Any ambiguity or nonconformity, especially in relation to gender, conjurers terror. This is precisely why men are afraid of me. Why women are afraid of me, too.
But your fear is not only hurting me, it's hurting you, limiting you from being everything you could be.

An informative, reflective and challenging read that combines autobiographical stories with gender theory seamlessly. 

I would recommend this text to anyone. We can all learn from this and we should all learn from this, to be frank.

A very insightful and reflective piece of writing. It speaks of the patriarchal, cisnormative, and heteronormative structures that exist in our society, how they affected the author's life, and how we can dismantle them.
