    1. Important institutional critiques buried in conflation of unchecked privilege with nonbinary identities and accusations that identity driven politics and existing movements in trans rights activism are to blame for institutional problems facing trans folks Weird, weird, and since my book club meeting on the subject is now past I am not putting in the effort to take deep breaths and clam myself through the aggravating parts to get at the good stuff that is actually pretty obvious though may well [...]

    2. The book is an insightful and, I would argue, mandatory read for anyone who conducts research on the materiality of sex and gender, regardless if you re focus is on trans people or not What Namaste conveys, quite clearly, is that theory serves a purpose and bodies of theory can only further theoretical progression understanding if their positionality identity are taken seriously and incorporated into the theory and do not merely serve a purpose to reach another point To be it bluntly, gender and [...]

    3. definitely recommend this book to counter a lot of the trans politics that seems to be around some of the trans read middle class white transmasc scenes i see around me in melbourne although its in a canadian setting its still really relevant i m really bad at remembering precisely what i liked about books and just remember they were good, but yeah good critiques about mainstream trans politics, about the dominance of anglophone activist paradigms and links to colonialism, the dominance of midd [...]

    4. Viviane Namaste is kind of confusing in a good way Years before it became the trans toast of the town she was making criticisms of the imperialism of US concepts of trans as an umbrella to cover the world and pointing out that drug addicts and sex workers are recipients of horrible discrimination, among other really well argued points about the limitations of what was and to an extent remains high theory for example attempts to remove GID from the DSM4 without acknowledging that it was there in [...]

    5. This is a great book, written by a sex , sex work bilingual author It really hits to the heart of why Canada is no closer to having a country wide trans advocacy group than it was 20 years ago and is likely to in 20 years from now.My only qualm with it is the all too predictable MTF centrism FTMs seem to be a footnote in her thoughts and are, as all too common in trans discourse, rendered largely invisible or relegated to a general choice of words rather than directly acknowledged and recognize [...]

    6. My review of this book is forthcoming in Hypatia A Journal of Feminist Philosophy 23 1 Winter 2008 Thanks to Talia Bettcher, Miqqi Alicia Gilbert, and Susan Stryker for their help with this review.

    7. It s okay Pretty repetitive, but some good points about the distinctions between transgender and transsexual politics I used this for an academic paper, and the novel esque cover was a little embarrassing to carry.

    8. Great book highlights the failure of the mainstream of the Canadian trans movement tendancy to ignore the struggles the trans people on the margins First Nations, Quebecois, Asian, People of Colour, sex trade workers, homelessness and people with special needs.

    9. This was clearly an academic piece, but it didn t feel like it while I read it Very informative about current trans related issues.
