Marzano-Lesnevich | Define My Gender?

Today we’re reading Alex Marzano-Lesnevich’s New York Times opinion piece, “How Do I Define My Gender if No One Is Watching Me?” As you read their article, consider the following questions:

  • How does Marzano-Lesnevich’s pandemic experience free them from gender binaries? 
  • What is your response to Mx. Slarii’s argument: “I don’t think cis people understand how much their input weighs down on trans people, especially when it comes to transitioning”? 
  • Can you read this piece as a gender autoethnography? Why/not? 
  • How can this piece inform your autoethnography?
