Abstract

This book contemplates how self-determination relates to sex/gender productions, transitions and expressions, and how they correspond to current debates around binary sex/gender embodiment. I will consider throughout how diverse cultural practices and systems may still be (de)limiting trans, sex/gender expansive and intersex trajectories to self-determination. These are not dead ends though but produce new virtualities. This is because trans people are always becoming-trans, sex/gender expansive people are always becoming-sex/gender expansive and intersex people are always becoming intersex-people. This is the same for cis people too, who are always becoming-cis people. The relevant qualities that everybody has are not inherent, archetypal or phylogenetic but are desired in specific assemblages of becoming-human and/or becoming-social (Deleuze and Guattari, 2004).
