Everyday Life as a Testing Ground for Performative Parenting
In living with a child, young parents often find themselves confronted with stereotypical and generalized representations of gender. Teaching children about gender diversity day to day requires more than just good books and teaching models; what we need are performative tactics that break with existing routines during everyday life. What potential does taking a performative approach to the everyday hold? Which specific tactics can we use with our children to take a critical view of how gender is represented in daily life? And what can we learn from our children, by following their instincts for play? Performing the everyday as queer creates a lived experience of diversity and breaks through cliched notions of gender.
