It ended up being a lot more about medical technologies, metaphors, and lived experience than I was really interested in for the moment.

0.0% "I went back and started reading the intro today and had to put it down. I found her definition of womanhood alienating, even tho her pout was supposed to be that womanhood is experienced in very different ways. And a painful exclusion of trans women, too."
