Hey, y’all. I was hoping to get a little help with something. I know I’ve talked about my boyfriend on here before, and about how he wants to understand gender, specifically non-binary gender, better. He was raised in a very conservative household where anything straying from the male-female was regarded as “socialist propaganda” and strongly dismissed, and it wasn’t until just a few years ago that the concept of gender theory was even available to him. Now, he’s very respectful of gender identity and he would never intentionally misgender someone because he’s not a dick, but he feels that he would benefit from understanding the issues surrounding gender in addition to accepting them.
He and I have had countless discussions on the subject. We tend to agree on most things and we generally reach the same conclusions, but our processes for arriving at those conclusions are different. He’s very intelligent, but we think differently. I’m a very abstract and theoretical thinker, but he is more concrete. It makes for some awesome discussions (y’all should come over for dinner sometime), but it also means that the sources I read to learn about and understand gender theory, those that use very theoretical and abstract language and points, are not helpful to him.
So, this is where you lot come in. You curious, brilliant people. I am looking for good articles or journals or even books on gender theory that are helpful to a concrete mind. Or, if any of my non-binary followers are willing, someone to sit down and patiently have a conversation with the man. Send me sources!
