In 2014, Maia Kobabe, who uses e/em/eir pronouns, thought that a comic of reading statistics would be the last autobiographical comic e would ever write. At the time, it was the only thing e felt comfortable with strangers knowing about em. Now, Gender Queer is here. Maia's intensely cathartic autobiography charts eir journey of self-identity, which includes the mortification and confusion of adolescent crushes, grappling with how to come out to family and society, bonding with friends over erotic gay fanfiction, and facing the trauma of pap smears. Started as a way to explain to eir family what it means to be nonbinary and asexual, Gender Queer is more than a personal story: it is a useful and touching guide on gender identity--what it means and how to think about it--for advocates, friends, and humans everywhere.… (mais)

So, so good. Immediately became one of my favorite graphic novels. Definitely reminiscent of Alison Bechdel memoirs, though a tad more emotional and less cerebral. ( )

3.5. An interesting reading experience; Kobabe is someone whose gender resembles my own in some ways, especially at first glance/to strangers, and the points of overlap and the stronger points of divergence made certain parts of this hit harder and others, conversely, sort of slide off of me. But more than my personal gender-related reading experience, this book didn't feel quite finished; there were many moments that felt like the author uncovered something big and potentially difficult, and instead of exploring it, e left it there and moved on. I didn't need every nuance exhaustively explored on the page, but I want them to feel as if the author has explored them somewhere, and brought that understanding back to the work.
On the other hand, I suspect that part of why conservatives are incredibly panicked about this book is because it is an approachable, easy read that doesn't dive as deeply or messily into the teeming world of gender and sexuality as it could--it's a solid starting point. That has value. ( )

Courageously opened and honest sharing of the author's journey to finding who and what e is. I appreciate er brave attempt to explain that struggle, and feel grateful that e was willing to share it with the world - bravo ( )

This memoir is an insightful glimpse into the confusion, ambivalence and, ultimately, joy experienced by the genderqueer author. The illustrations and descriptions of gender dysphoria are unsettling, but that's what dysphoria feels like. Growing breasts, menstruating and undergoing gynecological exams are uncomfortable for cisgendered girls -- imagine what it feels like to someone who doesn't identify as a girl. Common Sense Media has rated this book as 16 years+ and I'd agree with that. While the sexual content is not presented in an arousing manner, it is quite frank and definitely not for children. ( )

(Starred Review:) A book to be savored rather than devoured, this memoir will resonate with teens, especially fans of Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home and Mason Deaver’s I Wish You All the Best. It’s also a great resource for those who identify as nonbinary or asexual as well as for those who know someone who identifies that way and wish to better understand
 
This heartfelt graphic memoir relates, with sometimes painful honesty, the experience of growing up non-gender-conforming. . . . Intermixed are lighthearted episodes relating Kobabe’s devotion to LGBTQ-inspired Lord of the Rings fan fiction and hero worship of flamboyant ice-skating champion Johnny Weir. Kobabe is a straightforward cartoonist who uses the medium skillfully (if not particularly stylishly), incorporating ample cheery colors, with a script that’s refreshingly smooth and nondidactic for the topic. This entertaining memoir-as-guide holds crossover appeal for mature teens (with a note there’s some sexually explicit content) and is sure to spark valuable discussions at home and in classrooms.
