okay for me not to identify with dresses and dolls, and that in my adolescence it was okay to like girls. not being attracted to penis.
I also care because I am a psychologist and I realize that, at the university and in the clinic, queer theory has dominated the spaces, and the only voices heard are of gay men.
I have tried to speak about this in my Instagram and small groups, also I study a lot to feel more secure about my opinion. I have been afraid to talk about it at the university, afraid of being taxed as a transphobic.
I failed a master’s test because I wanted to talk about radical feminism and lesbian women, criticizing psychoanalysis.
It was very sad, and since then I have been trying to find some space where my writing will be welcome.
