Report
BACK
 

In the past few months in the United States not a day has gone by without a news story on transgender people in bathrooms, in the military, in the law, in sports, in school, in fact and fiction and everything in between. Transgender is the new gay, the new orange, the new reality show, the newest marker of exclusion and pathology to be seamlessly transitioned into a template for acceptance and tolerance. While we should undoubtedly celebrate recent attention to transgender rights, transgender visibility and transgender recognition, not to mention transgender access to public facilities, we must also resist some of the streamlining effects of this recognition and ask what price will be paid and by whom for this new visibility.
