Let me talk to you about books.

Specifically, one book. This book.

This book should be a best seller. This book should be required reading for graduating from high school. Before you get that diploma, you read this book.

This book deals with debunking “Neurosexism,” which is a very fancy term for all of that evolutionary psychology bullshit that people spill about those “brain differences” between boys and girls.

This book debunks such myths as:

  • Boys are better at math than girls
  • Women make crappy lawyers/business CEOs/etc, as their brains are not cut out for aggression.
  • Men make crappy counselors/primary school teachers/primary parents/etc, as their brains are not cut out for empathy.
  • MEN ARE BUILT FOR GOING OUT AND HUNTING WHILE WOMEN ARE BUILT FOR STAYING HOME AND BABYMAKING IT’S NOT SEXISM IT’S JUST BIOLOGY
  • And many other such myths.

Furthermore, this book covers topics such as: 

  • Neurosexism and gender perceptions in multiple races (as this is not a singularly white experience, just as the western world isn’t a singularly white experience)
  • Sex discrimination in the workplace, and how women are (or, more often, are not) allowed to behave
  • How science is used (badly) to support many of these claims
  • Experiences of trans* people, both through interviews and empirical studies.

AND FINALLY - It is all brilliantly researched, cited, compiled - and it’s easy to read! Cordelia Fine actually manages to be funny while writing this, which I think is important, because it makes all of this information infinitely accessible.

Delusions of Gender has reinforced what Oberlin taught me: The gender binary is stupid and arbitrary, and dangerous. And it is a self-perpetuating bias that needs to be addressed to be overcome.

Do you know about any media featuring bisexual men? I've seen a lot of bi women, which is fantastic, but I'm having a hard time figuring out male characters besides Oberyn Martell.

Bisexual characters are kind of our speciality since we both identify as bi so hopefully we can get you a nice list. Also, sorry for the wait for this answer we got it at about 3am so we wanted to get some sleep before doing the research for it. Alright so I’ll start you off and then Steph will add her bit :) Because this ask is really long we haven’t provided all of the links like we usually would so if there is something specific that you can’t find just let us know and we’ll do what we can.

If we’re including print media, there’s also:

  • John Constantine in Hellblazer has been a bisexual man for 20 years, although that’s being erased in the new TV series.
  • Not My Father’s Son is a “deeply personal, and deeply engaging” memoir by Alan Cumming about his relationship with his abusive father.
  • For young adult fiction about bisexual boys, try Boyfriends with Girlfriends by Alex Sanchez, Bi-Normal by M.G. Higgins, or Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith.
  • For fantasy, St. Vier in Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner is a bi man in a who is hired by aristocrats to fight their duels for them.
  • If dystopian science fiction is more your thing, Coda by Emma Trevayne is a thrilling example.
  • For historical fiction, The Two Hotel Frankforts by David Leavitt is a “Hemingway-esque” World War 2 era story, and A Wind of Knives by Ed Kurtz is a US-Civil War era story.
  • For yaoi manga that avoids the worst tropes of the genre and actually uses the word “bisexual” to describe the main characters, try Fake and Sleeping Moon.
  • For humor, How I Paid for College by Marc Acito is about a bi boy trying to pull a con to raise the money to go to Drama School

There’s a ton of Pan and Bi representation in the Kushiel series by Jacqueline Carey, though some of it’s BDSM oriented (at least, in the first trilogy). 

Reblogging for the extra recs :)

For this edition of our Art Focus feature, we present to you the work of Canadian artist Adam Lupton. Painted in oils, his portraiture oftentimes features multiple visages blurred together in a fragmented reality that seems to reflect the different struggles his subjects have with identity. Examples of this include different glimpses of a man dressing in drag and snapshots of another person putting on different masks
