Question of the Week
"Nancy, How do you personally deal with concepts like those expounded by Lynn Conway that non-ops aren't ever going to understand what being a woman is like, since they don't have a vagina? As a passing full-time non-op which I assume you are, how do you deal with this. Post-op groups keeping out non-ops makes as much sense as the exclusionary practices at the Michigan Womyn's festival. I know non-ops whose lives as women are more successful than many who have had SRS."
