"Trans*Scription Service" is a rundown of recent transgender related controversies within the feminist blogosphere, along with links and opinions by Kyosuke. It may be a regular thing. It may be a one time thing. It may be a "whenever in the name of Celestia Kyosuke damn well feels like it" thing. It may feature opinions at some point in the future by other trans* authors corralled by Kyosuke (GET IT, CORRALLED, PONIES?!). If, that is, she can manage to ROPE them into it (Okay, okay, I'm done, I swear). For those new to Jezebel/Groupthink/Powder Room, Kyosuke's avatar for a long, long time was Rainbow Dash. She's a fan of the show. Deal with it.
ETA: Reshared when it's actually evening in North America.
Today's topics: "The Dr. V Story" and Caleb Hannan of Grantland, Bruce Jenner and TMZ, and the problem of binary erasure.
Let's get started, shall we?
