A young girl exploring her place in the world attempts to slip into the identity of a saint. A woman bruised by rape culture rewrites her identity. A devoted skeptic experiences genuine conviction.
These scenarios and more are the focus of Sorting Myself: a testament to the human experience.
What if the gender roles were reversed, and suddenly,
the world was no longer a safe place
What if a male stranger should fear me
on the streets at night,
the New Female Predator,
and his gut instinct
was to gird his balls
like women do with their attractiveness,
so as not to make himself
What if men were taught
that Fear is the new Sexy,
that involuntary arousal
is code for "Yes Please,"
and his gender alone
is his own personal Armageddon?
What if it had been
who opened Pandora's box?
