Yes, there will be headlines; but then I'd like to talk about patriarchy. I lived as a male for 43 years, most of that time believing that I was one; now I've lived for a decade as a transwoman. The view from here: we live in an artificial, longstanding, dehumanizing system of domination, immiserating women and choking the vitality of men. I'll explain....
