I just wanted to spread the word about this article; Not Your Mom’s Trans 101.
“I think the time has come for me to tackle the problem of explaining and defining what it means to be transgender without resorting to cissexist language. It strikes me as I contemplate this task that Trans 101 is generally not only dumbed-down, but also declawed. There are truths that I must speak here that are incredibly threatening to a cissupremacist worldview, that attack its very foundations. But I for one am willing to do that. I am not here to make cis people comfortable or to reassure them that they are still the center of the gendered universe. In fact, I am totally fine with doing the opposite.”
I won’t pretend to be clued up enough to make any deep comments about this article, but I really enjoyed reading it and in light of my recent post about Transgender Day of Remembrance, I thought it might be good to continue the conversation and knowledge sharing goodness.
