PS - Although I have many Gay and Lesbian friends, this site helps me to better understand them as well. I know there is a mutual lack of understanding. So, if we're all scratching our heads about each other, just imagine what the straight crowd is doing.
Ay yi yi!! That puts it in perspective!
We were at a conference yesterday, one which included a transgender workshop I now heartily regret I did not attend (I was at a different one the same hour). I'm hoping there will be another opportunity soon, because for all my activism, I tend to throw out the word "T" very perrfunctorily, without such a handle on the issues, necessarily. But seem to be getting there.
Thanks for the book rec. I've been thinking lately that I could do with a good study on trans issues.
