About Us

BARBARISM is a multimedia project developed by Rebecca Katherine Hirsch and Sarah Secunda that questions gender injustice and explores the fluidity of identity… with vim!

“Gaining recognition and acknowledgment from those who would defend the gender binary isn’t going to be easy. The very act of questioning gender has the potential to change the face of the gender system forever. And the fun news is that there’s no defense against our honest questioning, because an honest question is never an attack. What’s more, there is no methodology by which a person can prove the gender binary is either basic or essential to humanity.”

– Kate Bornstein, My Gender Workbook

Good idea. A binary only survives because it’s easy.
