Popular Genderfuck Books

 

Genderfuck is a person who disrupts, or “bends,” expected gender roles. It is usually an intentional attempt to disrupt the gender identity from the monolog of bi-gender identity. This leaves a lot of room for self-expression and self-exploration without following the societal norms, while one is radically honest as well. However, genderfuck is very often associated with words such as queer, bi-gender, and homosexuality. Another angle to this quiet popular word these days is that of gender politics, it goes back to late 1974. In 1974 Christopher entitled one of his articles as “Genderfuck and its delight.” In this article, he tried to make fun or man and women both while trying not be normal at all, to destroy the cosmology of sexual identity. Later on, in the 1950s and 1960s, this identity politics movement came into existence as a guiding principle. Now in our modern society, we again see a comeback to this trend. Gone are the days when the protagonists only used to be cisgenders. Genderfuck or Genderqueer books are what we needed for the evolution of literature, and now it has finally started happening. Books featuring genderfuck, bigender, or gender-fluid characters and narrators are a huge development in the field of literature. Below is a list of genderfuck books by some of the famous authors.
