  • I m liberal, ace, and genderqueer, and there is a lot of stuff I did not agree with in this book First of all, the way it s written is really only going to convince people who already are in this area of thought Anyone who is approaching these ideas for the first time, especially if they come from a conservative mindset, are not going to be moved by anything she has to say and on the contrary be repelled by most of it due to the way she presents it, just like how a Pride Parade Recap on tv repel [...]


  • Most of us think of gender as a mostly binary thing and we use it all the time divide into girls and boys, the gender gap in college admissions, why girls aren t going into computer science, etc This book will challenge your thinking of what gender is and look at all sorts of different aspects of gender Written by a transgender woman, the book is a mix of quizzes a la your favorite teen magazines and information about gender identity, sexual orientation, sex, and a whole lot It s a bit on the e [...]


  • Someone recommended this book to me a while ago and I just got around to giving it a look today, but I couldn t read it The author s style and tone is just utterly insufferable Look at me being all subversive and in your face and quoting Doctor Who It kind of feels like it was written by Tumblr.


  • I really enjoyed reading through the book Kate Bornstein writes in a very sweet and kind manner, which is really comforting when you are confused and worried about gender I learned new ways to look at the world, and not just in regards to gender Of course there were points where we disagreed, but Bornstein repeats through the book that everything is just theory and could easily be wrong Thus, the content of the book never seemed off putting.I feel grateful to have read the book at a time I truly [...]


  • I thought this was done decently and had some good info, but for me it was too cutesy too we re best buds, omg I do wish some of that had been dropped I also agree with a previous reviewer who did that this isn t going to change anyone s mind or make them THINK It s written for people who already have an interest or reason to investigate so for me, it didn t fulfill what I was quite v hoping for well thought out and well written, but not executed as week add it could have been I thought the best [...]


  • I enjoyed the beginning, especially how other voices were incorporated by way of contributed tweets, etc I largely skipped the quizzes it s a library book, so I m not going to mark it up , and eventually the redundancy and cutesy writing was too much for me I tried skipping through sections, but that was confusing.I think there are people who I d recommend it to with the expectation that they ll only reach 20%, and it d still help them There s plenty of good stuff in here, but maybe it could be [...]


  • The new gender workbook is excellent It really helped me to answer the question what is gender surprisingly hard to answer, right The book has helped me to understand my own identity and expression A must read for anyone in the trans spectrum, interested in gender theory, or just curious Easy to follow whether you re a novice or well versed in queer studies A Kate


  • Honestly Kate Bornstein is perfect and my role model in life and the sweetest soul and I feel so much better for having read this book That s the highest praise I can give a book, right there.


  • a really fun update to Kate Bornstein s classic text which includes great sidebars from the genderqueer world of twitter I m honored to have some of my tweets included in this book


  • Fun layout, cute graphics, but too many problematic aspects appropriation of native terms ie twibe , mock portrayals of religion, etc that prevents it from being any than 3 stars.


  • An important book for our time, one I would recommend to anyone who has reached the age of consent I don t pretend to understand every concept in here, or agree with them all, but I welcome the opportunity to stretch my thinking about gender For example, I like the idea of there being five components of gender gender assignment gender role gender identity gender expression and gender attribution I also like thinking of gender as the intersection of identity, power, and desire I like how the book [...]


  • As a gender neutral asexual ace who is also quiet and introverted, this book wasn t for me I found a lot of the quizzes and there are a lot difficult to answer mostly because they don t take aces into consideration and are mostly about sex or PDAs I m not into PDAs, not because I m afraid of what others will think, do, or say, but just because I m not into that kind of action, even at home in private.Don t get me wrong, aside from that aspect, I do like what she has to say, and I thoroughly enjo [...]


  • I read this for a college course, and while Bornstein presents privilege in an excellent way, the book is written at an insultingly low level and filled with patronizing, cutesy language I found it incredibly condescending The concepts are too complicated for children, but it reads like a children s book, other than all the references to kinky sex, references to pornography, and swearwords I really question what all that s got to do with gender theory.


  • I wanted to love this book, but I had a really hard time understanding how to apply some of the author s metaphors to my own life experiences The exercises are useful if your gender expression is already part of your radical praxis, but less so if you re just confused and trying to figure out the basics.


  • Because I m too UGH to articulate my thoughts right now I m just going to link this pretty accurate review Also, cultural appropriation and mock portrayals of religion is not something I am okay with.



  • Not sure what to thingk Has its cool parts, has its awful parts, wasn t particularily helpful to me, but still mostly a nice read


  • Didn t work for me I appreciate having to read something outside my normal interest but it s presentation did not connect with me Seemed hyperbolic.





  • Glad I read this, especially for her differentiation between sex gender and a few of the exercises, but by the end I had lost my interest.


  • I m thinking about using this book for a Psych of Women class I m teaching next semester.e of the affordable price Other suggestions are most welcome.
