Bornstein, putting on the mask of a delightfully tongue-in-cheek workbook, leads the reader through the forest of genders until they arrive to the clear lake of genderlessness -- or something else. Wherever the reader will end up rethinking gender in general and their own gender in particular, the trip there will be worth it alone.
Kate Bornstein's 1994 book of autobiographical theory, Gender Outlaw
, drew a line in the sand about the whole boy/girl thing. "Who needs it?" America's most active transgender activist questioned. Now, in My Gender Workbook
, Bornstein has assembled a collage of simple exercises, quizzes, puzzles, and essay questions that systematically break down our ingrained ideas about how women and men--and whoever is in between--should act. Bornstein's breezy, "hey, let's all discover who we might really be" style works to make this potentially threatening material accessible and even intriguing to almost all readers. Just glance down, check out who--or what--you thought you were, and get ready to answer a few questions. Review
