While many of the essays I have written over the years have a footing firmly based in emotions, I have explored the theory of transgender from time to time. Let’s face it: some people are not going to accept that transpeople are not just crazy loons unless they have some “solid evidence.”
Unfortunately, what people consider to be solid evidence has a wide variance.
In January of 2011 I shared a review of the literature. Since most of “the literature” comes from psychological research, that won’t be good enough for some people. Since I live with a graduate professor involved in educating and mentoring doctoral researchers, I’m sure we might disagree on that point.
This literature review is not up to her graduate school standards. I have not included an annotated bibliography in APA style. I’m only a layperson when it comes to psychology.
My actual purpose (and hope) is to get people to read it, especially the people who need the information presented this way. Well, that and making a few corrections so that it properly fits into my autobiography thingy.
I’ll get started on the other side.
