Abstract

I wasn’t born a transwoman. This statement could be considered provocative, reactionary, subversive and/or trivial. It raises some questions about the temporality of trans narratives and bodies. If gender isn’t necessarily a trait, is the passage through linear heteronormative time is what determines it? If so, what makes us trans people? Do we change over time? Do we turn from one gender to another? From cis to trans? If so, what causes this shift?.
