Here’s a nod to my days when I was in my undergrad years, living in the capital of Wisconsin and living the good life or so I thought. I was definitely into learning about sexuality and gender. I voraciously read anything I could get my hands onto and eyes focused on within reason. But those days are gone (living the crazy life in my early 20s), but my thirst for going outside the lines has never really gone away or at least reading about it. If you don’t know about Kate Bornstein or any of the writers in this anthology, here is your chance. You need to have a general open mind when it comes to “gayness” and “gender.” If you adhere strictly by the two sexes (boy and girl) or gender (masculine and feminine), then this book isn’t for you. It delves into the “other” realities and thoughts adhered to and none fitting into the conventional identities. It’s basically a postmodern book written by people living in a postmodern world. As you can see, it’s a short book and a quick read. Pick it up and let me know what you think.
