A quick round-up here for those interested in such things.
At Feministing Queen Emily explains why outing trans people can be so dangerous. What she fails to mention is that it is not only dangerous for the trans people in question — anyone who is a member of their family, or who has helped and supported them, is also put at risk.
In The Guardian Roz Kaveney attempts to navigate the minefield of labeling, with predictable results. I’m sure that somewhere out there people are yelling about how “straight” and “white” and “male” are horrible insults that people shouldn’t be allowed to use.
And finally, at The Stranger, Dan Savage discovers a lunatic doctor who is treating pregnant women with experimental drugs in the hope of ensuring that their daughters grow up to be “proper women”. I note that while there is outrage at Dr. New trying to prevent the birth of lesbians, career girls and the like, no one seems to mind the same drug being used to prevent the birth of intersex people.
