Over at 2FACED1 we have this idea of a Transnational identity based on the share-ability of Pop Culture in an Internet-connected world, where huge amounts of people also have migrated/emigrated the last century. Pop Culture is, in many aspects, a phenomenon driven out of today's market capitalist economy, but we refuse to just see it as something trivial and dumbed-down for the masses. Instead we label it a common language, that at it’s best moments encourage people to create their own identity, without basing it on a specific ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class. We think Pop Culture contains important knowledge that just hasn't made it's way into the Universities - yet!
See the 2FACED1 State Of Mind Blog as a think tank for the ones skilled with the gift of being self aware enough to have a double folded view on identity.
A 2FACED1, two-faced-one is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is not a curse, it's a gift, because it helps you understand other people.
To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.
