From the moment we are born, we are defined by our gender.
Pink for girls, blue for boys. Trucks for boys, ballet for girls. “You run like a girl.” “Man up.” “Grow some balls.” “Stop being such a pussy.” We live in a world obsessed with gender. Some of us are restricted by it. Some of us miss out on opportunities because of it. Some of us are at a higher risk of experiencing violence because of it. And some us don’t feel like we fit in either category, opening us up to a whole new realm of prejudice. And at The Watercooler we’re 100% done. With all of it. Join Ruby Reihana-Wilson, Ray Shipley and Vanessa Yates as they give you their hot take on gender, identity, and fighting social constructs.
