Evie, a pseudonymous transsexual, claims True Transsexuality is a physiological condition akin to intersex, arguing childhood medical transition is a corrective for “prenatal hormone exposure, abnormal androgen receptors and physiological brain differences”. The Dorx may not agree, but have a productive and interesting conversation as Evie refreshingly backs up arguments with evidence (of varying validity) instead trying to weasel out with postmodern doublespeak. There should be more conversations like this.

Colette Colfer, lecturer in Religious Studies at SETU, discusses some religious aspects of Gender Identity Theory (GIT), including faith in the unprovable; hierarchical community; holy days, festivals, and symbols; heresy and blasphemy; and a a way to be born again. But there are also differences, notably the absence of God. Nina attempts to explain this with a theory of “distributed God”, while Corinna describes gender apostasy. Are we getting less religious? What is the difference between a religion and a cult? What is Reality? Hear answers, and more questions, in Colfer’s delightful Irish accent (and the Dorx’s unexceptional American ones).
