1. Anima (I & II)

The Woman I am no mirror can see,
My breast are still small and my voice is so deep.
The Woman I am unable (she cannot) feel love,
I wish to cut my genitals and feed them to the dogs.
The woman I am prepared to receive the pain.
The needles shall burn only the ugly remains.
Suppression is impossible, I must live it out,
My true self is female how could I ever doubt...

    General CommentThis little piece makes perfect sense if you know that the singer is transsexual (or is it transvestite? I'm hopeless at distinguishing the two, sorry.). In fact, this is one of the most obvious parts by this genius.

    General Commentan·i·ma
    n.
    1. The inner self of an individual; the soul.
    2. In Jungian psychology:
    a. The unconscious or true inner self of an individual, as opposed to the persona, or outer aspect of the personality.
    b. The feminine inner personality, as present in the unconscious of the male. It is in contrast to the animus, which represents masculine characteristics.

    the 2.b meaning is the answer. Anna Cantodea is a men with feminine soul.

    It's a little sad hear she singing "I wish to cut my genitals and feed them to the dogs" but that's her feeling for herself body.
