include trans people into its long-established systems, which are not as well developed to incorporate the non-binary. Accordingly, certain boundaries are drawn in order to contain trans experience within what the system can manage with its limited resources and knowledge on the subject. As a result, performance and performativity seem to be embedded in trans lives to navigate the heteronormative system. While it acts as a weapon against voyeurism towards the trans body when the “object of interest” reverses the power structure by taking control over what people look at, it is a twofold subject. The process harms authenticity and results in an enhanced emphasis on media representation and stage arts; therefore, this paper argues that trans performativity does not contribute positively to trans inclusion in society. Pointing out that performances exist on a different plane than our daily lives, the paper concludes that it puts a safe distance between trans and the heteronormative, therefore might end up promoting further polarization.
