Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This updated edition of Bornstein's formative My Gender Workbook (1997) provides an invigorating introduction to contemporary theory around gender, sexuality, and power. The original is a classic of modern transgender theory and literature and, alongside Bornstein's other work, has influenced an entire generation of trans writers and artists. This revised and expanded edition extends that legacy, offering an accessible foundation for examining gender in the reader's life and in the broader culture while arguing for the dismantling of all forms of oppression. The workbook format — playful and inviting while still challenging — allows Bornstein to present involute concepts in a gentle, straightforward tone. Every bit of theory is paired with exercises and quizzes, connecting abstract ideas to daily realities. For fans of the original, Bornstein's new material merits a fresh read, drawing from other writers and activists, engaging with thriving digital communities, and including expanded sections on sexuality and intersections of oppression. An immense amount of progress and debate has occurred over the past 15 years — Bornstein highlights that attention to those conversations is invaluable not only for transgender people, but for anyone who seeks a more honest understanding of their place in the world.

My New Gender Workbook is a thorough and informative guide to gender identity. Bornstein guides the reader on a journey of reflection and self-discovery with plenty of humor along the way.
