Thoughts on Jazz Jennings: A Transmaid’s Tale

Who my audience is, and who my audience is not

My primary audience, and the only reason I continue with online feminism, is young women. Young women today are growing up in a culture in which it is considered bigoted, murderous hatred to question any male person’s gender feels.
