Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Trans (but were afraid to ask) by Brynn Tannehill (2019)

431 pages (358 is text, the rest is bibliography and index),
Published by Jessica Kingsley Publishing

This is an extraordinary tour de force as is demonstrated by the length of the bibliography. There are 12 chapters:

  1. Trans 101
  2. Trans 201
  3. Dating and Sex
  4. Medicine/Mental Health
  5. (Bad) Science
  6. Law
  7. Politics
  8. Religion
  9. Military
  10. Media and Popular Culture
  11. Gender/Feminism
  12. Where We Go From Here

I found the Law, Politics and Religion sections to be somewhat unsettling.  Tannehill has pulled a lot of information together to illustrate how various forces are working against the Trans community. Not unlike a duck on the water, the significant stuff is under the waterline. Conservative lawyers, conservative politicians and conservative religious leaders are playing the long game here. They continue to chip away and chip away over time such that shifts are almost imperceptible, but at some point, the accumulation of which may prove to be very difficult for us. This book provides an understanding of what’s going on and hopefully will motivate us, as well as the LGB community. We can’t forget that this is a long range strategy that won’t be satisfied until ALL of us are erased, dead or back deeply in the closet…
