  1. Excellent article, and thank you for bringing it to my attention. 🙂 In my various, probably unwise interactions with online radical feminists, I have had to concede them a valid point or two (who in the world doesn’t have one?), but they do their cause no favours by aspiring with religious fervour to police people’s behaviour and sense of identity. I.e. The aforementioned Janice Raymond, who famously stated that “the problem of transsexualism would best be served by morally mandating it out of existence” (http://janiceraymond.com/fictions-and-facts-about-the-transsexual-empire/).
