"Different though the sexes are, they inter-mix. In every human being a vacillation from one sex to the other takes place, and often it is only the clothes that keep the male or female likeness, while underneath the sex is the very opposite of what it is above."

- Virginia Woolf

I should be promoting this only in my other blog, but I have started reading a piece of Canadian literature about transgendered individuals in rural Newfoundland. It is called Annabel, it is by Kathleen Winter, and it is beautiful.

This quote from Virginia Woolf is provided before the prelude.

I wonder if we will ever see the day when we all recognize our own transgendered-ness.

  1. Thanks for sharing the quote from Woolf, Neal. Honestly, some of the things you've written or shared recently have gotten me to think more broadly about the whole gender thing. And I appreciate having my mind opened.
    I've heard great things about Winter's book and will probably buy it for my Kobo. Thanks for the recommendation.
