Transgender Nation explores historical sexological categories and decodes contemporary medical transsexual ideology, charging that contemporary "treatments" like sex reassignment surgery all too often encourage assimilation and negate differences. Proposals for endocrinological euthanasia are examined for what they reveal about personal and cultural attitudes about gender. In addition popular culture representations of transgenderists as homocidal maniacs dressed to kill are contrasted with the grim reality that in a transgenderphobic, homophobic, and misogynistic culture they are more likely to be killed because they dress. Transgender Nation concludes that transgenderism is moving away from being considered a mental disorder, treatable with surgery, to a grass roots civil rights movement that has the potential to ignite the much needed Gender Revolution.
