Too Many

The other day I was seeking out my copy of Hirschfeld’s Transvestites in order to footnote something about his Theory of Intermediaries, and while pulling, I ended up with Kate Bornstein, Virginia Prince, and Judith Butler on my head.

Sitting there having been bonked in the head by one and having had another fall on my foot, I decided I have way too many books about gender.

But doesn’t everyone?
At least it wasn’t the Hirschfield that fell; now that book would hurt.
