Once upon a time there was a huge furry monster called Fluffy.
To be hybrid and fluid
to be a soft beast, a fragile monster, a vulnerable cyborg
an enormous and unapologetic alliance of deviation.
Fluffy means to mutate
to be in a process of becoming with … me
and take care of each other while we are transforming to the unknown.
To respect our boundaries and be aware of our privileges while we are brushing the pain away.
To have the choice to be genderless, ageless and speciesless.
To not define but redefine
and create new narratives together.
To embrace alternative forms of intimacy and family
to make kinships with the non-human
to transition between genders and kingdoms of classification:
I am the knight-princess of the giant amoebas of chaos. I like to wear high heels on my thousand pseudopods. I don’t have a skin but a flexible membrane that allows me to change shape from one moment to the next. My family consists of all the unfaithful offspring of the goddesses of the abyss:
The witches that you couldn’t burn
The hairy fairies
The not-so-little mermaids
Τhe pregnant masculine seahorses
The rebel monsters who were left out at school,
The alienated aliens who were thrown out of their planet
The disorderly dogs who have been kicked out of home
The heroines who were overshadowed by super-men
The gossip fishwives – annoying daughters, notoriously loud and fouled-mouthed vixens
The hysterical pussycats who are smashing patriarchy with their tentacular paws
The vulnerable evils
The forgotten hags
The real crying crocodiles
The dragons who want to become princesses
The bearded beauties
The failed knights
The pansexual albino cockatoo parrots
The huge furry monsters who are longing for love and care
we are safeguarding the ageless non-existence of life and death
Re-writing history and reclaiming our place in eternity
Co-existing with radical tenderness
hacking the surface of the skin
reshaping the memory that is inscribed upon it
deconstructing the necropolitical playgrounds of our bodies
brushing, pushing, cuddling, healing
taking care of every hair our collective furry body has
remembering, remembering, remembering
It’s so FLUFFY I am NOT gonna die!
