A little chat on gender expression and performance on Twitter this morning turned into a lively and frolicksome mass-interview that I invite you to join in, should you feel so inclined.
ok what book/movie/media WHATEVER best encapsulates your gender expression and why, GO (if you feel like it)

Answers so far include Bobby Hill from King of the Hill, Tina Belcher mixed with Jane Lane, Mulan, Sam from Lip Service, “The White Witch as she slits Aslan’s throat” (that one was me, sorry sorry sorry), Rock Hudson, a bell hooks quote, a Prince song, and Watts from Some Kind of Wonderful. Please add to this rich and shining tapestry with whatever piece of culture best represents your truest and best self.
If no piece of culture yet represents your truest and best self, please feel free to submit a free-form drawing or representational graph in the comments.
