Accidents of Birth

We are not all the same, due to what I call “accidents of birth” that more often than not involve race, gender, class, able-bodiedness, and sexual orientation. We would be exploring this theme through a writing workshop wherein we discuss various ways to deal with accidents of birth. They can range from the fantastic to the mundane, addressing the concept that you are born into a body, and with it can come many expectations. How do you free yourself from ideas placed upon your body due to race, gender, sexual orientation, ability/disability, and/or class?
