Genderqueer and Non-Binary Genders
Genderqueer and Non-Binary Genders | Meg-John Barker, Christina Richards, Walter Pierre Bouman
2 posts | 1 reading
This book addresses the emerging field of genderqueer or non-binary genders - that is, individuals who do not identify as male or female. It considers theoretical, research, practice, and activist perspectives; and outlines a basis for good practice when working with non-binary individuals. The first section provides an overview of historical, legal and academic aspects of this phenomenon. The second section explores how psychotherapeutic, psychological and psychiatric theory and practice are adapting to a non-binary model of gender, and the third section considers the body related aspects, from endocrinology to surgery. This work will appeal to a wide readership, from practitioners working with non-binary individuals - including psychologists, surgeons, social workers, nurses, psychiatrists, endocrinologists, psychotherapists and counselors, lawyers, and healthcare workers - to researchers interested in the study of gender identities, to students and gender activists.

Lots to think about.
Does your gender ever feel like a riddle?
“I‘m not non-binary, but I‘m genderqueer. I‘m not cis, but people assume I am. What am I??”

Happy Pride. Question everything. Assume nothing. Ask your femme-presenting loved ones how you can lift them up and keep them safe. Tell your masc-presenting loved ones that you see them and you value their lives. Are your people different from you in any way? If not, why not?

I think this is my next nonfiction read, related to work but also ponderings an interests that I have and want to expand my thinking, especially how genderqueer non-binary identities emerge or present through childhood, and knowing the best way to support.

Also, I‘m pretty excited that the new emojis will include ‘people,‘ not just male and female people. I‘m pretty sure I‘m going to use this one a lot! And waffles!
