“By gender freedom, I do not mean we all get to choose our gender. Rather, we get to make a political claim to live freely and without fear of discrimination and violence against the genders that we are. Many people who were assigned “female” at birth never felt at home with that assignment, and those people (including me) tell all of us something important about the constraints of traditional gender norms for many who fall outside its terms”

@ghost_bird I'm trying to figure out if I want to read it as I don't wanna give NS clicks...but I do love a good owning, especially from one of my early academic heroes.

@rhiannonrevolts I use a lot of ad blocking so I’m less worried about giving them clicks... and it is a good owning, if you can stand the awful interviewer.
