commented on About That Hate Crime I Committed at University of Chicago
I support the equal rights of trans and genderqueer people without reservation. But as a cis/het woman, I am often accused of not being inclusive/sensitive enough & transphobic when I talk about women's health issues like abortion, pregnancy, and even fucking yeast infections & PMS. So, I'm not allowed to talk about my experiences because...? Ugh. It's too much.

commented on Regarding the Word "Tranny," RuPaul Disagrees
It seems that this going to continue to be a point of contention between the drag and trans communities. And Ru is not wrong about people needing different labels at different points in their development (something that is discussed at length in the Marin interview)... But the development of a drag performer is not the same as the development of a trans person. I hope there can be room for both and all the words that attend those differences.

@8 Adult sexualization of children/adolescents is a problem. Peers finding each other arousing/attractive/thrilling? Developmentally appropriate and necessary for healthy adult sexuality.
