On page 111-112 of Janice Raymond’s “The Transsexual Empire”, the short story “The Woman’s Restaurant” which was published in Penthouse is quoted at length and used as evidence for Raymond’s assertion that people come out as trans simply to invade women’s spaces.

What a fascinating tactic.  Just imagine the possibilities for radical political analysis using, say, literotica.com as a data set.

“The Transsexual Empire” is ridiculous and surreal, which I support, but also malicious, ignorant, and intensely bigoted, all of which is much less admirable.  Sadly, it’s also still influential in certain circles.  I can only hope the people who support its message take the time to read it at some point.
