Seven Million Shiny Boxes

Seven Million Shiny Boxes

I’ve always been interested in the concept of gender even before I knew it. I remember when I was a kid, noticing how men and women were treated differently – in movies, on the news, in commercials – and I noticed how girls and boys were treated differently in school, and even in my own family. When they separated the girls from the boys, I was in the girls’ line, but there were times I felt like I didn’t fit into the girl box, or wasn’t “girl” enough. Why not separate according to hair color, or interest in music?
