I Am Third-Gendered
Got a fine little interview situation over at Eliot: A Literary Blog. Nice to be included among the rich and famous writers of the world on the topic of my life, rejection. Interestingly, Farnworth insists that I am male, though he isn't sure. He even misreads my bio to say: "I am a published, award-winning author of fiction and creative nonfiction--but whatever. In the eyes of many, he is still a literary reject," when it really says "In the eyes of many, I am still a literary reject. " Hmm. What's that all about, I wonder? My gender is important. Yes, that is the case in the culture. But I tell you here and now, I am a third-gendered person. I don't care much about the pronouns. Please think of me as whatever you like.
