On Oct. 1st I’m going to be asking my sister Nat to help me to do a queer theology syncroblog since I am depressingly straight and normal (luckily my theological fascination with fantasy tends to make up for it)
Here are the questions I hope she will be answering…..
If you know someone who can enrich your perspective be sure to have them guest blog or interview them for Queer Theology!
Nat, in the Christian faith we are dedicated the job of “namers” in the world. To me naming has a lot to do with storytelling, naming things/storytelling helps us to real-lize our embodied experience…so I have a couple of questions about stories, being transsexual and embodiment…
What is your favorite series to read? How does it relate to your real life experience? Does it help to inform who you are/want to be?
The story God gives us is that we are both female and male in God’s image. Do you experience yourself as being in God’s image? (I like to think that transsexual’s have a more (w)holistic sense of what God’s image is)
How important was naming yourself as female? How did the naming effect the embodiment? Or how did the embodiment effect the naming? Was there an order to it, or did all come together?
What questions and wonderings do you have about God or the human existence that are informed by your being/experience/embodiment on earth?
