Chapter 2 introduces the term gyno-trauma to rearticulate gynecological trauma and emphasize the emotional and social pain caused by gynecology. It charts Black lesbians' negative affective experiences with intersectional preconceito to rethink the intertwined facets of redefined gynecological trauma. This chapter considers various modes of “staying in your body” (Cox 2015) and resistance, such as body-scanning practices of “sousveillance” (Browne 2015), to convey Black lesbians' activated social gaze and orientation to their bodies in gynecological spaces and interactions.
