Your Behavior Creates Your Gender (VIDEO)
In a video called “Your Behavior Creates Your Gender,” Butler gives a quick 101 on gender as a construction, a great video to send out as a primer to academic feminist friends uneasy about genderqueer identity.
“We act as if that being of a man or that being of a woman is actually an internal reality or something that is simply true about us, a fact about us, but actually it’s a phenomenon that is being produced all the time and reproduced all the time,” Butler says in the video.
