Body of Work: Introduction

In reading what people, especially cis people, have written about trans people, especially transsexual people, I've been struck by the role the body is both front and centre and yet ignored, invisibilised, or erased.  I mostly mean the trans body, but also the cis body.  To me embodiment (by which I mean "being with a body") is an important part of trans, and cis, life and experience.  So I'll soon be starting an indefinite series of posts about bodies, particularly my body (because I'm the one I know best).  I suspect I might repeat what other people have said, but I'll see if I can't also be somewhat original and definitely personal when talking about my body.  I hope it'll be useful to people besides me.
