In one of the premarital counseling sessions with my wife, the therapist asked us about gender roles in our relationship.
As I sit here writing… I am inhabiting a body. As you sit there reading… you are, also, inhabiting a body.I am sure, just as I do, you have a long and complex history with your body. Most of my history surrounds my body’s interaction with gravity and how much space it takes up.
Sexuality and gender seem unique in their capacity to elicit terror in adults and embarrassment in children.
