Not just 'his' and 'hers': deep thoughts on gender

LA Johnson

Think about some of the ways we describe gender in our society. Some terms have fallen by the wayside, like "man's man" and "ladies' man," but we still put a fair amount of stock into binary thinking on gender.

Should we? Are you as "manly" or "ladylike" as your contemporaries? Kathryn Bond Stockton broadens our horizons in a book in the MIT Essential Knowledge Series simple called Gender(s).

Body parts are not the only indicator of gender; we explore this and much more in our chat with the author.
