it was amazing
bookshelves: feminism
Read in May, 2013

A frankly refreshing book discussing not only the near-universal derision and discrimination towards trans women and other trans feminine people but also the two large schools of gender identity formation -- biological and socially-constructed -- their deficiencies, strengths and the fact that neither alone satisfactorily describes how gender comes about and is lived.
A book that anyone who has any interest in transgender issues would do well to read.
