Scapegoats & Chandeliers by Antonis Sideras
Please accept this publication as notice of my resignation from the full-time post of being a man.
I would like to inform you that I no longer identify with the gender that was assigned to me at birth, which is male. I now identify as a genderqueer person (synonymous to non-binary).
I would like to say that I have enjoyed being a part of your team, but that would be disingenuous. Being a man comes with a set of archetypes which are becoming obsolete in the 21st century. Having to measure up to masculinity and its expectations due to my appearance makes me deeply uncomfortable.
The hegemonic hierarchies western mankind created, were built by oppressing multiple groups of people based on their race, gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity and more, in order to accumulate wealth, power and status. The toxicity of such actions still poisons our lives. Resigning from masculinity is my way of prioritising my mental wellbeing, whilst playing my part towards building a world structured on equity, fairness and kindness.
I know that you might not understand nor agree with my decision, it is however mine to make.
