The cultural context for transitioning

A new post on Transgender Trend looks at the impact of sexism and lesbophobia on young women’s decision to undergo transitioning.

“To take at face value the idea that children can be “trapped in the wrong body” you have to view these kids as living in a bubble which no cultural messages or parental or peer group influences can penetrate, and upon which no life experience has any impact. This leaves “trans kids” very vulnerable to an essentialist theory which denies them a holistic approach to care and treatment.”
