It's a series of essays written by different men, with different backgrounds, of different gender profiles, all about what it's like in our society for women, men, women who used to be men, men who used to be women and others. I found the essay by the fellow who studies pornography to be interesting, and the essay by the young filmmaker covering spring break in FL as well. In fact, I really liked and benefited intellectually from every word. Each was from a point of view that otherwise would be inaccessible for me--and to me that's a huge gift.
What I found was these were fascinating works. Excellently edited or curated---by a woman, if that matters.
(I fully and freely admit that being older, I could actually have used some help in the vocabulary/acronym department as I was sometimes wondering whether every author was using the same term(s) to mean the same gender-ID/experience/behavior/etc., or whether I understood correctly. When I was a kid, for example, 'gay' meant happy and 'queer' meant delightfully eccentric....so, yeah...help!)
First, to anybody who is interested in the subject matter and second, to anybody who is uncomfortable with the subject matter. Because there is simply NO better way to get to know people and their human truths than by 'reading' their thoughts. And seeing through their eyes.
