on the words transsexual, transgender & queer

Happy almost 2008 everyone!

This morning I posted an entry in my blog-born-blog about how (and why) I used the words transsexual, transgender and queer throughout my book Whipping Girl. Some people had issues/disagreements with my use of these terms, so I felt some clarification was in order. The post can be found here.

It touches on some of the same issues as Jenn's recent post, so I thought it would be of general interest to folks here. Also, I decided not to post the entire text here (just the link) as it is about 2000 words long and I didn't want to be a space hog...enjoy!
