"I know I'm not a man . . . and I've come to the conclusion that I'm probably not a woman, either. . . . . The trouble is, we're living in a world that insists we be one or the other." With these words, Kate Bornstein ushers readers on a funny, fearless, and wonderfully scenic journey across the terrains of gender and identity. On one level, Gender Outlaw details Bornstein's transformation from heterosexual male to lesbian woman, from a one-time IBM salesperson to a playwright and performance artist. But this particular coming-of-age story is also a provocative investigation into our notions of male and female, from a self-described nonbinary transfeminine diesel femme dyke who never stops questioning our cultural assumptions. Gender Outlaw was decades ahead of its time when it was first published in 1994. Now, some twenty-odd years later, this book stands as both a classic and a still-revolutionary work--one that continues to push us gently but profoundly to the furthest borders of the gender frontier.… (mais)

Assigned reading from a queer studies class I took, I've only read a few chapters of this and would like to revisit the rest of the text. Someday ...

Bornstein has some very interesting things to say about her personal journey, but I struggle with the format of the book and her writing style.

I had to dissect my attitudes and history to work through this book, and I think it's good reading for anybody studying gender - or just anybody. The final third, a play, was sort of a dessert I guess, akin to DVD extras. I enjoyed the entire book. ( )

I read the 2016 reissue (or rather, I listened to Bornstein narrating the 2016 reissue), which I know was substantially revised based on changes in trans theory and thought over the last few decades. I found it hugely entertaining and thought-provoking. She's a fantastic narrator and I truly appreciate her puzzlement and confusion over sex and gender and what all of it even means. It seems from reading other reviews that her sections on feminist theory and gender as a class system are new to this edition? And if that's the case, I recommend reading the 2016 version rather than the earlier one(s). ( )

Kate Bornstein is so incredibly charming. This book is charming. But I'm already sold on most of what she is trying to convince me, uh... mainly "Let's not be defined by gender because it sucks being confined to stereotypes and anyway it's crazy." Agreed! Uh... now what?

But that question, "now what?" is difficult for this book to answer because it is an incredibly 90s book. Which I didn't think was too long ago but man, this book is nearly 20 years old. So "now" was 20 years ago. OMG i am so old. As a result the book's revolutionary tone strikes me more as a relic of its time than anything passion rousing. Man, time's an asshole.

She really shines when she talks about her personal experiences, which is why I much prefer her memoir, [b:A Queer and Pleasant Danger: The True Story of a Nice Jewish Boy Who Joins the Church of Scientology and Leaves Twelve Years Later to Become the Lovely Lady She is Today|12651419|A Queer and Pleasant Danger The True Story of a Nice Jewish Boy Who Joins the Church of Scientology and Leaves Twelve Years Later to Become the Lovely Lady She is Today|Kate Bornstein|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1333579428s/12651419.jpg|17765085]. In fact, reading that book before this one really helped me understand what she was trying to get across better. ( )

first things first: I keep trying to integrate my life. I keep trying to make all the pieces into one piece. As a result, my identity becomes my body which becomes my fashion which becomes my writing style. Then I perform what I've written in an effort to integrate my life, and that becomes my identity, after a fashion.
