Straight Boy/Queer Girl: a Memoir

 
9781502392503: Straight Boy/Queer Girl: a Memoir

Jonathan is just seven years old when his mother has a nervous breakdown and is hospitalized. He stands in the kitchen of a friend's house, where he will stay until his mother recovers, and examines his mind for anything he believes that can't be true. Jonathan feels like he should be girl, but girls don't have penises. It's time to learn how to be a boy. This insightful and entertaining memoir is both laugh-out-loud funny and heartbreaking. It follows Jonathan's story from early childhood into young adulthood, his struggles with his Catholic faith and internalized transphobia, and ultimately whether or not he will make a decision that will destroy his relationship with the only girl he ever loved. Straight Boy/Queer Girl is a page-turning coming or age story for anyone who has ever questioned the restraints of gender roles or the validity of transsexualism. It re-examines sexual identity and questions what it means to be straight or queer.
