Max's Reviews > Gender Failure
This book was pretty good, it just didn't really wow me. Spoon's essays jived with me more than Coyote's on the whole, but since I grew up as a queer trans kid in a really conservative prairie environment too that's probably to be expected. Coyote's essays also tended to repeat themselves a fair bit. Lots of focus on masculinities, which didn't really resonate with me, and while Spoon acknowledged in their intro that this book is necessarily limited to a white, western, butch (in Coyote's case)/formerly transmasculine (in Spoon's) perspective, there didn't seem to be a lot of reflection on that in the essays themselves. Still a good read, though, and I'm glad I picked it up at the library.
