Feminists mentioning trans

I realized the problem began with the fact that adjectives are mostly required of the less powerful. Thus, there are “novelists” and “female novelists,” “African-American doctors” but not “European- American doctors,” “gay soldiers” but not “heterosexual soldiers,” “transgender activists” but not “cisgender activists.”

Feminists mentioning trans, is another unique topic from Clare.  In this post, she has a lot to say about an article by Gloria Steinem, and relates it to homophobia, transphobia, and even gender reassignment surgery.   It's a relatively short, and very readable post.
