Whipping Girl

http://bitchmagazine.org/article/feminine-protection

Hey guys! I know this is a little late on the topic but Dr. Gillespie mentioned the book “Whipping Girl” by Julia Serano. I am reading it right now for another class and think it really connects with some of our earlier discussions. She identifies as a transexual woman and her book discusses “sexism and the scapegoating of femininity”. I included a Bitch Media article about the book with an interview with Julia Serano. It covers a lot about femininity, masculinity, and her experiences as a transexual woman. I have a copy if any of you want to read it!
