Human Centred Identity Politics (HCIP) is a new way of looking at things. Fed up with the social media battle over gender and identity I am currently building a new understanding of gender, sexuality, feminism and the whole gender question that is captivating so much attention right now. Using the integral maps developed by Ken Wilbur and many others I put ‘Human’ at the centre of the identity circle and move on from there. This allows a fresh perspective on difference and similarity, first seeing the common ground that we all share.
Understanding some of the many differing world views and contradictions that exist all the way through human culture and life is key to forming deeper and more secure identities. Growth and evolution are a key part of HCIP and looking to where evolution either has occurred or needs to occur will always serve to enlighten more.
The ‘trans narrative’, is not a one size fits all story, it is as individual as you or I, it invites ever deeper understanding of the human condition not a reinvention of biology. We are multi faceted creatures who exist on many different levels of being, biology, psychology, mythology and spirituality. The truth isn’t in one of these over all the others, the truth is in all four of them, and more, working together to create the unique (just like everybody else!;-) collection of possibly random events that is you, a human.
