Is Gender Fluid?
When we are born we are assigned a biological gender based on our physical anatomy, generally known as our 'sex'. But why do some people experience such antagonism between their biological sex and their inner identity? Is gender something we are born with or is it something we do? Does our expression of gender come from an innate trait, or is it something that develops as we grow? The relationship between gender and sex is extremely complicated and this brilliant little book makes a good stab at breaking it down. The book is designed with "quick-recognition text hierarchy" which means that paragraphs are prioritised using different font sizes. So you can either read an overview in half an hour or if you set aside a couple of hours, you'll be able to read the entire book and get both a well-balanced overview and a detailed comprehension of individual concepts. Broken up into 4 chapters, the book covers Gender as an Expression of Biological Sex, Gender as a Social Construct, Gender Diversity and Gender Activism.
