TMS_S2E32 | The Transgendered Advantage
The Mindfullness Show is written and produced by Josiah Samuel Harry. Music by Josiah Harry, Jr.
S2E32 Show Notes:
Are there tenable distinctions between sex and gender? Is gender distinct from biological sex? Is a trans woman a woman? Is a trans man a man? What are appropriate labels and terms for transgender people? Whose interests does it serve to treat sex and gender as mutually distinct?
