Read full description of the books S/He:Dicidí leer este libro por que Minnie Bruce Pratt fue por muchos años la pareja de Leslie Feinberg, y para mi era una forma de entender a este ser maravilloso que me dió el mejor regalo de mi vida: "Stone Butch Blues". En gran parte leer S/He fue para mi encontrarme con Leslie, pero también con Minnie, sus reflexiones sobre el género, la violencia, la experiencia trans. Es un libro de momentos y de imágenes que conmueven por su sinceridad. Ha sido una maravillosa experiencia el leerlo.
"...I tell you something of what I am writing now, vignettes of daily life, the delicate twining of forbidden words, the way sex and gender and sexuality spread their tendrils through our lives and wrench us open, [...] You say, I'm telling you now: Whatever you write of me, or of us together, you will never have to ask if I approve. The only place I want to live with you is in the palace of truth" - Minnie Bruce Pratt
