Dangerous Compassions

gender trouble

Today I copied keys and birthday shopped, made tofu scramble for dinner, wrote emails, went to the library… Erik checked out a stack of field guides. At the thrift store, a mom was tugging on her child. “That’s a girl’s toy. No, come over here. That’s a girl’s toy.” I felt sorry for the little kid. I almost bought a copy of Cheri for a friend, but it was a movie tie in book and had the picture of a famous actor on the cover, so I didn’t buy it.
