Book cover for The Transgender Exigency: Defining Sex and Gender in the 21st Century
Though cultural understandings of what it means to be a woman or a man have gone through times of reconsideration and debate, it is arguably the case that at no other point in recent history have the definitions of “woman” and “man,” “male” ...more
J.R.R. Tolkien
“I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

John Darnielle
“I can feel it in the rotten air tonight/ In the tips of my fingers, in the skin on my face/ In the weak last gasp of the evening's dying light/ In the way those eyes I've always loved illuminate this place/ Like a trashcan fire in a prison cell/ Like the searchlights in the parking lots of hell/ I will walk down to the end with you/ If you will come all the way down with me”
John Darnielle

“A four-year-old runs over and asks me, “Are you a boy or a girl?” “No,” I say. “I’m not. I used to be a boy but I grew out of it.”
Bruce Cinnamon, The Melting Queen

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do

Mary Oliver

“A gender is like a language. You learn to speak one since the moment you’re born, so you never even notice its complexities, its weird rules and nonsensical exceptions. You don’t pay attention to how it works, you just use it every day. In every interaction. Even silently, in your head, when you’re alone. Everything is instinct. I imagine that being genderfluid is like learning a second language, or a third or a fourth or a fifth, and then speaking a hybrid pidgin version of all these different tongues, depending on which one has the best words to express how you feel.”
Bruce Cinnamon, The Melting Queen
