My 1980 Raymond piece by request...
My thanks to ffutures
and Helen Wilson for running the pdf of this through text recognition and transcribing/editing respectively.( Collapse )
Raymond did not start all of this - that dubious honour belongs to Germaine Greer and Robin Morgan and Dennis Altman - but she was primarily responsible for decades of misery inflicted on trans women and trans men in the LGBT world. It is probable that her influence is present still in things like the betrayal of trans people over ENDA.
