Dropping the other shoe

In my last post, I commented that the main outcome from the Boy Scouts' admission of transgender people to membership under their preferred gender identity would be a proliferation of rules. I dodged addressing the larger question: what are we to make of transgenderism itself?

I was asked recently what I thought of transgenderism, and I replied, "It's just another way to be unhappy." But to explain that remark, I first have to attempt to define exactly what transgenderism is, and how we should address it.Collapse )
