Gender

I was sitting in the Broadway Bagel Cafe at lunch today, where the sound system plays all musicals all the time. I was reading Gender Outlaw by Kate Bornstein, a book Elaine loaned to me. As I was reading through the section on defining gender, the music system was playing "There's Nothing Like Dame".

A quotation from the New York Times graces the front cover of this small book:

"In an age of often hostilely expressed gender politics, Kate Bornstein...is sweet, sincere, lucid, and sometimes as corny as Kansas in August."

Right after the Dame song came "...I'm as corny as Kansas in August". I was in the right place at the right time.
