Five Genders (or more)!

Hi, everyone. Here’s a link to Anne Fausto-Sterling’s article about the above subject.

genderbread.personAlso, fortuitously, a former student of mine — she and her wife were in a class I taught on social movements ages ago — just got back in touch with me, to tell me about her transition from male to female. Here’s her account of how that change affected her relationship to sports, which has a great deal of relevance to our conversations over the previous two classes.

This also reminded me of what a privilege it can be to teach and be part of so many different kinds of transitions — thanks for a great quarter.

Per G’s question in class on Tuesday, I’ll continue to maintain this blog after the class ends, so feel free to post links as you come across them or document your “agentive consumer action,” as Chan calls it.

And who knows — maybe I’ll be able to use this blog for another iteration of this class.
