My mum decided she wants to knit me a jumper. Despite me not owning a single jumper designed for men, she decided to go and look at patterns designed for men. “You seem to be looking at jumpers modeled by men, perhaps you are looking in the wrong place,” I say, wondering if she’s even seen what I’ve been wearing the past few years.

How much of gender is expressed in clothing? Is clothing a necessary means to communicate gender?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
