Description: Two transgendered individuals discuss gender via email and eventually both agree and agree to disagree. Useful and informative writing about the gender system in American culture, as well as a model of generous sharing of ideas and emotions without rancor. More
Notes and Disclaimers: This email exchange is offered as a tool for understanding, as it documents a conversation in which two trans people with different thoughts about gender disagree respectfully and eventually find common ground. It is unedited except to correct the usual array of typographical errors that mark passionate email exchange. Neither of us claim to speak for any group, for all transpeople, or for anyone at all except ourselves – this is the unedited record of two individuals hashing it out about sex and gender.
