When was the last time you encountered someone whose gender you couldn't identify?
The experience is disconcerting, maybe frightening.
That is gender shock.
These are stories from the life of a woman who is often mistaken for a man. Sheila Gilhooly writes of encounters in change rooms and washrooms, hospitals and police cars, with strangers and people in authority, who all make the same mistake. They think she is a man.
They experience gender shock. She has to deal with their reactions.
Gilhooly writes with a wry sense of self, and a combination of vulnerability and pride in her identity that leaves a lasting impression.
