From the Back Cover:

Gender is the mine field we pass through every day. In the United States of materialism, gender is all too often determined by which anatomical sex you are. From birth we are bombarded with gender propaganda that supports a repressive dual gender system that pits the sexes and the genders against each other. Transgenderists as gender nonconformists challenge us to rethink traditional discourses on sex and gender. Transgender Nation dares to look at the male-to-woman transgenderist and transsexual from a sociocultural and socio-political perspective and maintains that it is not the individual transgenderist that is sick and in need of treatment but rather the culture that must be treated. 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 persona and cultural attitudes about gender. In addition popular cultural 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.

About the Author:

This book was 12 years in the making as author Gordene Olga MacKenzie became involved with the transgender community and the Gender Movement in the U.S.A., which she calls the civil rights movement of the 1990s. MacKenzie teaches courses on sex and gender, popular culture, and media politics, in the American Studies Department and the Women Studies Program at the University of New Mexico. She is an advocate and activist for transgender equal rights, which she believes is the key to a much needed Gender Revolution.
