This short and sweet audiobook offers a welcoming invitation from Alok Vaid-Menon, an Indian-American writer and performance artist, to learn more about gender and how to move beyond it. Vaid-Menon matter-of-factly explains the cultural systems that have shaped our perception of gender, and how they are rooted in power dynamics rather than in personal expression and identity. Their straightforward narration feels deeply warm as they dissect myths around gender and share their own experiences. Not overly intense in tone, Vaid-Menon uses deliberate pacing to indicate the gravity of the current situation surrounding gender identity. Their voice and perspective offer valuable lessons and stories on gender that are packaged in a pleasingly short yet complete-feeling audiobook.
