Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe


I just put this book down and because of the last few words and my own hopes to go into teaching, my lasting thought is "no next times". Eir journey reminded me so much of my own, I saw myself in eir depiction of childhood, of choosing when and when not to come out, of the confusions of sexuality, especially when gender doesn't match up to what was written on the tin. And as an artist and writer I see myself in em and I see em as e is. So I think. No next times, life is too short for me to decide when and when not to be myself. I hope eir ability to be emself continues to grow exponentially and encapsulates every part of eir world...and I selfishly hope the same for myself.
