The term catches your attention doesn’t it? Maybe it causes you to start thinking about what it could mean. Or maybe it makes you laugh or roll your eyes. I first encountered this term while reading Dr. Diane Ehrensaft’s book, “The Gender Creative Child: Pathways For Nurturing And Supporting Children Who Live Outside Gender Boxes.”
Dr. Ehrensaft defines Gender Ghost as “internalized thoughts, attitudes, feelings, beliefs, and experiences that draw us toward culturally defined binary gender boxes and make us anxious when we or anyone else strays from them.”
