A couple of years ago I wrote a comment to a LGBT/T newsparer called “Good Bye to Transgender and All That”. The title was a paraphrase of a 1970 piece by Robin Morgan and a piece by Del Martin.
Now Robin Morgan has at times royally pissed me off. I find her at times to be opportunistic, over bearing and obnoxious. I though her trashing of Beth Elliott in 1973 was beyond the pale and then compounded by republishing the trashing in “Going too Far”.
Yet I admire Morgan as one of the brilliant voices of Second Wave Feminism, someone who has often nailed things.
So I forgive her for her short comings.
People criticized me for writing that piece and for alluding to Robin Morgan’s “Good Bye to all That”.
The damage done by Prince to those who are in the terminology of some “classic transsexuals” andin my thinking are women identified rather than transgender identified is very deep.
I’m almost tempted to go through doing some research.
I would bet he laid the seeds that grew into GID and transsexuals being considered mentally ill. The dots are there in isolated statements and we need to connect them if we are to destroy the fiction of GID.
