This is Sydney's tattoo.
My tattoo is from existentialist philosopher and feminist Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex. The French "on ne naît pas femme: on le devient" translates in English to "one is not born, but becomes woman." In both The Second Sex and, more explicitly, this quote, de Beauvoir applied the (during her time) male-dominated field of existential thinking to women, influencing both the philosophy and feminism. My tattoo is both a tribute to the groundbreaking feminist theory of de Beauvoir and a reminder that identity is fluid and people have the freedom to decide who they are to be.
