Document Summary

En 2012 professor terry goldie feb 16, 2011. Bornstein proposed that culture, rather than creating roles for naturally gendered people, was creating gender out of the roles people played. Bornstein, who often uses nongender specific personal pronouns, raises the questions of whether there can be any position beyond gender . S/he refuses to be categorized and place on either side of the gender divide. In art and life, bornstein aims for real-world gender fluidity on a day to day basis. Gender terrorists are not the drag queens, the butch dykes, the men on roller skates dressed as nuns. Gender terrorists are not the female to male transsexual who s learning to look people in the eye while he walks down the street. Gender terrorists are not the leather daddies or back-seat betties. Gender terrorists are not the married men, shivering in the dark as they slip on their wives panties.
