    Thank you for speaking out for us! I have a close friend who was one of the “boys” in the UCLA study run by John Money.

    I am most offended by having to read the comment above by ‘fleur black’ – on a blog which deals with GID reform also.

    ‘Autogynism’ is a nonsense theory which should be consigned to the dustbin – it has been used for too long to harm trans people.

  3. Dear Kelley,
    I edit _Polare_, the quarterly magazine of the NSW Gender Centre (Sydney, Australia). I can send you a pdf of the latest issue if you wish to see the quality of our work. I would like permission to reprint (with attribution, of course) your recent papers on the DSM 5 and its definitions of transgender issues in our forthcoming issue (July-Sep). Best regards, Katherine Cummings
