Quotes[edit | edit source]
"Gender is all heart. We feel gender most strongly, not with our genitals or with our brains, but in our hearts. It’s about blood and sweat and tears and sadness and joy and love and bliss. Gender, by its inherent affective nature, can never be simple or merely academic."
