Julia Serano, author of Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity, Naomi Clark of the Sylvia Rivera Law Project and blogger at Feministe, and filmmaker Jules Rosskam of Against a Trans Narrative, were on Laura Flanders' GRITtv yesterday. The panel discussed Barack Obama's recent appointment of Amanda Simpson as senior technical adviser in the Bureau of Industry and Security in the Commerce Department.
I love it how they focus in automatically on the David Letterman transphobic jokes about Simpson's appointment and go in to real depth on quite a few other trans issues. It's well worth the watching time.
