Introduction and commentary, including:
Question of the Week
"In applying for a job that you intend to dress enfemme most or all of the time, is it best to go to the interview dressed enfemme? Also in sending out a resume, under your fem name that requires references with it, what is the best way to provide the link between the two names?"
Hal Fuller's Twisted Nasty News:
Remember Tupperware parties? A cultural phenomenon of the late 50s and 60s, these events became a vehicle for women to fullfill their ambitions, large and small. Producer/writer/director Laurie Kahn-Leavitt talks about the woman behind Tupperware success story, and how she broke with stereotypes and convention to create a fun and wildly successful business that empowered a generation of women.
Laurie has directed "The MidWives Tale" and the "Tupperware!". She is presently a visiting scholar at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandeis University. "Tupperware!" will air on PBS on February 9, 2004. Laurie also created an interactive website (dohistory.org) where you can interact with historical characters.

Not all people who feel some conflict about their personal gender and who are inclined to identify themselves as transgender are interested in transition or even crossdressing. Marc Bonagura, a Professor of English, writer, and herbalist, talks about his personal experience of gender and how it does not fit into any of the established transgender categories.
Marc has done extensive research with World War II veterans, and is currently writing a book about Bob Worthington, a World War II Marine who fought in the battle of Guadalcanal in the Southwestern Pacific. For many years, he has read, researched and taught various aspects and perspectives on gender in his writing classes.
