Sissy: A Coming-of-Gender Story by Jacob Tobia | Memoir Mini-Review

No one trans story is better or inherently more “radical” than another, but that hasn’t stopped cisgender media culture from deeming certain trans stories to be more valuable than others. Those of us who don’t fit the classical narrative end up either having our stories edited and reedited until they fit, or end up having our voices silenced.
And that’s fucked.

Excerpt from Sissy by Jacob Tobia

Jacob Tobia broke the unnecessary mold of “trans narratives” with this memoir. This book had equal parts nuanced conversations about gender and hilarious banter with the reader (don’t knock their grandma’s style!) It truly is a reclamation – of the word sissy and of their own story.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
