Team of authors. Gender for "Tea makers", 2006
This book is written for Russians, women and men, who once in their life came across the fact that their "sex" became their "ceiling". Such problems could arise during adolescence, in hiring, in labyrinthine career paths, in relationships with friends, in the family, in intimate life, in reflecting on the destinies of the fatherland and even in such an innocent situation as reading classical literature or watching a movie, when comparing yourself with the heroes, suddenly you feel some sort of vague anxiety and irritation (if I do not want to be a "female" like Natasha Rostov, then I'm a bad woman? If I dislike the heroes who solve their problems solely in hand-to-hand combat, I not a man?).
What is this our sense of our own sex and what is our attitude to us as to people who have sex? Is this fate, predetermined, as Sigmund Freud said, anatomy, nature or something else? After all, you do not have to be a bald-headed man to understand that a modern businessman feels himself a little differently than any Scythian warrior, and the supermodel girl that the readers of glossy magazines want to look like is not Tatyana Larina.
The notion of "gender" in the title of this book and, perhaps, familiar to many readers, just helps to answer these questions.
