Question of the Week:
Question: Hello, I came across a web site that says the term "Transgenderism" is "empty". You can see it at http://www.femimage.com/news-WhatTranssexualityIs.htm. The full quote follows: "A recent term in usage is 'Transgenderism', essentially an empty word conjured up as a neutral label for any individual not conforming to common social rules of gender expression. The term was created to help unite very disparate individuals under a vague commonality of interest in gender, in order to provide a basis for mutual benefit and support within an often violently antagonistic society."
Was that a put-down or what? Listening to your broadcasts, it seems to me that you use the term in anything but an empty manner. Thanks ... From Sharing, Fairfax, VA
