Join us May 30, 2013, 7 pm, in store for the book launch and butch bakeoff for Mistaken Identity by Sheila Gilhooly.
When was the last time you encountered someone whose gender you couldn’t identify?
The experience is disconcerting, maybe frightening.
That is gender shock.
(from the forward by barbara findlay)
I got a young, improbably handsome doctor and he was really friendly, calling me “Buddy” and being all sympathetic. I was trying to kid myself that his calling me “Buddy” didn’t mean he thought I was a man, and at the same time trying to think of a witty and non-threatening way to tell him I’m a woman. Before I got a chance, he got to the “looking at the paper-work” part and said, “Sheila.. What sort of name is that Buddy?”
