The Liberation of Gender a Call for a new discourse

This blog is another means by which to express thoughts and reflections on my life as a person who is an African American Transgendered woman arguing for, even struggling for a voice which advocates the transgender person and as such the liberation of gender from the oppressive construct of the binary.  This becomes a signifiant goal of this blog.  As such careful thought must be given to this endeavor as the mountain is tall but the spirit and intent this mountain shall fall.  After time spent living "in between" I am cognizant that gender and its associated constructs of race and economics require that the scholar move in the intersectional realities of the interlocking oppressions of the American social contract.  To examine, critique and to bring forward a new and different discourse on the human evolutionary project.
