“Does being a female constitute a ‘natural fact’ or a cultural performance?”

-Judith Butler, Gender Trouble

As I have grown, I have come to question my role in the female world to which I was born and the one I have been molded into.

I do not believe in performing ritualistic impracticalities yet I partake in them.

I use my body as a canvas to challenge the cultural and societal ideals forced upon women. Does the constant bombardment of media shape us into characters performing for our culture, and if so, where is the freedom in that confinement?
