feminine and masculine

somehow a mixing up of being a woman and being feminine
i’m resisting the term ‘feminine power‘

i realize, that is because femininity is associated with weakness, less worth
feminine and being a woman is supposed to be one
masculine and being a man as well
generally speaking

since forever this fight
this inner sensation – i don’t have to be weak, just because i’m a woman
i’m not weak
i’m strong
i can think
i can talk about complicated things

on the other hand to be taken seriously ‘as a woman’
should i be feminine?
act feminine, fine, light, soft
like pink and skirts?

when i’m not
i’m too intense
i’m trying to make a point
i’m going against biology

or, when i’m ‘in my feminine power’
should i feel mother earth through me
the power of all mothers
be a confident woman


i am a woman
i have breast, a vagina, my menstruation, a wide hip
and i don’t want to change that

i like my female body
but i’m not interested in a identity assigned to me by ‚the society‘ (or subcultures)
not negative and not positive either

my body is my body

feminine and masculine
describe qualities
sometimes i feel feminine, sometimes i feel masculine

i don’t want to defend myself for either side
just because i’m a woman

#metoo is a trigger.
an atmosphere of men as predators
the debate mixing together rape and being looked at weirdly

i hear all these stories. and there are more women coming out with stories against men
and then the debate is around women and men
i do so much want to support those coming out with their stories, to heal, to get help and compassion
and i feel from my own life, that there is something about feminine and masculine
from women who should be feminine and men who should be masculine
in order to be accepted
in order to be ‚confirmed‘ in their identity
to be enough

what a pleasure, if we could just BE
and then learn how to ACT and RELATE
to the body
to others
to boundaries
