I’m not the biggest fan of recycling other people’s writing, but I do like to pass along things I find thought-provoking and important. I came across this Huffington Post article by Simon Mortiz, I was absolutely floored by its scope.
As a gay man, I find it thought-provoking and entirely relevant to the world we live in. But, I hope there is a lesson we can all learn from Moritz’s argument about gender and the role it plays (and how it dictates) all our lives.
I’m not interested in rehashing the last 25 years of progressive gender theory here (though who doesn’t love a good Butler read), though I am going to include this link as well, to a Ted Talk by Eve Ensler that one reader attached to the Huff Post article.
