Judith Butler on gender and the trans experience

Constance, Judith Butler is a very important voice in the rethinking of gender and gender roles, and as such is worth spending some time exploring.

This article is a good introduction, so I am posting it for your opportunity.

  1. This is a strong article, and captures my own sense of irony at movements or at least certain figures in them that would seek to liberate people from patriarchy while merely replacing one thought police with another. Shame about the comments thread, though. I had expected the usual barrage from radfems and conservatives, but I had not expected a radfem-allied transwoman (apparently) asserting her own claim to that gender identity while rubbishing other people’s. So much for empathy there…
