It is wonderful and increasingly rare to read an article on the internet that has me nodding my head, and thinking, I have never thought about it that way. What a great way of explaining this idea.
Natalie Reed's 13 Myths and Misconceptions About Trans-Women has done just that for me.
There are beautifully simple ideas here:
“ … sexual orientation is about who you want to go to bed with, gender identity is about who you want to go to bed as.”
but for me, this article is important because she has expressed some universal truths about the human condition., such as:
"If prevention of sexual assault is something you’re keenly interested in then please start by focusing on dismantling a misogynistic culture that objectifies and devalues women and places their humanity as secondary to their bodies."
For more of the same go here for part one.
