Kai Weston’s workshop introduction at TRED 2011. This short talk was followed by an extensive group discussion.
Kai addresses the arguments of Julie Bindel, who was invited to speak at the (cancelled) Royal College of Psychiatrists’ event “Transgender: Time to Change”. In doing so, he challenges two key assertions made by Bindel:
1) That “trans” phenomena stem purely from psycho-medical discourses.
2) That trans people reproduce and reinforce binary gender.
