Through revisiting their childhood and calling out the stereotypes that each of us have faced, Jacob Tobia invites us to rethink what we know about gender and offers a blueprint for a world free from gender-based trauma. Sissy takes you on a gender odyssey you won't soon forget. Writing with the fierce honesty, wildly irreverent humour, and wrenching vulnerability that have made them a media sensation, Jacob shatters the long-held notion that people are easily sortable into men and women and guarantees that you'll never think about gender - both other people's and your own - the same way again.… (mais)

I was lamenting that all the books I read by trans authors seem to be about being trans, which doesn't really serve me anymore, and this is no exception, but I think I liked it a lot more than other similar (memoir, about someone I've never heard of) books because I related less to it. always good to read about other experiences you know? and like as i read more of it i found myself relating more possibly because of that. Some of the prose is tacky but I think that was intentional and therefore forgivable. really interesting part was like reconciling christianity with being nonbinary, I found that angle really unheard of as an atheist reader and appreciated that perspective.

A memoir/coming-of-age story from a non-binary author that was assigned male at birth but from their earliest memories knew that wasn't accurate. There are chapters covering their futile attempts to fit in at multiple stages of young life, with a lot of focus on high school, college, and being part of a relatively liberal but still typically American suburban Christian church. I loved it, and finished the whole thing in a few days. It's a great read if you or someone in your life has a gender identity that doesn't fit with the world around them, if a bit more in the venting category than having The Answer to make it all work.

Otherwise, chances are that this won't necessarily resonate as much with you if you didn't share something with Tobia that I do: we both went to college at Duke, and less than ten years apart. Prime example: one of the many strange intricacies of being a Duke student is that as a graduating senior you can apply to be a (non-voting and non-really mattering, but still) member of the Board of Trustees. One undergrad and one grad student per year get to do this, with finalists chosen by a student vote. I applied back in 2005, and it was a super interesting if all-consuming process. Tobia got much closer than I ever did, so I relished their stories of the interviewing and campaigning processes, and especially what that was like for an out queer candidate. ( )

I loved this book. It managed to be both laugh out loud funny, and also have moments of profound wisdom. I would recommend it to everyone. ( )

I was excited to read a memoir from a person that identified as non-binary. I was hoping to read something a bit more enlightening, but what I got was an ear/eye full of self-aggrandizement. Tobia had some occasional bits of wisdom to offer (his take on the hidden meaning behind "dress professionally" was a gem!). However, I truly don't think this memoir had much to offer other than a very rare nugget of wisdom sprinkled here and there.

In this memoir, Tobia comes off as incredibly self-absorbed. Any perceived slight, oversight or lost opportunity seemed to be blamed on a gender-based injustice, when instead what deserved a hard look was the authors own sense of entitlement. I do not say this to belittle some of Tobia's more difficult experiences trying to be themselves while facing suppression. Certainly, those instances existed. Unfortunately, that message could not be heard over the loud sound of them tooting their own horn. ( )

Everyone should read this memoir. The author eviscerates the lazy way many of us who imagine we are enlightened look at gender nonconforming and trans people: born into the wrong body, have surgery, live happily ever after. The tone is light for the most part, but the message is heavy and important. ( )

For all the girls,
who deserve power
instead of cruelty.

For all the boys,
who deserve gentleness
instead of violence.

For all of us in between,
for all of us outside,
for all of us beyond.

And for my grandmother,
whose brooch sparkles on the lapel closest to my heart.

(footnote) I know I already said that God is a trans woman, so I think it's worth clarifying: when God isn't busy being a woman, she can also take the form of a gay man, a trans dude, or butch lesbian. God's genderfluid like that, praise be unto Her/Him/Them!
