My Disability is

By GL Meisner

My disability is…
My disability is my sexuality

At least according to the critics

I can’t focus on one person
I can’t stay in a relationship for long

My disability is my sexuality
I swivel my head at every shiny
Any voice overrides my attention

My disability is my sexuality
will grow out of it
I am ignored in discussions about it in the
wider community

My disability is not my sexuality
My disability is ADHD
My sexuality is bi
These are not the same thing

GL is a trans woman living with her wife and kids in Minnesota.
