Investigates the role of transsexualism in society
Transsexualism is based on the "patriarchal myths" of "male mothering," and "making of woman according to man's image."
"to colonize feminist identification, culture, politics and sexuality,"
"All transsexuals rape women's bodies by reducing the real female form to an artifact, appropriating this body for themselves .... Transsexuals merely cut off the most obvious means of invading women, so that they seem non-invasive."
