Again, awesome readings...

I found "Transgender Studies: Queer Theory's Evil Twin" particularly enlightening... I was not aware that "transsexuals were considered abject creatures in most feminist and gay or lesbian contexts". While I see the importance in distinguishing transgender studies from queer studies as “something that cuts across existing sexualities” I would be interested to know where the ideas of feminism have come into conflict with transgender studies. It stuck me as interesting that feminism has once again managed to ostracize a minority group from its discourse.
