    1 thought on “X: A Fabulous Child's Story

    1. This is so amazingly a period piece. I remember reading a review in a magazine circa 1980, and being intrigued by the idea. But I forgot about the book until recently. It's fascinating to see how issues of gender norms have changed and how they haven't. While there is much more tolerance in general for non-girly girls, and for girls to engage in boy pursuits, there is a more extreme fringe more vigorously enforcing the roles at either end.

    2. I heard about this book a few months ago after the news about a "genderless" child hit the web. I think Gould proves a very valid point that we should let the child in question learn, grow and be who it wants to be and not who we think it should be. It was also pretty nifty that X didn't feel alienated or anything of the sort from its peers, because sadly enough real life isn't so forgiving and open-minded.

    3. Baby X is a playfull romp thorugh gender identity. Me myself as a polysexual polyamerous genderfluid demiromantic intersexual WOMAN find this to be a great story to teach our children. My only problem with this is that it allows men to exist. I think all men should be wiped off of the earth, exept if they are gay. Gay people are cool.

    4. Wow! They don't make storybooks this thought provoking anymore. A great picture book that makes you analyze the gender roles we play in society simply because we were brought up to believe those are the roles we must play. Although some parts did remind me of SNL's "It's Pat" sketch comedy. I wonder if this book was the inspiration?

    5. Gosh, I read this years ago and thought it was brilliant then. Now of course, it should have a whole new audience. When X's parents won't say whether X is a boy or a girl, it sends folks into tizzies (Gosh, does this sound familiar and relevant?). All that is, except X, who is happy and joyful and only more so when Y the younger sibling arrives. I still have my ancient copy. This is a classic!

    6. Such an interesting an eye-opening story. It is intriguing to think of how we-as a society, have unconsciously conformed to gender norms and most of all how we dismiss those who act against them.

    7. What a strange little book. This piece makes quite the statement about gender identity. Although it is technically a children's story, I would not recommend reading this book to children.
