Transgender studies is the latest area of academic inquiry to grow out of the exciting nexus of queer theory, feminist studies, and the history of sexuality. Because transpeople challenge our most fundamental assumptions about the relationship between bodies, desire, and identity, the field is both fascinating and contentious. The Transgender Studies Reader puts between two covers fifty influential texts with new introductions by the editors that, taken together, document the evolution of transgender studies in the English-speaking world. By bringing together the voices and experience of transgender individuals, doctors, psychologists and academically-based theorists, this volume will be a foundational text for the transgender community, transgender studies, and related queer theory.

The Lives of Transgender People

Responding to a critical need for greater perspectives on transgender life in the United States, Genny Beemyn and Susan (Sue) Rankin apply their extensive expertise to a groundbreaking survey one of the largest ever conducted in the U.S. on gender development and identity-making among transsexual women, transsexual men, crossdressers, and genderqueer individuals. With nearly 3,500 participants, the survey is remarkably diverse, and with more than 400 follow-up interviews, the data offers limitless opportunities for research and interpretation. Beemyn and Rankin track the formation of gender identity across individuals and groups, beginning in childhood and marking the "touchstones" that led participants to identify as transgender. They explore when and how participants noted a feeling of difference because of their gender, the issues that caused them to feel uncertain about their gender identities, the factors that encouraged them to embrace a transgender identity, and the steps they have taken to meet other transgender individuals. Beemyn and Rankin's findings expose the kinds of discrimination and harassment experienced by participants in the U.S. and the psychological toll of living in secrecy and fear. They discover that despite increasing recognition by the public of transgender individuals and a growing rights movement, these populations continue to face bias, violence, and social and economic disenfranchisement. Grounded in empirical data yet rich with human testimony, The Lives of Transgender People adds uncommon depth to the literature on this subject and introduces fresh pathways for future research.

Relationships; Pacification For Crazy People is straight talk about relationships today. It comically and insightfully examines many of the pitfalls and misconceptions of marriage and exclusive relationships. It takes the reader on a journey of 'hey, that happens in my relationship' 'that happened in my friend's relationship' and even 'I didn't know that happened in relationships.' Relationships; Pacification For Crazy People is not sugarcoated for the benefit of sensitive people. It truthfully explores such issues as the stress men and women cause, kids and how they can enhance or end a relationship - the good, bad and ugly parts of a relationship and more. In this book you will also find answers to commonly avoidable questions such as 'are you just a one night stand?' 'Is your relationship a fake' and 'Is there an actual difference between flirting and cheating?' This-the second book from the author of The Correct Way To Fool Around also provides many true life scenarios dealing with dating, infidelity and complacency.

Invisible Lives

The Erasure of Transsexual and Transgendered People

Author: Viviane Namaste

Category: Social Science

Page: 340

View: 6555

Invisible Lives is the first scholarly study of transgendered people—cross-dressers, drag queens and transsexuals—and their everyday lives. Through combined theoretical and empirical study, Viviane K. Namaste argues that transgendered people are not so much produced by medicine or psychiatry as they are erased, or made invisible, in a variety of institutional and cultural settings. Namaste begins her work by analyzing two theoretical perspectives on transgendered people—queer theory and the social sciences—displaying how neither of these has adequately addressed the issues most relevant to sex change: everything from employment to health care to identity papers. Namaste then examines some of the rhetorical and semiotic inscriptions of transgendered figures in culture, including studies of early punk and glam rock subcultures, to illustrate how the effacement of transgendered people is organized in different cultural sites. Invisible Lives concludes with new research on some of the day-to-day concerns of transgendered people, offering case studies in violence, health care, gender identity clinics, and the law.

After a cupcake-flinging fiasco at a photo shoot for a local magazine, Melanie Cooper and Angie DeLaura agree to make amends by hosting a weeklong corporate boot camp at Fairy Tale Cupcakes.

Be Loved for Who You Really Are

How the Differences Between Men and Women Can Be Turned into the Source of the Very Best Romance You'll Ever Know

Author: Judith Sherven,James Sniechowski, Ph.D.

Page: 288

Based on their 14 years together as relationship trainers working with over 100,000 singles and couples, Judith Sherven and James Sniechowski have developed a truly new and original way to approach relationships. Be Loved for Who You Really Are describes how differences between partners can be a source of understanding and intimacy, enhancing rather than destroying a relationship. Readers learn to recognize the process of understanding differences, and what is necessary to keep lovemaking and romance alive for a lifetime. Be Loved for Who You Really Are outlines a natural and predictable path that love requires, called the arc of love. Within this arc are four inevitable passages that enable the reader to better understand the challenges and pitfalls they will encounter, and to not confuse conflicts and tough times with disaster or failure. The idea of a "passage" is used because as love evolves between two people it requires that they face into and grow through a number of challenges. Those challenges are necessary for them to mature in the wisdom of their love and intimacy and in the day-to-day relationship they are co-creating. The four passages are: *A Glimpse of What Is Possible, the wonderful time of falling in love when you actually see the perfection of your partner. *The Clash of Differences, when your love is tested through the inevitable conflicts that emerge from your differences. *The Magic of Differences, when those very same differences allow you to be respected and loved for the person you truly are. *And The Grace of Deep Intimacy, when the passionate wonder of the beginning is now yours, through and through, and your love touches everyone you encounter. Unlike most relationship books, which are written primarily for women, Be Loved for Who You Really Are speaks to women and men equally. Judith & Jim underscore the fact that men are just as hungry for this kind of life-changing information. Throughout Be Loved for Who You Really Are, Judith and Jim provide inspiring examples that show how love lives between people, and that differences can actually be the key to the deepest connection being together has to offer.

Ende der 70er Jahre. In einem Krankenhaus irgendwo in Deutschland wird ein Kind geboren, dessen Geschlecht nicht eindeutig bestimmbar ist (ein Schicksal, von dem im Durchschnitt etwa eines von 4.500 Kindern betroffen ist). Der Arzt trifft mithilfe seines Skalpells eine Entscheidung und macht das Kind zu einem Mädchen. So beginnt die Geschichte von Suska. Die wichtigen Lebensjahre der Kindheit, des Heranwachsens und Erwachsenwerdens sind für Suska von dem Gefühl bestimmt, eigentlich ein Junge zu sein, das immer stärker werdende Bewusstsein, im falschen Körper zu hausen, stürzt sie in Verwirrung und Verzweiflung. Suskas Lötzerich erzählt in seiner autobiografischen Graphic Novel humorvoll, offen und ohne Umschweife von seiner wilden Jugend als Punk, den Verletzungen, die das Leben einem Menschen wie ihm zufügen kann, und vor allem von seiner Suche nach sexueller Identität. Ein Comic, schnell und rau wie ein Punksong.
