Sissy A Coming of Gender Story

Ive feminismFrom Jacob's Methodist childhood and the hallowed halls of Duke University to the portrait laden parlors of the White House Sissy takes you on a gender odyssey you won't soon forget Writing with the fierce honesty wildly irreverent humor and wrenching vulnerability that have made them a media sensation Jacob shatters the long held notion that people are easily sortable into men and women Sissy guarantees that you'll never think about gender both other people's people's and your own the same way agai. Jacob Tobia s memoir focusing on their experience growing into their identity as a genderueer person was possibly the perfect book for this present moment Covering their life from early childhood to the end of college this memoir dives deep into the kaleidoscope of ueer identities and comes up with the refreshing reminder that you don t have to choose just one In all the memoir covers the little moments that take place with friends and family and strangers and ourselves as we learn about our gender identity and broadly about who we areThis book was just beautiful from start to finish Jacob s tone is mostly playful and charming in a way that makes me want to get brunch with them and laugh about all of the dumb shit straight people have ever said to us But even within cute or funny anecdotes Jacob is able to slow it down and give emotional moments the space they deserve This book isn t a ueer tragedy but the truth of it is that there is pain to growing into these identities both internal and external and Jacob is able to give space to let those feelings be before bringing it back into the overall upbeat fun mood of the book And I think that s where they truly succeed is making gender FUN Beating back against the stories we expect to hear of trans angst and earning your place in the binary through years of abuse Jacob puts forth a memoir that is able to recount an imperfect journey without focusing only on the hurt I absolutely loved this book and think that everyone should read it but ESPECIALLY people whose only understanding of trans people is coming from stories where trans folks have had awful lives find themselves and re integrate into the gender binary to become Just Like You Those narratives are valuable but this book is a breath of fresh air and a great look into a part of the ueer community whose voice is often unheardWhile I honestly want to just recommend this book to everyone I would particularly suggest it to people who love other humorous uick paced memoirs such as those by Jenny Lawson And anyone looking for a boisterous fun narrator to fall madly in love with will find it in Jacob Tobia

    35 Stars The first half of this memoir is amazing Tobia articulates the painful experiences they had while growing up and I was left with a greater understanding for a different kind of non binary experience Their memories surrounding their childhood had the strongest writing It was easy to understand the confusion of how they felt with how the adults in their life tried to steer them towards traditional masculinity The second half of the

    A very strong four stars for this bold and hilarious memoir I loved Jacob Tobia’s voice in Sissy A Coming of Gender Story I appreciated their progressive political views their honesty about their childhood adolescence and college years as a gender nonconforming person and their humor They take a critical perspective on social justice issues related to ueerness and gender like when they point out that “the closet” can be a pr

    Horribly written Attempts at humor fail miserably and most of the book is spent patting themselves on the back for their very very dull college lifefull transcriptions of emails they sent complaining about small instances of harassmentunwokeness at their Ivy League school not to dismiss harassment but it's very white middle class college student etc Want to read a book by a narcissist who thinks every dump they

    Full of energy but zero I mean ZERO panache And I don't mean panache in the flamboyant sense I mean it in the sense that a memoir like this really needs shape style structure and a reach for something permanent Instead it is written in the blog style of no style with uips here and there and intense self absorption beyond the call even for a memoir about discovering one's truest self I did gain some understanding of gender fluidity and non

    I liked Sissy okay I've enjoyed it in hindsight than when I was reading it It's not that I'm not glad I read it because I am PROBABLY what bothers me is mostly that personally Jacob Tobia doesn't seem like someone I'd jive with and that personality clash bleeds into whether or not I can enjoy their writingThat's not to say

    Just not my cup of teaI reuested that my library purchase this memoir and I so hope that others find it helpful and enlightening For me I realized about 40% of the way into the book that I just don’t like Jacob I found them unrelateable and overly self centered I had hoped to find some wisdom to move forward in better understandi

    And so here I am again plunging further out of my comfort zone with a memoir Memoirs are not books that I've read often mostly because I thought that they were inspired only by ego but I admit I was very wrong A memoir well written opens up a door into a life that we uite possibly would never have understood or maybe never noticed Memoirs give us insight into a multitude of cultures and lifestyles and teach us just as much as they tell Som
