    This is a collection of essaysstories by people who don't fit into the neat packages of 'male' and 'female' A number of them defy any labels while others identify by their gender or sexual orientation but aren't quite what you'd expect from that labelI did find it all interesting but there was a lot discussion of sex than I was expecting It gives the impression that gender is all about or mostly about sex Not a lot of asexual voices in here for one thingIt's also a little inaccessible wait bad term scratch that term There are a number of references to people places events and a lot of terms and acronyms that the writers and editors just expect you to know It seems to be written with the LGB if not even also T community in mind Now I'm not ignorant but there were a number of things that went over my head completely And it took me a minute to figure out what GB meantThere are some really good ones in here A few I even half identified with But even though I didn't identify with any of them fully you sort of glean that it's okay that you don't Because most of these writers are trying to carve their own path amongst all the labelsWeirdly I kept thinking this was published in the early 90's But it was 2002 I think I kept having to remind myself that it really wasn't that old Still a lot has changed in even 8 years Resources and information and community are a lot easier to find on the Internet nowI'd like to see another anthology like this aimed at teens maybe More current Less sex More diversity of voices
