A friend of mine sent me a link to an Op-Ed piece in the Advocate which is a direct response to Ms. Goldberg's article in the New Yorker.
The link to that piece, written by Julia Serano is HERE.

I am glad to have read it. It seems to be a far more reasonable piece and a very informed and educated response.

  2. i think i want to be come a radical humanist...

    we are having similar issues in MI currently. a womyn's festival is not allowing transgender women to participate because they are *not* womyn born of womyn.



  3. Mrs. A- See? I had no idea all of this was going on. I like the idea of becoming a radical humanist. Radhum?

  4. Mich Fest has been an issue for a long, long time. Mama, I could tell you alllllll about it. Some people you know have been fighting that fucked up no trans women policy for over a decade now. (And it's not that they say trans women are not "women born of women" but that they are not "women born women" - which is even more fucked up.)

  5. Mr. Downtown- I think you HAVE told me some about this sort of gathering. Or at least communities where no man is allowed, even little boys. I find this so sad. Here we are and our souls are our souls and what any of that has to do with genitals is so beyond me I can't even fathom it.
    Deep pain. There has been deep pain. And anger far beyond what I can comprehend. It saddens me because all of this just breeds more of it.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
