Revolving Gender

By Benjamin D. Rinehart
New York: Benjamin D. Rinehart, 2008. Unstated.

Bristol board rotating ring. Archival pigment prints. Numbered.

Rotating images pose the question about gender – Is she a boy? Is she a girl?

Benjamin D. Rinehart: "After not cutting my son’s hair for nearly two years, he is more often called a girl than a boy. Why gender is used by society to validate a toddler’s role in this world is vexing. After teaching kids at all ages over the years, I have found that specific and stereotypical gender roles are extremely limiting. Shouldn’t it be that each child is allowed to decide for themselves in a natural and evolutionary way about their gender?"
