I was reading this again today because I wanted to give it to someone as a sort of Trans / Trans History 101. I hate to say it, but that would be a really bad idea. This pamphlet was written in 1993, and since then language has changed quite a bit.

“Like racism and all forms of prejudice, bigotry against transgendered people is a deadly carcinogen. We are pitted against each other in order to keep us from seeing each other as allies. Genuine bonds of solidarity can be forged between people who respect each other's differences and are willing to fight their enemy together. We are the class that does the work of the world, and can revolutionize it. We can win true liberation.” 8 likes
