    An Incredible Resource

    Julia Serano is incredible at describing the dangers of and prejudices against femininity. Men and women both tend to consider femininity frivolous when compared to masculinity, particularly in a trans perspective. That women would want to be men is understandable, because they are trading feminine weakness for masculine strength. But why a MAN would want to be a WOMAN and give up "his" power... She explains so much. As far as the genetic basis of it, I'm still not sure, but whether it is genetic or "choice" she really explains a lot. Props to Julia.

    A reviewer

    Julia Serano plows a whole lot of new ground. She is not the 'Christopher Columbus' of this world, but she is certainly the first, most intellectual person to get here. I have been a Trans-woman for years, and she taught me worlds of information. This is an absolute must-read for anyone that is interested in learning about the trans world. It is NOT so different from the world you know. It is your world.
