The war of words regarding “Tranny” has driven the stake through the heart of the meme “Transgender Umbrella”. Even more so than the transsexuals who never wanted to be included.
“Tranny” is used and embraced by drag queens and gender outlaws. It is shunned by more assimilationist transsexual and transgender folks. Trans Media Watch just issued guidelines for dealing with “gender non-binary” folks causing my head to explode.
Yet one more reason to embrace my assimilationist post-transsexual status. Just like I left the ghetto behind years ago and became virtually non-trans.
