    This year's worked out pretty decently, there's only 3 working days between the 23rd of December and the 2nd of January inclusive.

    theconversation_ 2017-the-year-of-transgender-moral-panic

    There are many complex reasons behind this moral panic. In the UK, much of it followed the announcement of proposed revisions to the Gender Recognition Act. This will hopefully bring UK legislation in line with other countries and states which allow trans people to self-define their gender, potentially opening this up to include non-binary people. If the revisions go through, people will no longer need to go through a lengthy, bureaucratic, medicalised process. However, it is not clear how long the consultation period on the Gender Recognition Act will take – or what impact the ongoing moral panic will have on the process.

    A more insidious reason for moral panics and scapegoating is that they enable us to attack a specific group for problems we’re all implicated in – in this case blaming trans people for the rigid system of gender norms which hurts us all.

    This would explain why there’s so little protest about the non-consensual, often medically unnecessary and damaging surgeries routinely carried out on intersex babies, but loud outcry against the consensual, often life-enhancing, surgeries undertaken by some trans adults. The former bring people’s bodies in line with current gender norms, while the latter challenge the cultural assumption that people always remain in the gender they were assigned at birth.

    Got through a bit of that, including his essay/memo (page 64)

    Get the feeling that once his memo became distorted and went viral outside of the private forums, a lot of people probably didn't bother reading the entire thing and just started attacking him.

    Doesn't look great hey.
