I’ve been trying to think for days of a professional and interesting way to write about this book, but I’ve been failing. Badly. I’ve actually written four posts on it and am not happy with any of them.
The reason is that when I read this book, it kinda made my head explode.
I know, eloquent, right? There’s just so much here and so much of it that I still need to work on. It’s easy to talk intelligently about books that cover concepts that I’m already a little familiar with, and this isn’t even my first book on trans people. Serano just does such an amazing job of breaking down the feminism within the trans perspective and then relating it to the majority feminist agenda.
I’d like to tell you all about it, and I could gush for days (just ask my husband), but I don’t think I should. I just know that I’ll mess something up and explain it wrong or not do justice to it. Just go read it. Or listen to it. Or however you want to devour the information.
But be careful. Expect to go back over sections more than once. Expect lightening to strike.
