A little relic from when we thought this newfangled internet thing would save us from gender. A fun story, it leads to interesting reflections about what has an hasn't changed about how folks interact with the information highway and their sense of self. A time when "online" had to be defined in a glossary in the back! When a broadly defined GSM Coalition only named LGBT identities! When cybering sparked rebellion! Or maybe it still does? Spoiler alert, I doubt it.
(Pairs well with A Mind Apart)

a quirky look at the fluidity of gender through the (at the time) new world of the internet - fan of kate bornstein? don't miss this early work!

I thought this book was an exciting way to explore gender identity issues, and the romance in it was very adorable. It was repetitive at times due to its form, but it was still an interesting read.
