Gender Games: Review

The Gender Games is without a doubt a big eye-opener, without really thinking we are led to believe a range of things and what gender really is, the particular part that struck me was the passionate talk regarding intersectional femininity and not excluding everyone who isn’t a white female. Besides this the bigoted people who believe trans woman are imposing on women’s culture…. This is absolutely ridiculous to me, women have a set of standards set by generations and media to how to conduct themselves, it’s not easy being a woman, not to take that away from men who are now being more vocal about toxic masculinity. However, the fight to be seen as equals with men is a continuing battle. Juno sets out to educate on the toxicity of how she as a gay man tried to be what was deemed ‘accepting’ of her role as a gay man.

I was not disappointed by the book. It is a complex minefield of a subject and it explained things in a way that anyone could understand. It gets the reader thinking about gender and how we are as a society. Boys play football and girls play with dolls and how we say to children about finding a boy to get married to if they’re a girl and Vice versa. It made me think about how I say things at school where I work and how I can change things for the future. 

Nathans Juno discovery stated in 2017 coming across ‘The Gender Games’ at the literature festival, afterwards, they did a book signing so I went to meet her to get my book signed (I’d already purchased the book beforehand). I couldn’t wait to read The Gender Games when I got home after my new-found knowledge from the amazing talk.
