What happens when your gender doesn't fit neatly into the categories of male or female? Even mundane interactions like filling out a form or using a public bathroom can be a struggle when these designations prove inadequate. In this groundbreaking book, thirty authors highlight how our experiences are shaped by a deeply entrenched gender binary. The powerful first-person narratives of this collection show us a world where gender exists along a spectrum, a web, a multidimensional space. Nuanced storytellers break away from mainstream portrayals of gender diversity, cutting across lines of age, race, ethnicity, ability, class, religion, family, and relationships. From Suzi, who wonders whether she'll ever "feel" like a woman after living fifty years as a man, to Aubri, who grew up in a cash-strapped fundamentalist household, to Sand, who must reconcile the dual roles of trans advocate and therapist, the writers' conceptions of gender are inextricably intertwined with broader systemic issues. Labeled gender outlaws, gender rebels, genderqueer, or simply human, the voices in Nonbinary illustrate what life could be if we allowed the rigid categories of "man" and "woman" to loosen and bend. They speak to everyone who has questioned gender or has paused to wonder, What does it mean to be a man or a woman--and why do we care so much?… (més)

I received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The good:

This is a collection of personal life stories by people who identify as nonbinary in some way. These people are a variety of identities, races, ages and assigned genders, with different opinions on transition and identity. What I really liked was that many, if not most of them are over 30 (with several over 50) which really goes against the idea that being nonbinary is just something young people made up. Also, while it is addressed that female-assigned nonbinary people seem to dominate in discourses, this book itself has many male-assigned people telling their own stories.

All in all, I loved the diversity in both writing styles and in experiences. From a Chinese mother getting English gendered pronouns wrong to pole dancing and Buddhist retreats, this collection had a lot to think about, and many parts that resonated with me.

The bad:

The lives of marginalised people are rarely easy. The stories here discuss (other than the expected transphobia and cissexism) suicide attempts, self-harm, miscarriage, drugs, graphic death threats, and more. In the entire anthology, there are only two stories that have any kind of content warnings, both for sexual assault. While I am really glad that these warnings were there, I was annoyed by them because they showed that the editors know warnings are necessary - they just... apparently didn't think anything other than sexual assault qualifies as triggering enough? I really wish content warnings were normalised.

There was one story that was by the parent of a nonbinary teen. This was already a little strange (the perspectives of parents can be important, but having only one in a collection otherwise full of nonbinary voices made it same out of place), but what really bothered me was that there's a part where the parent describes in detail private conversations by the teen, and... there is really no indication of how they read those conversations? Did their child show them willingly, or did the parent go through their messages? I couldn't really get over that question, and the chapter in general left me feeling uncomfortable. I think the collection really could have stood without that one. ( )
