“There are 3 crucial points here. One, every transsexual has the right to survival on his/her own terms. That means that every transsexual is entitled to a sex-change operation, and it should be provided by the community as one of its functions. This is an emergency measure for an emergency condition. Two, by changing our premises about men and women, role-playing, and polarity, the social situation of transsexuals will be transformed, and transsexuals will be integrated into community, no longer persecuted and despised. Three, community built on androgynous identity will mean the end of transsexuality as we know it. Either the transsexual will be able to expand his/her sexuality into a fluid androgyny, or, as roles disappear, the phenomenon of transsexuality will disappear and that energy will be transformed into new modes of sexual identity and behavior.”

Well there ya have it. Second-wave rad-scum indeed eh?

i mean also she eventually ended up assisting in the creation of “the transsexual empire” and stopped sticking up for trans women the moment it became inconvenient. so really only dworkin circa 1974 is off the hook

Fuck, well that’s some inconsistency. I mean I knew of THAT Dworkin but I’m surprised that she wrote this BEFORE taking part in the hot mess that is The Transsexual Empire.
