After a long time being gone, my will to draw finally return ed for me after my finals in college.
This drawing was my original idea of what is life: DNA, science, chemistry and all the organisms that exist.
The second image is made from a culture of genetic modified Escherichia coli and Rhodotorula glutinous that produces proteins (responsible for the pigmentation) such as fwyellow, red fluorescent protein and amilCP for blue. I made this in an extra class of agar art, and even thought is not really pretty because these microorganisms are uncontrollable and grow in unpredicted ways, I had a lot of fun making this so I decided to post anyways.
“Some feminists [and lesbian-feminists in the 1970s] rejected transwomen on the basis of their male-sexed bodies, dismissing their feminine gender identity altogether. Transmasculine individuals were rejected for their masculine gender identity - an identity that feminists understood as the transmen’s rejection of their own female-sexed bodies and feminine identification. In other words, transwomen were rejected because of their sexed bodies and transmen were rejected based on their gender presentation, an inconsistency few feminists recognized.” Trans-exclusionary feminism is rooted in the demonisation of the male and the masculine (read: what cis-normative society perceives as male and masculine). Instead, feminism needs to move away from the preoccupation of “who counts as a woman” and towards the construction of a better set of values in which gender loses its power of oppression. - Transmasculinity and Feminism: The Analytic Categories of Gender Identity and Expression by Liam Lair. https://www.academia.edu/4413051/Transmasculinity_and_Feminism
