Ap smears Started as a way to explain to eir family what it means to be nonbinary and asexual Gender ueer is than a personal story it is a useful and touching guide on gender identity what it means and how to think about it for advocates friends and humans everywhe. Gender ueer is a memoir comic by Maia Kobabe with a title that signals the desire to reach out to others I think of similar non binary inclinations or commitments In this still relatively new moment of non binary pronoun usage to signal identity Kobabe uses the Gayatri Spivak system of e em eir E also identifies as asexual though e does have a kink or two For part of the book Kobabe identified as bi but really e does not want to be either a girl or boy so e s just for the sake of identification not trans or have any sexual relationships with others though we learn e tried Eir ueer sister at one point told em she thought Maia was genderless and this might be something e would still agree with not sure Eir family and friends have all been very supportive it seemsI had to look up the difference between the non binarygender ueer and gender fluid which is about fluctuating between genders or being flexible about it allKobabe is shy secretive non confrontational so it seems like a particular act of courage for someone like em to write such a book to share her story though probably for others on the road to their own journies than even for em How m I doing on the pronoun usage kids I m a cis gendered dude of a certain age I will admit I am still learning and had to go over this several timesNot that I think this book describes a phase but I have the sense that Kobabe will think somewhat differently about all these issues ten years from now which is not to say e will suddenly become binary I just have this feeling that part of identity for many people seems to involve exploration just figuring things out Youth is a particular time for this of course maybe for some people it happens later Until this book made me think hard about it I hadn t realized how many people I know that are probably gender ueer I like the art I like knowing eir story I guess the only issue I have with the book is that titling it thus makes it appear less autobiographical and like a book that defines a topic which it does not It is about em and eir specific identity issuescommitments while introducing you to the idea generally of people being non binary But anyone who is gender ueer or knows someone who is ought to read this book I think You ll learn a lot I did I am glad it is being read by so many people already on Goodreads people largely seeming to love it

I needed this book 20 years ago Words can not describe how much I love this book It s a memoir about growing up and figuring out that one is non binary and asexual While I am not asexual I am non binaryand while I can look back on my life now and realize I have always been this way it took until age 30 to find the words To realize i m not a freak I m not wrong I m not confused any and if I had had the words and someone else saying me too I never would have had to be That i m not alone So many instances of OMG ME TOO Yes so much yes I feel this so hard Waitthere is a WORD for that And it s not just me It s a memoir of someone else s life but so much of it mirrored my own Not 100% obviously but a lot of it And it made me feel so incredibly seen I am still trying not to cry while writing thisand i m failing I m so glad to finally understand my struggle with gender that i ve had as long as I can remember To finally know i m not a freak alone wrong for feeling this way And that there are words Words can mean the entire world In some cases I did honestly say lucky you to privilege s e had that I did not Like on page 150 where e mention their lack of chronic pain and health issues I was born with vacterl association I am a medical nightmare have always had chronic pain getting worse as I get older and I always will But e is aware of that privilegeI would highly recommend this to well everyone Non binary Asexual ueer Wanting to learn It s a graphic novel It s easy and uick to read It was hard hitting for me because I personally related to a lot of it I needed this I got it from Hoopla and I will be buying a copy so I can hug it And re read itThough saying how much I related to this and having others read it feels like i m getting naked in front of everyone But oh well Because I am who I am And that s ok

    A memoir by someone so much like me yet at the same time so unlike me A few times I had to set it down and cry Be forewarned that I can't even pretend to aspire to objectivity and brace yourselves for a review that's going to be about me than about the book Or move along if that understandably doesn't appeal to youThe graphic novel format lends itself well to Maia Kobabe's story perhaps because it adds a playf
