I’m trying to get better about gender — not just equality, but really understanding the alternatives to boxing in other people based on my perceptions of gender. But it’s hard, right? It’s hard to think about gender in any other way than what we’ve been taught from childhood: Boys grow up to be men and girls grow up to be women. But it doesn’t have to be hard.
This talk covers biological sex and gender identity really well in the beginning. Feel free to start from there, but I’m going start you about two-thirds through (10:03), where he begins to talk about the aspect of gender we notice most: gender expression. It’s not all serious, I promise. There are some great laughs in there too.
