Vanessa Cisneros

      Vanessa Cisneros

   My passions are numerous and vary from eradicating the world of neo-liberalism to avocados with balsamic vinegar. This particular paper deals with the passion that holds the most weight for me. It involves the most intimate of homes that any of us will ever know: our bodies. Our bodies can feel as comfortable and lavish as a mansion or as foreign and unsettling as a run down hotel. This is not the sort of home that we have the privilege of blue-printing since childhood and then erecting with our steel titan father. Rather it's the house that just happens to be available at the time of our birth whether we would have chosen it for ourselves or not. Unfortunately our bodies come along with socially prescribed meanings for how we are told to experience the world. This paper questions what we have been told about gender as well as whose obligation it is to continue the questioning and prompt change.
