Queering Roles


I just read through my students’ first writing assignment.  There were two parts; first they had to say, in their own words, what queer theory is / does in 70 or fewer words.  Secondly, they had to tell of “narrative of privilege” from their own experience.  

One student, whose activist resume rivals that of someone three times older, introduced me to two new acronyms relevant to the trans experience: MAAB and FAAB–male-assigned-at-birth and female-assigned-at-birth.  And the roles in the course have been officially queered.  Teacher becomes student, and student becomes teacher.
