FREE DOWNLOAD The Art of Being Normal FREE DOWNLOAD ï The Art of Being Normal Ser una chica El primer día en su nueva escuela Leo Denton sólo tiene un objetivo pasar desapercibido Pero en cuanto llega llama la atención de la chica más bonita de la clase. CONTENT WARNING TRANSPHOBIA I m not transgender but even I can see how terrible the author dealt with the characters transness The story is about the transgender girl Kate who is closeted and goes by David for most of the book and the transgender boy Leo who is not out at his new school The two of them form an unlikely friendship and that s basically what the story is about I thought the story itself was except for some problematic things I ll remark on later on really fun and just nice to read I love reading about ueer kids and friendships This book hits a lot of basic trans tropes that are problematic and could have been handled so much better I honestly wonder if the author who isn t trans herself as far as I know has even asked a single trans person for feedback because I can t believe that nobody realized how this book was basically a cis person wanting to prove how good of an ally they are by writing a book about trans issues without knowing anything about trans issues Guess what She s a terrible ally If you can even call her an ally at allThe book has a whole lot of misgendering deadnaming and usage of the wrong pronouns and on top of that there s bullying transphobia and name calling and if that s not bad enough here s some From here on there will be some spoilers but honestly you probably don t want to read this book after you ve read my review so does it really matter You decide I honestly thought I had somehow misremembered Leo being trans until GUESS WHAT the author uses it as a huge plot twist and a bad one with that He s basically forced to reveil his transness to someone he cares about after which that person completely drops him Which is very shittyWhen Leo voluntarily comes out to Kate he does this by partly undressing and showing her his binder As if there is no other way you can let another person know you are trans except for showing your body I cannot believe for a second a trans person would rather show fairly intimate parts of their body than just saying hey I m also transBoth Leo and Kate are outed without their permission whatsoever and even though Kate being outed was done with good intentions I guess it is still a terrible thing to do Near the end of the book Kate s friends out her to almost the entire school without asking her anything and instead host her a suprise party dress her up and not tell her anything until it s too late to do anything about it This is the end of the spoiler section What comes next are very minor spoilers that have nothing to do with the plot I wanted to go a little in depth on the use of pronouns and names in this book Though Kate is a trans girl A GIRL for most of the book she still goes by her birth name and hehim pronouns Both in narration and dialogue David and hehim are used which I didn t have much of a problem with until she was out Even after Kate is out to Leo he still continues to call her David and uses hehim pronouns You d think a trans person would understand the importance of names and pronouns HE KNOWS how much it hurts to be called by his birth name and yet he still goes out and calls Kate by hers That s just plain bad and if the author did any research on this she d knowAt the point they do start using sheher and Kate it s treated as something the character needs to be congratulated on instead of you know it being a fcking decent thing to not misgender peopleThe thing about this and of the often badly phrased laguage of the author is that the author makes it seem as if Kate is not a girl but instead is a boy wanting to be a girl In the narration there are several mentions or sentences that not just imply this but even state this literally Just a paraphrased example Kate says near the end about her parents how freaky it must be to see their son being dressed up as a girl If I know anything about gender identity and the same goes for sexualromantic orientation I know that it s not a choice You don t pick and choose to what genders you re attracted if you re even attracted to any gender at all and you also don t choose being trans A trans girl is a girl and a trans boy is a boy and using language like wanting to be a certain gender is very problematic and promotes the idea that transness is a choice which it isn tAs I said before I m not trans and though I try my best to educate myself on trans issues but if you found anything I said in this review to be wrong or problematic or anything please tell me and I ll try to do even better in the futureHere are some ownvoices reviews written by trans people by Neo on GR and by James on Tumblr On a side note PLEASE for the sake of my sanity like some ownvoices reviews andor reviews about how problematic it is on goodreads and make them the top reviews so people see
