Video: Destroy your binder

A fantastic woman named Kat made a video in which she talks about the dysphoria she feels about her breasts and then cuts off her binder as a symbol of her commitment to honor herself. This is a must-watch video for anyone interested in females with dysphoria.

Kat’s Tumblr is here, and thanks very much to This Soft Space for the fantastic post about not binding anymore.

  1. Kat breaks my heart and I totally relate. I never “got” femininity and therefore was unable to perform it. My body is short and curvy and busty so there was no way to pull off cool androgyny. It’s hard to move through the culture when there are so few acceptable ways to look. Let’s fix it for the next generation. Kat is cute and strong and clearly smart and that’s what she should see when she sees herself.

  2. Wow. Powerful stuff. I’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs with my body as well. I blame the patriarchy. Wanda Sykes does an awesome bit about the pressure on women to look a certain way. I think I’ve mentioned it before but what the heck? We can always use a good laugh. Don’t abuse yourselves ladies, just fight the patriarchy.
