challenging emotional sad


This collection is weirdly sexist. The stories are supposedly the words of people who are Trans, Enby, or Intersex, and they may well be. However it seems odd that so many of them have been through so much to actualise their true gender, and yet have not examined gendered stereotypes and prejudices in any way. Perhaps the author, who is cis, may have filtered which parts of these stories to include, to fit her own unconscious bias? 
These are also, for the most part stories of profound trauma. Again, I question the author’s choices, as to which stories to include. 
I was uncomfortable for much of this audiobook. I would suggest choosing a book that has been authored by a trans person instead of this one.
