“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 wow Judith Butler is so eloquent. I makes me want to read her book. Thanks for sharing this article.
@conatus Glad you liked it - but be warned: Gender Trouble is very good, but it’s very dense and academic. Not easy reading.
