"This is the first book I’ve ever read on this topic, and remarkable doesn’t even begin to cover it. It was also the first time I had been properly informed on what it means to be intersex, and what that entails. It was refreshing to read about gender identity and SO important to be reminded that gender is nothing more than a social construct. It taught me the pain you can cause someone by viewing them through heteronormative eyes, and how wrong that truly is. We cannot continue to view the world as just black and white, or those who inhabit it as male or female. Everyone needs to read this. EVERYONE!!!"
