Nobody Passes: Rejecting the Rules of Gender and Conformity Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nobody Passes is a collection of essays that confronts and challenges the very notion of belonging. By examining the perilous intersections of identity, categorization, and community, contributors challenge societal mores and countercultural norms. Nobody Passes explores and critiques the various systems of power seen (or not seen) in the act of "passing." In a pass-fail situation, standards for acceptance may vary, but somebody always gets trampled on. This anthology seeks to eliminate the pressure to pass and thereby unearth the delicious and devastating opportunities for transformation that might create.

Mattilda, aka Matt Bernstein Sycamore, has a history of editing anthologies based on brazen nonconformity and gender defiance. Mattilda sets out to ask the question, "What lies are people forced to tell in order to gain acceptance as 'real'." The answers are as varied as the life experiences of the writers who tackle this urgent and essential topic.

Review:

"Startlingly bold and provocative." Howard Zinn

Review:

"There's an emerging new wave of sex and gender revolutionaries. Mattilda has performed the Herculean task of gathering all my favorite smart, irreverent, talented, fierce, funny, and fabulous people together in one place." Kate Bornstein

Review:

"Smart, sassy, and long overdue....What a breath of fresh air!" Susan Stryker
