This investigation on the modern fluidity of gender asks how people question what masculinity and femininity are, and how much of that is the result of biology and social conditioning. Social trends towards more gender fluidity were assisted by the separation of sex and reproduction after the introduction of contraceptives, and the spread of the idea of gender as performance. The book has chapters on sex, sex roles, and the challenging of ingrained teaching and expectations. Likewise, there is also a focus on transgender persons, moving between gender roles, treating gender as a spectrum, and further implications. The examples go from gender-neutral kindergardens in Oslo and Chicago via »femminielli« weathercasters in Naples to transsexual Mormon parents in Utah.
