Reviews tagging 'Transphobia'
The Argonauts, by Maggie Nelson
jacinderr's review against another edition
Other than that this book was too smart for me, I enjoyed parts and some bits really stuck with me but it came off too pretentious and academic at times. Very much from a white woman's perspective. Don’t regret reading it tho

cheye13's review against another edition
While this is a book I think straights should read, I find myself reluctant to recommend it to anyone not queer, and the text itself explains why: "...the butch characters would call each other 'he' and 'him,' but in the outer world of grocery stores and authority figures, people would call them "she" and "her." The point wasn't that if the outer world were schooled appropriately re: the characters' preferred pronouns, everything would be right as rain. Because if the outsiders called the characters "he," it would be a different kind of he" (pg 8).
