    Early dysphoria and childhood isolation.

    Elliot Page was born in Nova Scotia, Canada, on February 21, 1987. Assigned female at birth, he was named Ellen before transitioning. His parents, Martha Philpotts, an educator, and Dennis Page, a graphic designer, divorced before Elliot was two. After splitting his time between parents, Elliot moved in with his father and his new wife at the age of six, settling into a spacious townhouse near the Northwest Arm, Halifax.

    However, home didn’t always provide the safety and warmth one would hope for. Elliot’s stepmother, Linda, encouraged her own children to tease and mock him. Was it because Elliot rejected her gourmet cooking? No. It was most likely because he was different from his step-siblings.

    From a young age, Elliot felt uncomfortable with the label “girl”. His preference for “boy’s” toys, clothes, and male friends made his mother uneasy. Reflecting on his childhood, Page cherishes the moments he spent alone with his mother. Yet, during social occasions, he was expected to put on dresses – to conform. This imposed conformity caused ongoing discomfort and a sense of betrayal. Both parents expected him to outgrow this “phase,” with his mother eagerly awaiting his transformation into a “young lady.” But it wasn’t going to be that simple. 

    At age 8, Elliot was heartbroken when forced to leave the co-ed football team. The switch from boy to girl occurred without warning, leading to increased dysphoria and relentless discomfort. The profound sense of not belonging weighed heavily on Elliot’s heart. He grew to despise feminine clothing, seeking solace in what he called “private play.” He would spend hours constructing forts, developing intricate stories, and playing with action figures. In solitude, he could be his authentic self. 

    He found freedom and openness within the realm of his imagination. No topic was off-limits, including romantic scenarios. He composed letters to a fictional lover and signedthen signing them as “Jason”. In public, his short hair and demeanor let him pass for a boy, but puberty and the requirement to grow out his hair for acting roles swiftly reversed the effect. Elliot also had a close friend named Anna, with whom he shared precious moments. They walked, played video games, and watched movies together. 

    Elliot yearned to share his feelings, but it wasn’t to meant to be. Even a casual touch was too much for his crush to bear. An unsettled home life and a burgeoning queer identity led to confusion and constant introspection. Despite these challenges, there was one thing Elliot was certain of: his desire to act.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
