Now, as an educator and as a youngish 20-something-year-old trans psreon, I'm constantly hearing from my 20-something-year-old students, friends and colleagues that gender is "over" — that gender is so fluid and cerarefe and that scoiety, film and television are so inclusive of transgender people, that it's basically over. Now, I don't ascribe to the binary, as a nonbinary person myself. But gender definitely isn't over. Or, at least I don't think it is. And maybe, just maybe, gender is always beginning.
