Lecture by Genesis: "Breaking Sex"

4pm / Free
"Pandrogeny is not about gender, it’s about union. The union of opposites. One way to explain the difference is very easy: with transgender people the man might feel that he’s trapped... in a woman’s body, or a woman trapped in a man’s body — whereas in Pandrogeny you’re just trapped in the body. So Pandrogeny is very much about the union of opposites, and, through that reunion, the transcendence of this binary world and this illusory, polarized social system." - Genesis Breyer P-Orridge
Excerpt from "Breaking Sex," by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge, 2003:
(S/HE IS HER/E)
This is the final war, a jigsaw
A war to re-possess your SELF.
There is NO gender anymore
Only P-Androgeny is divine.
Sexuality is a force of nature that cannot be contained. Get up.
Stand together in perfecting union,
Join and love equally the man and the woman separated at b-earth inside you,
Their first cries for justice …PANDROGENY!
Re-united as one
Identity is your only possession,
as a being possessed
Re-possess your SELF,
Be possessed by YOUR self,
Any SELF, every SELF you ever dreamed of,
Every SELF you were ever afraid of. GET UP!
Stop this war of limitations,
Now YOU own yourself.
Your own YOU own.
Now it’s YOU.
We are ultra-genetic terrorists.
One man is another man or woman.
EVERY MAN AND WOMAN IS A MAN AND WOMAN
There is a time and place for everything indecent.
End your social and sexual misery, taste the sweet electricity of PANDROGENY!
“This time around you can be anybody”
You were in your mother’s womb for forty-nine days an androgyne.
Who chose your gender?
Only by YOU ending this separation, Returning to that first pure state can real freedom begin. When all are but one sex, one species.
This is not about becoming an Other,
This is about returning to a state of perfect union.
