1992. Digital undream picture by Chris Wayan
I took dance for several years and felt a confusing mix of sexiness and fear. Showing off my body, seeing other bodies, flirting with other dancers, with the audience... my feminist education kept muttering "sex object" and the battered kid I was kept muttering "I object!"
I finally decided it's OK to be an object as long as you're also a subject.
What you don't want to be is an abject.
