Adult human female? Unattainable, fantastic social construct mined for centuries for the profit of patriarchy? And worth saying, perhaps; that if the archetype remains unattainable (desirable or not) for womyn-born-womyn; then how much more so for Burchill’s ‘bedwetters in bad wigs’?
I chanced upon this article via the ever-reliable GenderTrender – always worth a visit if one is of a gender sceptical bent. As GT readers have noted, said article is slyly weighted in favour of contemporary liberal morés. But I trust those in full possession of their critical faculties will make mincier meat of it.
From the X(X) Files: the truth is out there, cutting edge or as dully-predictable as the NY‘s closing quote from aging geek and trans*celebrity Sandy Stone:
‘I am going to have to say (to women), It’s your place to stay out of spaces where transgender male-to-female people go. It’s not our job to avoid you.’
