Trans 101, and the Spiritual Heir of Caster Semenya
Here’s my post on the transgender panel from Thursday night, over at TNCRM.
I won’t try to summarize it here, but most of the discussion revolved around two topics of enduring interest to the transcommunity:
1. What’s the teaching role of transpeople, and are they allowed to get tired of it? Teaching the same course (“Trans 101”) can get tedious after a time.
2. Are gays and lesbians natural allies of the trans-community? On this, the panelists were not of one voice — but all agreed that there was at least one group that had been a steadfast ally. Read more to find out the secret identity of this mystery group!
As for the Caster Semenya reference — well, read the post!
