I really have no desire to go to the transphobic Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. I don’t really care to protest the event (with Camp Trans). If the Klan wanted to have a meeting out in the midde of nowhere, I’d let em. But the one thing DOES bother me about Michfest are the performers. Artists like Alix Olson, Melissa Ferrick, and Ferron are playing at an event that actively excludes transwomen. I keep thinking, should I refuse to go to any further shows or buy their albums? Is it anathema to support any of these artists?
🙁 I really do love Ferron.

I’ve been over at Feministing all day, writing responses to “You learn something new every day.” The post is a response to The BBC’s recent coverage of a debate with Julie Bindel. Julie believes that sex reassignment surgery is a “mutilation.”
The debate over there is one of the best I’ve ever encountered. There’s a whole lot of cross talk and listening, and very few personal attacks. This is the first time I’ve ever posted about this in a forum where I didn’t feel like I was talking to a wall.
I’ve included some of the comments, and my responses, under the cut.
