From the moment a doctor put 'male' on Jacob Tobia's birth certificate, everything went wrong. Alongside 'male' came many other, far less neutral words: words that carried expectations about who Jacob was and who Jacob should be, words like 'masculine' and 'aggressive' and 'cargo shorts' and 'SPORTS]' Naturally sensitive, playful, creative, and glitter-obsessed, as a child Jacob was given the label sissy.

In the two decades that followed, 'sissy' joined forces with 'gay,' 'trans,' 'nonbinary,' and 'too-queer-to-function' to become a source of pride and, today, a rallying cry for a much-needed gender revolution. Through revisiting their childhood and calling out the stereotypes that each of us have faced, Jacob invites us to rethink what we know about gender and offers a bold blueprint for a healed world-one free from gender-based trauma and bursting with trans-inclusive feminism.

From Jacob's Methodist childhood and the hallowed halls of Duke University to the portrait-laden parlours of the White House, Sissy takes you on a gender odyssey you wont soon forget. Writing with the fierce honesty, wildly irreverent humour, and wrenching vulnerability that have made them a media sensation, Jacob shatters the long-held notion that people are easily sortable into 'men' and 'women.'

Sissy guarantees that you'll never think about gender - both other people's and your own - the same way again.

Need to be discreet? No problem! Everything is sent out in plain packaging.

Deliveries in the UK seem to be pretty much back to normal since the 20th May 2021. We only send things first class and 99% are arriving in 1 - 2 working days.

International orders are still taking longer, due to different country lockdowns, the increase in online shopping and the reduction of flights carrying cargo and deliveries around the world. You should expect international orders to take longer than normal, although many are arriving on time. Some international orders take 2 weeks, some take 2 months. That's just the way of the world at the moment.

We use Royal Mail for deliveries with a tracking barcode. Once an item is with Royal Mail, we're not able to track it until it's been delivered/signed for. 

We can not be held responsible if your order does not arrive for a certain date.
