Can books help society understand gender?

As the title says.

I think they do, as many of the things I’ve learned about the LGBT community—particularly the trans and enby side of things—have come from reading. It was difficult for me to learn about LGBT things when I was younger so I had to resort to my age-mate books. I think books are handy because it brings you into a world of the character’s own, and you begin to understand why the character thinks the way they do. I think if everyone read a lot more, we’d all be able to understand other people’s points of view a lot more.

What do you think @Bookworms?


Yeah, definitely! One of my favourite book characters is Alex Fierro from the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series! He identifies as genderfluid and uses both he/him and she/her pronouns throughout the series.


Yes, definitely. ‘Cause like TV and film, books are both influenced and influence pop culture today. Meaning that society as a whole tends to follow it.
