    Jenny, CeCe McDonald is being held in a men’s prison. (is that what you meant to say?) Moreover, many trans women being held in such facilities are kept in solitary confinement (or restricted confinement) for months and even years at a time, supposedly for their own safety. Many trans women are also sexually assaulted by [...]

  • @Rubber… you’re really not saying if those drag performers primarily ID’d as gay men (outside their gig) or trans women. I am in total agreement with you that waaay too many drag performers, specifically gay male drag performers, tend to have very misogynistic (and often transmisogynistic) assumptions behind most of their “humor” and I, as [...]

  • Anyone who really read Jos’ second essay on this and still says she’s policing sexuality has NOT done your homework on your own privilege. It’s painfully obvious from what she’s written that she doesn’t give a damn who you choose to sleep with and has no interest in policing you. She cares about the mind [...]

  • Mika, I can’t agree with you that it’s genitalia based, because it totally leaves out trans people who’ve had bottom surgery… trans women with pussies and trans men with penises. Not to mention ignoring people who don’t have the same relationship with their genitalia that you do (someone, for example, who doesn’t consider their vag [...]

    Here’s my comment on Jos’ thread (see what you think) Anyone has a right to be attracted to whom they wish… I agree with that statement. No one should be coerced to have sex with someone they don’t wish to have sex with. However, don’t turn around and pretend your preferences aren’t rooted in various [...]

However, don’t turn around and pretend your preferences aren’t rooted in various forms of entitlement and social oppression. How might you feel [...]

    Bex, I really think you’ve answered your own question. At the very least, before anyone IDs themselves as panssexual, I would hope they would do a deep self-examination as to whether their claim that “I don’t date genitals or genders” is really accurate. And that, surprise, it’s no accident we are attracted to the people [...]

    Hey Jos, I was at Girl Talk and I just wanted to say that your piece was my favorite one of the evening. And that I found most of the pieces by cis women to barely even be on topic nor were they in any way about having any kind of physical relationship with trans [...]

  • While I’m glad Leslie Feinberg is supporting CeCe (and yes, I know zie is sick and shows a lot of dedication to protest while not well), let’s not make too big a deal about hir getting arrested. What did zie do… spray paint a wall?! Is that really civil disobedience on an important scale worth [...]

    Personally, I believe very little the Williams Institute puts out. They aren’t very open about the methodology of their studies. I note their population ‘statistics’ involving the trans population were derived by averaging 3 older studies (which gave very little info about how their stats were arrived at) and didn’t even really define who it [...]

  • Last time I looked, Rafe Posey is a trans man, not a trans woman. And yes, Samhita, sadly a lot of what’s taught in Women’s Studies (even worse in Gender Studies) is rather transmisogynist by omission and even erasure. Way too many tributes to Adrienne Rich (a great poet and key feminist) which don’t make [...]
