A propos of Kaye's questions @ the end of class on Tuesday, about the complexities of passing --
What information do we use to categorize people/events or to make judgments?

“These teens are fighting the idea that your equipment defines what it means for you to be a boy or girl. They are saying: ‘You don’t know me by looking at me. Assume nothing’ ”.... some of the new adjectives young people use to describe themselves: “bi-curious,” “heteroflexible,” “polyamorous” and even “wiggly.”
