This book is an in-depth critical analysis of the life choices of the autoethnographic subject - the author - who was so uncomfortable with their culturally allocated masculinity that they chose to live an apparently normal female life, while attempting to remain gender transcendent. Placing this life in a social context, the work also explores the lifelong dichotomous heteronormative gender coercion from family, media, popular culture and other gender-rigid cultural texts the individual was subjected to. This book attempts to counter the lack of knowledge and understanding of people who do not or cannot conform to cultural norms of gender performance, in the belief that better knowledge and understanding of the range of gender non-conformities will help health professionals, the gender-nonconformist individuals themselves, their partners and families, as well as gender-conformist individuals, live more productive lives.
