Number 17: A Book Picked Based on its Spine

The 2000s Made Me Gay: Essays on Pop Culture

Grace Perry

The category for this was obvious. This was the book that I picked based on its spine. I grew up in the 2000s, and I have so much nostalgia for the time it is a wonder I have space in my brain for anything else. This book did not disappoint! Grace Perry is awesome, and I would like to listen to her thoughts forever.

And now, a montage of the various pop culture this book made me miss:

What came first, the overeager collegiate dyke desperate for affection or the Banter Boy… was I mirroring him or relating to him?

So, that’s when I became a girl. At a time where gender-bending was encouraged and celebrated, but homophobia still reigned.

What a decade it was! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some movies to rewatch.
