The first selected reading will be Julia Serano's 'Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity'

From the back cover:

"A provocative manifesto, Whipping Girl is a gripping, no holds barred account that debunks popular misconceptions about transsexuality, while exposing the depth of the cultural belief that femininity is frivolous, weak, and passive. Julia Serano, a transsexual woman, shares her experiences pre- and post-transition, revealing at every turn the ways in which fear, contempt, and dismissiveness toward femininity shape our societal attitudes toward trans women, as well as gender and sexuality as a whole."

    Unfortunately, my copy of this book was not at my parents' house as I expected it to be, so I didn't get to reread it or bring it. But hopefully I still remember enough from when I read it. :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
